As per Edmonton Oilers press release:

Edmonton Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the club has reduced its training camp roster by nine players.
 
The following three players were assigned  to their respective junior clubs today:

Martin Gernat (D) to Edmonton (WHL)
Kristians Pelss (RW) to Edmonton (WHL)
Tobias Rieder (RW) to Kitchener (OHL)
 
The following five players were released from their amateur tryouts:

Brett Ferguson (LW)
Chase Schaber (C)
Tyler Schmidt (D)
Colin Smith (C)
Wes Vannieuwenhuizen (D)

The Oilers have also announced Toni Rajala (RW) has been assigned to Ilves Tampere of the Finnish Elite League.
 
Edmonton’s roster now sits at 57 players.

So with Rajala going to Finland, does that free up a contract and put the Oilers at 48?  Like Mike Thomas last season, I wonder if Brett Ferguson will get a tryout contract with the Oklahoma City Barons, though admittedly, the Barons are crowded up front with an influx of new kids.
