Oilers sign Dane Byers

link coming

The @NHL_Oilers have signed forward Dane Byers to a 1-year, 2-way deal. He is a hard-nosed 26 year-old who has spent six seasons in the AHL

Looks like an OKC signing.

Toughness, Laki will be happy. I think he's been ok when called upon, I don't mind it.

Less career AHL forwards, more NHL top-4 Dmen.

Please.

There's the forward for Oklahoma. He has a pretty good track record in the AHL - he's a two time twenty goal scorer. Oklahoma will be interesting this year as Paajarvi could start the season down there along with Lander. Add in Keller, Pitlick, and Arcobello that's six forwards already.

Nice veteran signing for OKC.

Been the captain of the Falcons, Whale and Wolf Pack in the last three seasons.

Could be wrong, but didn't Keller head overseas?

He's Lyndon Byers' cousin if that's worth anything.

Ahh, I think you might be right.

Pitlick played wing most of the year right? It might be nice to give him a shot at centre this year with a veteran like Byers on the wing.

A very "meh" signing. Hopefully provide some grit to the farm.

Unless CBA talks progress, Hall, Eberle, Schultz and possibly RNH will also be starting the season down there.

Yup. I could see them running with Pitlick, Lander, Vande Velde and House/Martindale at center next year.

Not every signing is going to be a "sexy" one. This sounds like a solid addition to help mentor our kids down there while also providing leadership, grit and production.

well yeah, he's fairly young, tough as nails, can contribute, has a few NHL games under his belt and will stand up for the young guns.

OKC signing, he did play 8 games for the CBJ last season.

Looks like he has put up pretty decent points in the AHL and has a history of raking up some penalty minutes. 6'3, 204 pounds, LW and a former 2nd round pick.
