Islanders forward Anders Lee is excited to have Jordan Eberle on the roster for the 2017-18 season.
"[Eberle's] bringing a right-handed shot as a forward that can obviously shoot and score from anywhere," Lee said. "He's a playmaker out on the ice and sees the ice extremely well. He can add some extra threats for us on the power play that can really help elevate us." Eberle accounted for 51 points last season in 82 games, but he is projected to skate alongside John Tavares and could return to the 60-point plateau in 2017-18. Aug 11 - 12:53 PM

Jordan Eberle already has some experience playing with John Tavares.

Eberle and Tavares played together in the 2009 World Juniors and have been friends since. Now that Eberle is a part of the Islanders, the duo could spend the 2017-18 campaign on a line together. "It’s a team where I know a lot of guys," Eberle said of the Islanders. "I’m excited to be part of that, get a bit of a fresh start. John is a generational player, he thinks the game better than anyone in the league. We’ve had some chemistry together in the past. I think the way he plays suits my game." Eberle had a down season by his standards in 2016-17 with 51 points, but if he develops chemistry with Tavares then we might see him get 60-70 points next season.

The New York Islanders have acquired Jordan Eberle from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Ryan Strome.

Eberle had 47 and 51 points in each of his last two campaigns, which is a step down from what we had seen from him in the past. Given that he has a $6 million annual cap hit for another two seasons, that offensive decline was problematic. For the Islanders though, Eberle has the potential to be the winger for John Tavares that they've been looking for. If the two mesh well in 2017-18 then Eberle could see a significant spike in production, possibly to the point where he returns to the 60-70 point range.

It sounds like the Edmonton Oilers won't be trading Jordan Eberle before today's 3:00 p.m. roster freeze.

According to Darren Dreger, things are quiet on the Eberle front for now, but TSN's hockey insider also adds that he expects something to happen on this front next week. There seems to be a good amount of interest in Eberle, which means that the odds of him being an Oiler at the beginning of next season are very slim.

TSN's Darren Dreger believes the Oilers will trade Jordan Eberle.

"The information that I've been given was that there's interest expressed and there are actual offers on the table, not something that Peter Chiarelli is willing to accept just yet, but they know they've got to do something," Dreger told TSN1260 Wednesday morning. "... Sometimes change for the sake of change is good and that might be the case for Jordan Eberle to get out of Edmonton." The team may need that cap space with new contracts coming for Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Cam Talbot. Oilers Now insider Bob Stauffer can see a situation where Eberle "gets moved for a forward like him that is protected through the expansion draft that's maybe had some challenging years or two and that might be a little bit lower price point on a team that needs more of a sure thing offensively."
Jun 7 - 3:29 PM

The Edmonton Oilers have reportedly received multiple trade offers for forward Jordan Eberle.

TSN's Darren Dreger says GM Peter Chiarelli hasn't received an offer he's willing to accept. Eberle scored 20 goals and 51 points in 81 games, which is a little low for a player making $6 million annually. Eberle struggled to produce in the playoffs, as he had just two assists in 13 contests during Edmonton's run to the second round. On a positive note, he's scored 20 goals or more in four straight seasons. With Connor McDavid needing a new contract after next season and Leon Draisaitl needing one this summer, the Oilers can't afford to pay Eberle $6 million. The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his contract.
Jun 3 - 10:56 AM

Jordan Eberle was disappointed with his performance during his first trip to the NHL playoffs.

He had no goals on 22 shots and just two assists in 13 postseason games. "That's the biggest thing, that's the one that really stings," Eberle said. "You take this long to get to the playoffs and you don't perform and play to your standards. That's what hurts." He scored 20 goals and 51 points in 82 games during the regular season. Eberle would like the opportunity to rebound in 2017-18 as a member of the Oilers, but there's a chance he could be traded in the off-season as GM Peter Chiarelli looks for ways to improve his roster. Coach Todd McLellan still has confidence in Eberle though and he stood up for him after Edmonton's playoff elimination.
May 13 - 10:53 AM

Jordan Eberle hasn't scored a goal yet in the 2017 playoffs.

Given that this is his first postseason run, that naturally also means that he has no career postseason goals. To make matters worse, Eberle also only has two assists in 11 playoff games. The Oilers need more from him, especially as they face elimination on Sunday.
May 7 - 4:07 PM

Jordan Eberle is still looking for his first career playoff goal.

He has contributed just two assists in nine games during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. "It's frustrating when you're not putting the puck in the net, but we're winning hockey games," said Eberle. "We're doing something right. Obviously, you want to contribute in that area, and I know it will come." He has posted 17 shots in the postseason. Eberle had three shots on target and a minus-3 rating in Sunday night's 6-3 loss. He will attempt to bounce back in Game 4 against Anaheim on Wednesday.
May 1 - 5:48 PM

Jordan Eberle has registered two assists in eight playoff games.

He got his first point Friday night in a 2-1 win over Anaheim since Game 1 of the opening round against San Jose. Eberle has had a quiet postseason in his first taste of NHL playoff action, but his struggles have not slowed down the Oilers at all.
Apr 29 - 11:01 AM

Jordan Eberle finally made his playoff debut on Wednesday after appearing in 507 regular season contests.

Eberle endured years of futility with Edmonton, but the Oilers have graduated from the rebuilding stage this season. Unfortunately Wednesday's playoff game didn't go as they had hoped as Edmonton suffered a 3-2 overtime loss to San Jose. Eberle did chip in with an assist, but he also took a minor penalty for tripping.
Apr 13 - 10:12 AM

Jordan Eberle's hat trick paced the Edmonton Oilers past Vancouver in the regular season finale on Sunday night.

Eberle, who has a four-game point streak heading into the playoffs, reached 20 goals on the season. The 26-year-old had 51 points in 82 games and will get his first taste of post-season action next week.
Apr 10 - 1:26 AM

Jordan Eberle scored twice and added an assist in the Oilers' 7-4 come from behind win over Colorado on Thursday.

He did it on five shots and added a blocked shot in 17:00 minutes on the ice. The points snap a three game pointless streak for the 26 year-old who now has 45 points in 74 games. Connor McDavid added two assists and Leon Draisaitl and Drake Caggiula each had a goal and an assist in the high scoring game.
Mar 23 - 11:45 PM

Jordan Eberle notched his second goal of the month during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Predators.

He has five points in February, each coming over his last six games as well. Which hopefully is a sign of things to come as the Oilers charge towards their first playoff berth in 10 years.
Feb 26 - 9:35 PM

Although Jordan Eberle has four points in his last four games, he isn't satisfied with his play.

Eberle still has just 12 goals in 61 contests, down from 25 in 2015-16 and his career-high of 34 goals. "You say I played well, but as a goal-scorer, you want to score," Eberle said. "I know I had a goal a couple of nights ago (in Philadelphia) but I want to get back to scoring consistently. Get one every couple of games. I still think my shots and chances are there, but I need to put them in. I’ve generally been a 14 per cent (shooter) and I’m half of that." To be specific, he has a 7.9 shooting percentage compared to his career average of 13.3%.
