Tyrvainen Hartikainen on bench

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often. — Winston Churchill.

Today the Edmonton Oilers released their list of Qualifying Offers:

General Manager Craig MacTavish announced today the Edmonton Oilers have issued qualifying offers to the following players:

    • Taylor Fedun
    • Sam Gagner
    • Magnus Paajarvi
    • Teemu Hartikainen
    • Niko Hovinen
    • Antti Tyrvainen

Taylor Fedun is the only player we will most likely see in OKC. Hartikainen, Hovinen and Tyrvainen have all signed with teams in Europe, however the Qualifying Offers will allow the Oilers to retain their rights, as they did with Linus Omark.

Those RFAs missing from the Oilers QO list will become UFAs:

  • Theo Peckham
  • Colten Teubert
  • Philippe Cornet
  • Alex Plante

The OKC Barons will lose two defencemen, Plante and Teubert, along with one forward, Philippe Cornet. — I am going to miss Cornet on the Barons roster.
