The Edmonton Oilers have announced that they have sent minor-league defenseman Shawn Belle to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for fellow minor-league defenseman Kevin Montgomery.

Belle, who signed a one-year deal with the Oilers last July, had 3 goals, 20 points and 61 penalty minutes in 39 games with the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League this campaign. He also had no points in five appearances with the Oilers.

Montgomery, Colorado's fourth-round pick in 2006, has 2 goals, 19 points and 34 penalty minutes in 51 games for the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League his season.

We're certainly happy we got the win, but we feel we have a long way to go obviously. We're going take another step in San Jose and it is going to be a tough one.

— Los Angeles Kings forward Justin Williams said after his team's Game 4 win vs. the San Jose Sharks
