Oilers send Arcobello to AHL, recall Klefbom

The Edmonton Oilers have assigned center Mark Arcobello to their American Hockey League affiliate and recalled defenseman Oscar Klefbom, a first-round pick (No. 19) in the 2011 NHL Draft.

General manager Craig MacTavish announced the moves Friday.

Klefbom (6-foot-3, 204 pounds) has played 12 games for the Oklahoma City Barons, with one assist and two penalty minutes.

Arcobello, 25, played in all 20 Oilers games this season after appearing in one NHL game at the end of 2012-13. He had two goals and 10 assists.

Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
