Edmonton Oilers

NHL CapHit: $4,000,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Oilers have placed Kris Russell (concussion) on LTIR.

Russell has been sidelined by a concussion since January 29th and without an imminent return, he was moved to LTIR to provide some salary-cap relief for their deadline moves. With both Russell and Oscar Klefbom out right now, GM Ken Holland went out and acquired Mike Green from the Red Wings on Sunday night.

The Oilers have signed Kris Russell to a four-year deal worth $16 million ($4.0M AAV).

The Oilers were able to clear some cap space by trading away Jordan Eberle, but used most of it to sign Russell. The 30-year-old doesn’t grade out well in the analytics community, but the Oilers obviously like what they have in the undersized, but fearless blueliner. Russell had one goal and 12 assists (13 points) in 68 games in his first year with the Oilers.

The Oilers have activated Kris Russell (undisclosed) from IR; expected to play on Saturday.

Russell has missed the last seven games with an undisclosed injury, but he is expected to draw back into the lineup tonight in Dallas. Russell finished last year with the Stars, so he is probably excited to be back in the lineup for this particular game. He has three assists in 11 games with the Oilers so far.
