Oilers reduce training camp roster by four

The Edmonton Oilers reduced their training camp roster by four players Wednesday, sending three to the Oklahoma City Barons, their American Hockey League affiliate, and returning another to his junior team.

Defenseman Brandon Davidson and forwards Cameron Abney and Kale Kessy were sent to Oklahoma City. Forward Mitchell Moroz, the Oilers' second-round pick (No. 32) in the 2012 NHL Draft, was returned to the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.

The Oilers' training camp roster now includes 41 players: four goaltenders, 14 defensemen and 23 forwards.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
