THREE PLAYERS ASSIGNED TO OKC
The Edmonton Oilers assigned center Travis Ewanyk and defensemen Martin Gernat and David Musil from the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League to Oklahoma City.
Musil was Edmonton's second round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft. Ewaynk, 19, was Edmonton's third round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft. Gernat, also 19, has played in 83 games with the Oil Kings the past two seasons.
It's doubtful the three young players will play in the series but the Oilers want to give them a taste of the AHL since they could be in the mix next season to play in Oklahoma City.
