Oilers Claim Adam Pardy and Adam Cracknell

New, comments

The Oilers add a couple of depth players via the waiver wire.

The Oilers claimed a pair of players off waivers this morning: Adam Pardy and Adam Cracknell. This after their last waiver claim was on Adam Clendening. Someone might want to make sure that the Oilers know that they can claim players not named Adam off waivers. They probably know this, but it's the Oilers so it never hurts to confirm.

Both Cracknell and Pardy are unrestricted free agents so they're here on a trial run, filling roster spots at the bottom of the Oilers lineup more than anything else for the last few weeks of the season.

Pardy, who will turn 32 next month, has played in 14 games for the Jets this season, recording an assist and eight penalty minutes, and posting a -3. Cracknell has been a decent fourth line option for the Canucks this season, scoring five goals and five assists in 44 games. I wouldn't get too attached to either, as it's doubtful that they'll be here past the end of the year.
