Oilers Acquire Chris Wideman from Ottawa for Conditional Draft Pick

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Ottawa Senators Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports

The Oilers have a new Right Handed Defenseman.

Chris Wideman is a 28-year-old right defenseman who currently has 5 points in 19 games on the season.

I expect that this is to address the Kris Russell playing on his off-side situation, although time will tell if this is a major improvement.

Chirs Wideman is on a one-year, one million dollar contract.

The Draft pick is a 2020 conditional 6th-round pick. The conditions will be updated as details come out.

UPDATE:

The 6th round pick is the pick acquired from St. Louis in the Jarebek trade. If Jarebek plays 50 games this season, it becomes a 5th.
