NHL rules dictate that teams are allowed only so many callups during a season, and after that only “emergency” re-calls are allowed. The Oilers have reached that limit.
I imagine Marc Pouliot would be the odds on favorite for the forwards, with Liam Reddox and Rob Schremp other possibles. Allan Rourke would seem to be the strongest D option.
A couple of other notes this evening: the Falcons have signed D Kenny Smith to a PTO. He was an Oilers draft pick in 2001 and has been more ECHL than AHL since turning pro. Also, Devan Dubnyk is playing tonight and his season SP is up to .910 and I think we may be seeing “the light turning on” for DD at the pro level. In the game tonight, Schremp has two assists, Pouliot one, and Slava Trukhno scored a goal which is a relief for those of us who felt he’d have a bigger AHL impact at age 20.
