Sorry to throw some logic in peoples faces but with 48 contracts the Oilers aren't going to sign any undersized skilled fringe players to NHL contracts right now. I think the sole reason Stauffer mentions the kid is that he's from Edmonton, not for any Oilers based reason.

At the most, he could get a look in the off season after the Oilers shed some AHL and ECHL players. If I'm making a wager, it's that the most he gets offered by the Oilers is an AHL only contract for next season and a "let's see how you do".
