General Manager Craig MacTavish has announced that the Oilers have acquired defenceman Philip Larsen and a 2016 seventh-round draft choice from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Shawn Horcoff.

Larsen, a right-handed 23-year-old, appeared in 32 games with the Stars last season, notching a pair of goals and three assists while averaging 14:52 per game in ice time.

The Esbjerg, Denmark native was drafted by the Stars in the fifth round, 149th overall in 2008.

Horcoff, 34, played 12 seasons in Edmonton. Drafted in the fourth round, 99th overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, the 6-foot-1, 208-pound pivot has tallied 162 goals and 447 points in 796 career NHL games, all of which have been played with the Oilers.

In 35 career post-season games, including the 24 that were played during the club's run to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in 2006, the product of Trail, British Columbia recorded 10 goals and 23 points.

Horcoff was named as the 13th captain in Oilers history on Oct. 6, 2010.

AUDIO: Jerred Smithson talks trade | VIDEO: Jerred Smithson

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired centre Jerred Smithson from the Florida Panthers for a fourth-round draft pick in 2013.

Smithson, 34, has posted two goals, three assists and a -4 rating this season. The Vernon, BC product is also one of the League's best in the faceoff circle with a 54.8 percent success rate. Undrafted, Smithson spent his entire junior career with the WHL's Calgary Hitmen before turning pro in 2000 with the Lowell Lock Monsters of the American Hockey League.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound pivot has spent the bulk of his pro career (seven seasons) with the Nashville Predators, but has been a Panther since the 2011-12 campaign, appearing in 51 games.

In 578 career NHL games, Smithson has collected 38 goals and 95 points.

Happy Trade Deadline Day, hockey fans!

Much in the same way Jul. 1’s Free Agent Frenzy has, the NHL Trade Deadline has basically evolved into a national holiday. TSN and Sportsnet (and edmontonoilers.com/OilersTV!) devote their entire day of programming to the rumour mill, breaking news, reaction and analysis.

And why wouldn’t we? Since the 1979-80 season, there have been 459 trades involving 844 players on Deadline Day. The Oilers have been particularly active, making 51 deals and exchanging a total of 110 players with teams across the League.

Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini announced Sunday that centre Anton Lander has been recalled from the AHL's Oklahoma City Barons.

Lander was originally recalled to the Oilers on Jan. 31 and made his 2012-13 NHL debut that night vs. San Jose. The 6-foot-0, 194-pound pivot had recorded one assist in four games before suffering a broken foot that caused him to miss the next 16 games.

Upon his activation from the IR, Lander was then assigned to the Barons on Mar. 12.
