Oilers make some moves
The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms on a three-year entry level contract with defenceman Sebastien Bisaillon.
The 60", 205-pound native of Val-dOr, Quebec played the last four seasons with the Val-dOr Foreurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. In 2005-06, the 19-year-old blueliner scored a career-high 71 points in 63 games as he finished as one of the leading scorers among QMJHL bluleiners.
He netted 35 goals and added 36 assists to finish fifth in scoring among QMJHL defencemen and he led all blueliners with his 35 goals.
In 200 career games with Val-dOr from 2002-03 to 2005-06, Bisaillon scored 54-83-137 with 134 penalty minutes. Besides his 71 point season of a year ago, he also netted 15-33-48 in 69 games in 2004-05 and 4-14-18 in 67 games in 2003-04.
The Oilers also reduced their training camp roster to 34 players with the assignment of centre Jonas Almtorp and left wing Fredrik Pettersson.
Almtorp returns to Sweden, where he will play with Brynas IF Gavle of the Swedish Elitserien, while Pettersson was assigned to the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League.
