Called up from Bakersfield

The Oilers have made a call up.

I’m never going to get my Tyler Benson call up by the looks of things.

The Oilers have called up Brad Malone from the Bakersfield Condors. I am not sure if there is an injury, a trade in the works, or just a need for extra bodies in practice or on nacho duty, but this is the result.

Interesting to see with Andrej Sekera nearing a conditioning assignment to Bakersfield. The Oilers are currently over the cap and will have to move some money out in order to make room for him, so we can expect some sort of roster moves over the coming days.

More on that from our own OriginalPouzar:

I don’t expect Brad Malone to get into too many games, typical of his last few call ups, but he might help out the fourth line if he does.

More as it comes out.
