Oilers have announced 5 more cuts
Sent to Springfield Falcons of the AHL: Devan Dubnyk, Kip Brennan, Taylor Chorney
Sent to Regina St. Pats of the WHL: Jordan Eberle
Placed on Waivers: Rob Schremp (if he clears, he’ll be assigned to Springfield).
Theo Peckham was also placed on the IR.
That leaves us with:
|Forwards (17):||Defence(7):||Goaltenders (2):|
It’s expected that Pouliot will be put on the IR, allowing us to hang on to another forward for a bit longer. Bob Stauffer and Dan Tencer suspect that this will be Ryan Stone. They also suspect that Liam Reddox and Robert Nilsson will be the next two cuts, and Theo Peckham will be sent back to Springfield once he is healthy.
The Oilers have until Wednesday at 3pm to announce their 23-man roster (plus players on Injured Reserve list). Players needing to clear waivers must be placed on waivers on Tuesday.
