Edmonton Oilers Sign F Alan Quine

Quine one of a few depth signings, likely earmarked for the AHL team, that represent minimal risk to the club.

As per the Edmonton Oilers official Twitter account:

Quine (and the others, update coming soon) looks to be the tweenest tweener of the group, actually getting into 9 GP for the Calgary Flames in 2019-20. He posted a modest 1-0-1 in those 9 games, but produced significantly more offense in the AHL with their Stockton affiliate. In 38 GP, the 27 year old (28 in February) collected 14-32-46 and was, according to Bakersfield Condors veteran, one of the best forwards in that league:

Quine has now proven himself to be a reliable and high-level producer in the AHL, which probably represents an upgrade over the average Oilers tweener in seasons past. His contract — a one-way deal for $750k per PuckPedia — can be fully buried in the NHL without counting against the cap.

With Gaetan Haas still on the roster, and the signing of Kyle Turris presumably for the 3C role (though, perhaps he might be up for consideration as an extremely cheap 1RW), it’s likely that Quine starts the year as the team’s 5C.
