Brenden Morrow

After tormenting the Oilers in the playoffs for so many years early on in his career, Brenden Morrow will now get the chance to return the favour as he seeks to re-establish himself as a hard-nosed leader and power forward.

Dallas's transformation continues, as they trade their captain in hopes that star forward Jamie Benn is ready to take his place. In return for Morrow we receive an exciting forward in Linus Omark, who is currently carving up the competition overseas and looking to start fresh in Dallas. We also receive Theo Peckham, who will bring some grit and tenacity to a Stars organization that lost some toughness in recent months.


With few days remaining till the Trade Deadline, The Edmonton Oilers made a statement by bringing in gritty veteran power forward Brenden Morrow.

While the once intense and often lopsided playoff rivalry has put the two franchises at odds, GM Modo and GM Soli put bad blood behind them and came together to consummate a deal to help both their franchises.

"Brenden waived his NTC to come to Edmonton. GM Modo says Brenden was a consummate pro throughout this difficult process. He understands it's a business and the writing was on the wall in Dallas" said GM Soli. "A large part of the reason Brenden decided to come here was the proximity to his home in Carlyle, Saskatchewan. Chalk a win up for provincial media rights, eh? Jordan [Eberle] also said he'd share his Rough Rider's season tickets"

Brenden Morrow brings a long overdue boost of physicality to the Oilers lineup. His 130 hits in a shortened 57 game campaign last season would have lead all Oilers forwards in that category last season. The former Stars Captain will be slotted in next to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and fellow Saskatchewan native Jordan Eberle to begin his Oilers tenure. With #10 currently held by Captain Shawn Horcoff, Brendan Morrow will wear #18 for the Oilers.
