Oilers trade 6th round pick in 2010 to Chicago for Colin Fraser

Colin Fraser - Traded to the Oilers for a 6th round pick

Colin Fraser - Traded to the Oilers for a 6th round pick in 2010

Per Dan Tencer’s twitter, and care of Bob Stauffer:

“Oilers deal a 6th round pick to Chicago for RFA centerman Colin Fraser. Thanks to Stauffer for confirming Oilers end of the deal”

Colin Fraser is a 25 year old, 6’1, 188lb centreman from Surrey, B.C.. Last year he had 7 goals and 12 assists for 19 points, was +7 and had 44 PIMs. Fraser was 48.8% on the dot in 445 attempts last year with the Blackhawks, and was 6th on the team with 62 hits. He averaged approximately 8 minutes of even strength ice time per game, and roughly 1.5 minutes of short-handed ice time per game last year. He is an RFA as of July 1st, and earned 700k this past year. The Oilers will need to qualify him (at a minimum of 735K, I believe) to retain his rights.

Here is the scouting report on Colin Fraser:

Assets
Is aggressive and tenacious on the forecheck. Can play a defensive role and provide energy. Displays a projectable frame and some offensive upside.
Flaws
Needs to reduce the number of bad penalties he takes in order to thrive as a role player at the NHL level. Must also add bulk to better compete in the corners.
Career Potential
Energy forward.

Racki’s comment: purely a depth move, as suggested by Tencer. Does this spell the end of Marc Pouliot with the Oilers though?

Trade Deadline Bonanza part 2…

Let's get it on!

Let's get it on!

Well, today is the final day to make any trades, as of 3PM EST (1PM MST). Will we see anything happen, or will it be a whole lot of smoke for nothing?

We figured we’d start up one place to gather all the day’s trades and rumors. We won’t be putting down every dinky little trade, but we’ll discuss some of the bigger ones, Oilers or not.

So far, we have for the Oilers:

Denis Grebeshkov to Nashville for a 2nd rounder. Denis’ debut was pretty memorable, earning a goal and an assist against his old team last night

Cody Wild to Boston for Matt Marquardt.

Let’s hope Tambellini isn’t done. There is talk of interest in Staios (Washington I think it was) as well as Moreau and Pisani. Pisani got hit pretty hard last night into the end boards, so I’m hoping that he wasn’t hurt at all (anyone?).

Let the games begin! (er.. resume)

Btw, you can monitor the deals on TSN and discuss them in this thread.

There’s already been a few small deals so far.

Oilers deal tracker:
Oilers claim Ryan Jones off waivers from NAS.
Oilers trade Lubomir Visnovsky (nooo) to the Ducks for Ryan Whitney (hooray!) and 6th Round Pick
Oilers trade Steve Staios to Calgary for Aaron Johnson and 3rd Round Pick.

Trade bonanza begins with Grebeshkov trade..

Per e-mail from the Oilers:


General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have acquired a second round choice in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft from the Nashville Predators in exchange for defenceman Denis Grebeshkov.

Leafs/Flames pull off huge deal… Phaneuf to the Leafs

To Calgary Flames CGY
Name Pos Cap Hit Expires
Niklas Hagman LW $3.0M 2012 (UFA)
Matt Stajan C $1.75M 2010 (UFA)
Jamal Mayers RW $1.333M 2010 (UFA)
Ian White D $0.850M 2010 (RFA)
Cap total: $6.933M (-$0.317M)
To Toronto Maple Leafs TOR

Fredrik Sjostrom RW $0.750M 2011 (UFA)
Keith Aulie D ($0.733M*) 2012 (RFA)
Cap total: $7.25M* (+$0.317M)

* – Non-roster player on 2-way contract.

Difference in cap: $0.317M this year. However it looks like a long-term salary dump for them…:

TOR Toronto Maple Leafs
Name 2009-10 2010-11 2011-12 2012-13 2013-14
Phaneuf 6.5 6.5 6.5 6.5 6.5

Aulie 0 0 0 0 0
Total 7.25 7.25 6.5 6.5 6.5
CGY Calgary Flames
Hagman 3 3 3 0 0
Stajan 1.75 0 0 0 0
Mayers 1.333 0 0 0 0
White 0.85 0 0 0 0
Total 6.933 3 3 0 0
Cap Change -$0.317M -$4.25M -$3.5M -$6.5M -$6.5M

Details available here.

Edit (done deal): The Leafs also orchestrated another trade, sending Toskala and Blake to the Ducks for Giguere. Good deal for the Leafs. Toskala’s contract expires this year and is a cap hit of $4M. Blake’s is a $4M cap hit and expires at the end of 2012. Giguere is a big goaltending upgrade, and his cap hit is $6M and expires at the end of 2011.

Edit2: In what is turning out to be a pretty busy day, it looks like the Flames will send Olli Jokinen and Brandon Prust to the New York Rangers. Possibly coming back is Ales Kotalik (for sure) and Chris Higgins (not sure on that one). This is per Darren Dreger of TSN. Busy guy today.

Well, time for this Sunday’s rumors. As always, these trades aren’t meant to be directed towards the Oilers, necessarily.

Rumor 1: We’ll kick things off with a rumor involving Edmonton, however. Continue reading 'Trade Rumor Sunday – 2009-12-20'»
