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".
There will be more roster turnover this summer for sure. There will be enough contracts to use one on him.

Steve Mac- Gone, Grebeshkov-Gone, Fedun will leave, Miller has been mediocre..doubt he gets a QO, Bachman may stay, Lander will get dealt or head to Europe, Hemsky traded, Smyth possibly traded, Eager-Gone, Nick Schultz-Gone, Potter-?.

Chase, Yakimov, Slepyshev etc get ELCs.

More than enough contracts to sign him.
