Slimming Down

As per the Oilers website, the following players have been assigned to other destinations and for this year, their camp with the Edmonton Oilers is complete.

Assigned to Springfield (AHL): Jamie Bates (RW), Jordan Bendfeld (D), Kelly Czuy (RW), Jesse Dudas (D), Riley Emmerson (LW), Colton Fretter (LW), Bryan Lerg (LW), Ryan MacMurchy (RW), Matt Nickerson (D),
Andrew Perugini (G), Cody Wild (D)

Assigned to Barrie (OHL): Dalton Prout (D)

Assigned to Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL): Philipe Cornet

The Oilers now have 48 players on their roster and will start to give action only to those with a slight prayer of making the Oilers roster even though
there are still quite a few names, that are obvious selections for the next round of cuts. With 3 games in 3 nights starting Friday, the Oilers need to keep some depth around so as to not risk injury or exhaustion going into the season. You can bet after Sundays game, we'll see another waive of cuts and some real competition amongst those forwards looking to slot themselves in somewhere.

None of the players on this list have really stood out in any way thus far, but it was probably a great feeling to get some NHL experience under their belt.
