Edmonton Oilers Press Release
/ Edmonton Oilers
General Manager Tambellini issued the following statement regarding the recent comments made by Oilers defenceman Sheldon Souray.
“Sheldon’s comments are unfortunate and counterproductive, but we are going to manage through this in a responsible and professional manner. We understand Sheldon has had a tough year and he has a desire to play elsewhere. His additional comments regarding being “forced to play” when injured are far more serious and my stance is that they are demonstrably untrue.”
Steve Tambelllini is currently in Toronto to attend the NHL LG Draft Lottery Show on TSN and will not make additional public statements regarding this issue until he speaks to the media in Edmonton on Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 pm (MT).
