LeBrun: Oilers Were Not Shopping Nugent-Hopkins

“I think with Edmonton, the only thing that changed is that a couple of teams have been calling on Nugent-Hopkins. Now, I don’t think Edmonton – in fact I know – they were not shopping him. I don’t think that was a priority for them, was to trade Nugent-Hopkins. But it doesn’t prevent other teams from checking in, because he’s a young center.

“Nashville did have a conversation. The Predators phoned before the trade of Seth Jones and they checked in with Edmonton. I think they were way more interested in Ryan Johansen anyway.
