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.
The #LetsGoOilers trade a 2020 6th Round Pick to #Senators for Wideman.— PuckPedia (@PuckPedia) November 22, 2018
He is on 1 Yr $1M Deal & will be UFA. This puts Oilers at 24 on Roster so someone will need to go to AHL or on IR. https://t.co/onpGRVRTMN pic.twitter.com/DIa7IqmU7y
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.
