The Edmonton Oilers are still in the process of choosing their next general manager as TSN Edmonton Bureau reporter Ryan Rishaug reports that CEO Bob Nicholson’s list is down to three or four candidates.

Likely still in the mix for the GM position in Edmonton are London Knights general manager Mark Hunter, current Vegas Golden Knights assistant general manager Kelly McCrimmon and Montreal Canadiens pro scout Sean Burke, who was also a GM for Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The Oilers fired general manager Peter Chiarelli in January and replaced him with Keith Gretzky on an interim basis.
