By Cassie Gage,
The Edmonton Oilers have assigned defenseman Denis Grebeshkov to the Oklahoma City Barons on a conditioning assignment, recalled defenseman Philip Larsen and assigned defenseman Brandon Davidson to Oklahoma City, Oilers General Manager Craig MacTavish announced today.
Grebeshkov was the 18th overall pick of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. The Oilers acquired Grebeshkov as a free agent this past off-season.
Davidson was called up by the Oilers on October 6. He played in 26 games for Oklahoma City last season and during the team’s run to the Western Conference Finals.
Larsen played in Oklahoma City’s pair of opening weekend games against the Charlotte Checkers. The defenseman had one goal against the Checkers on October 4 and an assist on October 5.
The Barons travel to the Iowa Wild for a pair of games this weekend. Saturday’s game is a 7:05 p.m. CT start with Sunday’s contest starting at 4 p.m. CT. Oklahoma City returns home for a trio of games next week.
