The Edmonton Oilers are trying to make a big move via free agency.

TSN insider Bob McKenzie is reporting that the Oilers are among the teams with interest in college free agent Zach Aston-Reese. Aston-Reese was dominant with Northeastern University's Huskies this season record 63 points in 38 games, that's 31 goals and 32 assists on the season and as a result he's considered the top free agent out of college.

McKenzie believes that Aston-Reese will be making his decision within the next 24-48 hours, and considering that he is guaranteed an entry-level deal, it will be a question of location and comfort, not salary, for Aston-Reese.

Needless to say a 205lbs 22-year-old with serious offensive talent would be a welcome addition to the Oilers roster.
