More cuts today for the Oilers, and this should finalize their roster, due to the injuries they have (they currently sit at 27 bodies, including injuries). Here are your roster cuts:

Gilbert Brule, Josh Green, Ryan Keller and Ryan O’Marra must clear waivers to be re-assigned to Oklahoma City.
Teemu Hartikainen has been re-assigned to Oklahoma City.

One name that jumps out (and I’m happy about in a sense… although I sympathize with him) – Gilbert Brule. The Oilers have done the right thing here and sent him down to the farm team. That means Anton Lander has made the team, at least for now. Excellent news. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is also on the team, but that wasn’t a surprise… whether he will stay with the team after his 9-game “free preview” is another question. Also exciting, for me anyways, is that Lennart Petrell has made the team. Petrell is an excellent PKer who can line up on the wing or play center and also has great size and tends to use it.

So who is left? Continue reading 'Oilers final roster set….'»
