Oilers claim MacIntyre off waivers from Penguins

The Edmonton Oilers on Monday claimed wing Steve MacIntyre off waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 33-year-old MacIntyre has had two previous stints with the team. He broke into the NHL with the Oilers as an undrafted free agent in 2008-09. After splitting the following season with the Oilers and Florida Panthers, he returned to Edmonton in 2010-11 and played a career-high 34 games.

MacIntyre spent the past two seasons with the Penguins, playing a total of 13 NHL games while getting into 53 American Hockey League games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

In 91 career NHL games, MacIntyre has two goals, four points and 175 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

You can be hyped all you want, but his game will speak for itself. He's obviously going to be a great player so we've got to make sure we keep an eye on him. Whether it's his first game or his 1,000th game, our job is to take care of business, shut him down.
