Gilbert Brule has been put on recall waivers

Gilbert Brule has been put on recall waivers


The Oilers have recalled Ryan O’Marra and Magnus Paajarvi from the Oklahoma City Barons. It looks like they are also attempting to recall Gilbert Brule as well, as he has been placed on recall waivers.

Ryan O’Marra has 7 goals and 9 assists in 34 games with the Barons, and 1 assist in 3 games with the Oilers. Magnus Paajarvi has 1 goal and 8 assists in 10 games with the Barons. He struggled as an Oiler though, earning just 3 assists in 25 games. The Oilers sent him down with hopes that he could gain more ice time to work on his game a bit. With key injuries to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and now possibly Jordan Eberle, he might even get that opportunity at the NHL level.

Gilbert Brule hasn’t played at all for the Oilers this year. He has 8 goals and 10 assists in 27 games with the Barons. Should a team claim Brule off waivers, the Oilers will be on the hook for half of his salary and cap-hit (half of $1.85M, or $925k… expiring at the end of this year).

    Omark still hurt?

  2. Racki says:

    Probably.. he only has 7 gp so far this year, and he hasn’t fled for the KHL yet.

    Omark is expected to be back 2nd week of February according to Todd nelson. His ankle was assessed, appears to be healing properly, but will require a second cast and obviously time. He’ll be healthy just in time for the trade deadline it would appear on February 27, 2012 at 3 pm EST.
