I’m glad to hear that Gingerballs will finally get a chance under Tom Renney. I hope Colin Fraser sits while Liam Reddox gets some games. Our bottom six could use the hard work ethic of a guy like Reddox. Jordan Eberle’s injury sounds minor, so far, so Omark might not be here long, but we’ll see.
Here is official word from the Oilers:
Omark, 23, was recalled by the Oilers on December 8 and made his NHL debut on December 10 vs. Tampa Bay, scoring the deciding goal in the shootout. He played in eight games collecting a goal and four assists before being assigned back to Oklahoma City on December 31.
The 5’10”, 174-pound Overtornea, Sweden native has appeared in 28 games with Oklahoma City this season scoring 31 points (14-17-31), ranking him third among Barons scorers.
Reddox is currently second on the Barons scoring list with 33 points (18-15-33) and is a team-best plus 14. This is the first time Reddox has been recalled this season.
The 24-year-old native of Whitby, Ontario, was originally drafted by the Oilers in the fourth round (112th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. In 56 career NHL games, Reddox has 14 points (5-9-14) and 14 penalty minutes.
One major point of note…. Liam Reddox has to clear waivers to be sent back down. So that might keep him here.
