The Edmonton Oilers have assigned defenseman Oscar Klefbom back to the Oklahoma City Barons in the American Hockey League.
The Oilers made the announcement Saturday afternoon, just a few hours before taking on the Calgary Flames.
Klefbom is Edmonton’s first-round pick, 19th overall, from the 2011 NHL Draft.
Klefbom sent back to OKC without playing. Word on him: "Definite NHL player, but not yet." Oilers being safe, probably back later in year.—
