The Edmonton Oilers have recalled forward Liam Reddox from the Springfield Falcons and assigned goaltender Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers to their American Hockey League affiliate.
Reddox, a 5’11”, 180-pound left winger from Whitby, Ontario has made an impact with the Falcons in his first AHL season. Through Springfield’s first 15 games this season, the 21-year-old forward sits third on the Falcon scoring list with 10 points, having scored four goals and six assists. He is +3 and has registered 10 penalty minutes.
Reddox ranks second on the Falcons in goals, third in assists and sixth in plus-minus.
Reddox made his professional debut with the Stockton Thunder in 2006-07, scoring 8-18-26 with 49 penalty minutes in 70 games for the Oilers’ ECHL affiliate. He added 2-1-3 with 4 PIM in six playoff games.
Prior to turning pro, Reddox played four seasons of junior hockey with the Peterborough Petes of the OHL from 2002-03 to 2005-06. The Oilers fifth choice (4th round), 112th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, scored 86-124-210 with 136 penalty minutes in 208 career games with the Petes and was a member of Peterborough’s OHL championship team in 2005-06. He scored one assist in four games at the 2006 Memorial Cup tournament and was named to the OHL’s all-rookie team in 2003-04.
Drouin-Deslauriers was recalled from Springfield earlier this week and dressed as back-up to Mathieu Garon in the Oilers game at Vancouver last night.
