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

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
