Oilers Cut 9

This is Tobias Rieder. The young man was one of 9 players cut by the Oilers today as they prepare for the pre-season schedule. This time last season the club cut 20 players (story is here) but with a doubleheader tomorrow night coach Renney probably wanted to see a few more kids before sending them away later in the week.

Rieder was sent back to junior along with Martin Gernat and Kristians Pelss. Five players were released outright: Chase Schaber (cut the same time last season), Brett Ferguson, Tyler Schmidt, Colin Smith and Wes Vannieuwenhuizen. Toni Rajala was sent back to Finland and based on performance I’d suggest he was the most disappointing player in camp.

Today’s winner? David Musil. He’s one of two (RNH the other) kids from the 2011 Entry Draft to survive the first cuts. He may get a game tomorrow night as part of the doubleheader. Good for him.
