The Los Angeles Kings’ dispute with the Edmonton Oilers regarding the health of Colin Fraser has been settled according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie. McKenzie reports that the Oilers provided “a small cash outlay” to offset some of Fraser’s medical costs and that all sides are “moving on.”
As you may remember, the Kings insinuated that the Oilers weren’t totally up front about Fraser’s health, as the depth center was part of the Ryan Smyth trade. Fraser essentially took the place of Gilbert Brule, another unhealthy Oilers forward who was supposed to be part of the original Smyth deal.
In the grand scheme of things, it looks like it won’t amount to much more than a source of entertainment in the hockey-poor months of summer time. Fraser has a goal in two games with the Kings and the Oilers are fighting for a playoff spot, so aside from a slight hint of awkwardness at the golf course/GM meetings, this executive scuffle won’t have the same legs as the last time the Oil tangled with an outspoken California GM.
