Nolan Patrick To Sign a PTO With The Edmonton Oilers?

Nolan Patrick’s career might get a revival as he is rumoured to be healthy to sign a professional tryout contract. The 2017 second overall pick hasn’t played an NHL game since October 22nd, 2021 after suffering an injury and missed his second full season during the 2022-23 campaign. Though, it’s currently unclear if Nolan Patrick is healthy enough after suffering multiple injuries throughout his junior and professional career.

Nolan Patrick has posted 32 goals and 45 assists for 77 points in his 222-game career. He has split four seasons between the Philadelphia Flyers (three seasons) and Vegas Golden Knights (one season). Nolan Patrick has also missed the 2019-20 and 2022-23 season completely since joining the NHL with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Final Thoughts

Almost every professional tryout contracts are low risk, the player signed to one is expected to perform to a certain standard to earn a contract. The risk is low regardless for Nolan Patrick, but the reward could be huge if he is able to return to the NHL.

The Edmonton Oilers could also put Nolan Patrick into a role where he succeeds and performs to the Oilers’ expectations. Patrick was touted highly enough to be drafted second overall, and I’m not saying that he could potentially become a star player, but he could serve as a strong depth piece for the Oilers.

If the Oilers sign Nolan Patrick to a contract, I don’t expect anything above $1 million for one-year. It most likely will end up being league minimum for a year, and it gives Nolan Patrick a chance to end up in the NHL again.
