Oilers re-assign Shawn Belle and Ryan O'Marra to Oklahoma City

Rumor from Dan Tencer is that Shawn Belle and Ryan O’Marra are headed back down to Oklahoma City. Nothing official yet though. But Speculation from Tencer is that Linus Omark will return to the team, and Liam Reddox will also be called up. I could handle that. I would have liked to have seen Belle a bit more, but at least they’re keeping Jeff Petry here. Belle’s returning back to the AHL has more to do with Jim Vandermeer returning to the line-up, however. He should be back for Tuesday’s game (which makes me think that only 1 call-up will be made, unless Eberle is out long term).

Jordan Eberle gets his MRI today. Apparently it’s an ankle injury. Luckily, it is not broken though, as x-ray’s have proven. He is wearing a boot cast on it, according to the Edmonton Journal.

Edit: it’s official, per Ryan Rishaug… Belle and O’Marra have been returned back to Oklahoma City.

    “Belle had a tough night”…Renny said…”he was paired with Struddy”

    What’s your take on that…was it a tough night playing with Struddy or tough on Belle’s part?

    I honestly missed most of this game, unfortunately. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re right though. At any rate, 1 game isn’t much to judge someone by. Luckily he’s only going down because Vandermeer is ready to play now.

    I think that any D man paired with Struds will have a tough night. Dude is brutal.

    Renney likely meant that he played poorly though. Having said that, his reluctance to use Struds is obvious.
