The Case for Keeping “The Red Ox”

The simplest, yet most fitting nickname I have heard for anyone

The simplest, yet most fitting nickname I have heard for anyone

So there’s been a bit of buzz lately in Oilerland around Magnus Paajarvi, Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, and a few others. One guy that has crept up every now and then is Liam Reddox, but I personally don’t think his name can be mentioned enough.

It seems that since last year, he’s been doing everything in his power to make a name for himself and stay on this roster. Last year, Reddox was just giving us a taste of what he can do in a checking role, but didn’t last past November. An interesting stat of his from last year was his 24 hits in 9 games (only Peckham and Jacques had hits per game for the Oilers last year, although granted that’s a pretty hard pace to maintain).

The thing with Liam Reddox is his biggest issue has always been size. He’s got something to prove every night, and tries his darndest (yes I just said darndest) to prove he is a solid checker, but could never really manage to body guys off pucks effectively. He plays a high tempo game, and isn’t afraid to block shots if needed.

Reddox re-signs


As per the Oilers website:

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with left-winger Liam Reddox on a one-year contract.

Reddox, 24, played 70 games with the Springfield Falcons last season collecting 35 points (18G,17A). He also appeared in nine games with the Oilers posting two assists.

Oiler RFA’s Qualified

Racki seems to be slacking off on the Oilers news front (moving), so I’ll have to pick up some of the slack here.

Today from the Oilers site:

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have issued qualifying offers to the following players:

Gilbert Brule
Andrew Cogliano
Jeff Deslauriers
Devan Dubnyk
Colin Fraser
Sam Gagner
Jean-Francois Jacques
Ryan O’Marra
Theo Peckham
Liam Reddox

I don’t like the fact that Pouliot didn’t get qualified, but other than that it looks pretty standard. I’m expecting deals to be announced going forward for a few of the players, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Poo gets an offer from the Oilers as an UFA for league min.
