Confirmation tonight the Edmonton Oilers have signed minor league defender Shawn Belle. It’s a nice bet (2-way deal, 600/150 as per Rishaug’s twitter) because at the very least he helps Okla City in a big way.
Belle has a solid resume and the scouting report
suggests he might be able to both challenge at TC and represent a solid callup option.
He was a first round pick in 2003 (STL) and has terrific foot speed. A very nice depth move by the GM.
