Oilers Trade D Cody Wild for Bruins F Matt Marquardt

Via Twitter.

http://twitter.com/NHL_Oilers

Some info on Marquardt from hockeysfuture.

A mammoth of a player, Marquardt already has NHL size. He's a relentless and punishing hitter with the ability to change the momentum of the game with his checks. However he also possesses surprising soft hands and an accurate shot. As can be expected, his skating requires plenty of work, although with his work ethic that should not be a problem in a few years.

Wasn't the coach of the falcons just on stauffs show bemoaning the lack of defencemen on the farm? I believe his quote was something like " I just looked at the depth chart closed it down, things look bleak" Not the exact quote but you dig? That being said I think Cody was not going to develop at the rate that was expected, but still, we need some D on the farm amirite?

From our Prospects page:

History

A native of Ontario, Marquardt wasn't selected in his OHL draft year. Instead, Ted Nolan enticed him to come east and join the Moncton Wildcats. The Wildcats couldn't be happier, as Marquardt improved and garnered more ice time as the season progressed, finishing with 25 points, 16 of which were goals. The bruiser was one of the team's many unsung heroes during the Memorial Cup tournament.

Selected by 7th round (#194 overall) in the 2006 entry draft by CLB.

2006-07: With the departure of several high-end prospects to a variety of AHL destinations and headman Nolan to the NHL, Marquardt had an unexpected surge in offensive production his second season with Moncton. He was tops on the team in both goals and total points. 19 of his goals came on the powerplay.

2007-08: After beginning the season with Moncton, he was traded at the deadline to the Baie Comeau Drakkar. Baie Comeau suffered a disappointing loss in the first round to the Oceanic from Rimouski.

Traded to the Boston Bruins in May 2008. Signed an entry level contract.

2009-10: Now in his second season with Providence and his second professional season, the 22-year-old has shown flashes of offensive ability and also possesses the big frame the Bruins seem partial to. His play is enigmatic though and he can be offensively inconsistent.

Talent Analysis

A mammoth of a player, Marquardt already has NHL size. He's a relentless and punishing hitter with the ability to change the momentum of the game with his checks. However he also possesses surprising soft hands and an accurate shot. As can be expected, his skating requires plenty of work, although with his work ethic that should not be a problem in a few years.

Future

Long shot for the NHL.

Pretty sure both players were both in the ECHL. Nothing more then a swap of depth AHL/ECHL players.

Because his name is hard to type in, here's his hockeydb page

http://hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=89492

Currently playing for Boston's ECHL team. Doesn't look like an enforcer...or anything for that matter.

I used to live in Moncton, so I saw Marquardt play in junior lots ....

All this guy has is size. He can't really skate all that well.... that's what screems at you when you watch him play. Career AHLer imo.

EDIT: A really good comparison....think Stephane Goulet (another former Moncton Wildcats player)

Yes but Daum also said in a very tongue in cheek way that the Oilers "could" get a prospect d-man who needs some AHL time to join the team....

I'm pretty sure this is a move to help bolster the backend on the farm.

Minor deal. They can't all be blockbusters. Addresses size need in the organization.

Yes...

Nothing bolsters the backend quite like shipping out a defenseman for a forward....
