By qualifying the 21-year-old, the Oilers would maintain his rights if he decides to play in Europe next season - something the winger's agentwill happen if he isn't traded away from Edmonton.
Oilers general manager Ken Holland said recently that he'll only deal Puljujarvi if it makes sense for the team.
After being selected by Edmonton with the fourth overall pick of the 2016 draft, Puljujarvi has struggled to carve out a role, contributing just 17 goals and 37 points in 139 career contests.
The qualifying offer to Puljujarvi must include a 5 percent raise, or just over $874,000, Spector added.
Teams have until 5 p.m. ET on June 25 to extend qualifying offers to their restricted free agents.

Report: Canucks don't intend to issue qualifying offer to Hutton.
Ben Hutton appears to be headed toward unrestricted free agency. The Vancouver Canucks are not planning to qualify the defenseman, reports Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. As a player with arbitration rights, Hutton's salary was going to jump out of Vancouver's comfort zone, adds Friedman. Hutton, a pending RFA, would become a UFA if the Canucks don't tender him a qualifying offer. The 26-year-old produced 20 points over 69 games in his fourth NHL season and ranked second on the club in average ice time, logging 22:21 per contest. He's coming off the second campaign of the two-year, $5.6-million extension Hutton signed with the club in November 2016.
