The Edmonton Oilers have recalled tough guy Ben Eager from the American Hockey League, according to Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun.

This move coincides with the trade the Oilers made this evening.

The Oilers shipped fourth line forward Mike Brown to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a fourth-round pick in next year’s NHL Draft.

The Oilers put Eager, 29 years old and a veteran of 400 NHL games with 873 penalty minutes, on waivers following the club’s first game of this new season.

Eager cleared waivers and was reassigned to the Oklahoma City Barons in the AHL.

    Well they made their team worse exchanging Brown for Eager, but at least they got a fourth round pick out of it?

    what happen to MacIntyre? Eager if he pulled his head out of his back side might be a decent player. Good luck Oilers you need it.
