Oilers send forward Arcobello to AHL, recall defenceman Klefbom

EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have assigned rookie forward Mark Arcobello to the American Hockey League's Oklahoma City Barons and have recalled defenceman Oscar Klefbom.

Arcobello, 25, had 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) in 20 games for the Oilers this season, tied for third on the team. But he had no points in his last four games after scoring his first two career goals, including the overtime winner, in a 4-3 win over Florida.

In Edmonton's last game, a 3-0 loss to Dallas on Wednesday, Arcobello was minus-1 and managed one shot in a season-low 11:50 of ice time.

Klefbom, 20, has played in 12 games for the Barons this season, recording one assist and two penalty minutes.

The six-foot-three, 204-pound defenceman is in his first professional season in North America after spending the past three seasons with Farjestads of the Swedish Elite League.

The Oilers selected Klefbom in the first round, 19th overall in the 2011 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
