Oilers Head Coach Dallas Eakins confirmed that the team will recall forward Tyler Pitlick from the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League.
This is Pitlick's first-career NHL call up, that comes after a strong camp and pre-season in Edmonton that continued down in OKC. He has been slotted in on the Barons top forward line with Linus Omark and Anton Lander. He has a goal and two assists in seven games.
The call up comes on the heels of a practice in which both Jordan Eberle and Ryan Smyth did not skate with the team.
