BLOG: Oilers announce roster changes
General Manager Craig MacTavish announced today the Edmonton Oilers have recalled defencemen Martin Marincin and Corey Potter, as well as forward Anton Lander from the American Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Barons.
In addition, the Oilers have assigned forward Will Acton and defenceman Denis Grebeshkov to the Oklahoma City Barons.
This will be Marincin's first NHL call up since being drafted by the Oilers 46th overall in the second round of the 2010 draft. The 6-4 defenceman has played in 20 games for the Barons this season, scoring two goals and adding four assists.
Ilya Bryzgalov has been placed on IR to make room for the transactions.
