The Edmonton Oilers demoted Jeff Deslauriers to the AHL for a “conditioning” stint.
The Falcons could use the help, as they’ve been playing Devan Dubnyk into the ground.
Deslauriers has most definitely been jerked around through his career, from not having an AHL team and being forced into a secondary role to the current situation where Edmonton can’t decide what to do with their G situation.
The question about exactly what he is remains. The Oilers claim he’s a future starter, while the math suggests he’s something less than an NHL calibre starting goalie.
