Would be a nice fit here with Emelin out.

I watched quite a few Oilers games and he wasn't the same after he attempted a check and ran into the boards and hurt his back/tailbone. Great crease clearer but once Emelin comes back would probably be delegated to 7th defenseman status. I am always skeptical when a team such as Edmonton releases or doesn't sign a player like Fistric because they desperately need a physical presence on the back end. They also let Teubert go; another physical player that just was lost on their back end.
