Oilers Trade for Sutton

The Edmonton Oilers are adding size and truculence by the minute. Andy Sutton has been acquired from Anaheim in exchange for Kurtis Foster. There may be a pick involved, I’m still checking it out.

Like Cam Barker, acquired earlier in the day, Sutton is coming off a subpar performance in 11-12 (39gp, 0-4-4 +1 with 87pims) but at 6.06, 245 he’s big, tough and mean. His secondary numbers imply a third pairing enforcer and a guy who can help out on the PK. I’ll have a blog post up later today about what this means for the 11-12 roster, but the addition of Sutton and Barker cannot bode well for Taylor Chorney and Jeff Petry (likely OKC bound).

The Oilers are getting a major makeover.
