General Manager Steve Tambellini announced a change to the Hockey Operations Department on Wednesday, relieving Assistant General Manager and Vice President of Hockey Operations Kevin Prendergast of his duties.
"We would like to thank Kevin and his family for their contribution to the Oilers organization over the past 20 years. We wish him all the very best in his future endeavors," Tambellini said in a statement.
Prendergast, 56, had been with the Oilers since 1990 and oversaw the Oilers' pro and amateur scouting staffs.
The Oilers finished last in the overall standings this season with 62 points. They will have the No. 1 pick in the NHL Entry Draft in June.
