Griffin Reinhart played his best game as an Oiler before the break, but it may be difficult for the Oilers to recall the young defender. Why? Waiver pickup and some interesting names coming off IR.

Oiler trade rumours are always all over the place in terms of who is going and why, but there has been a common thread during this rebuild: whichever Oiler is rumoured to be traded will almost certainly be portrayed as a slug. Now it’s Jordan Eberle’s turn. I have to admit I didn’t see that one coming before this season.

Iiro Pakarinen took an unconventional route to the NHL, but it certainly appears that he has arrived. The 24-year-old Finnish right wing is in his second season with the Edmonton Oilers’ organization and when his entry-level deal ends this summer it’s a very good bet that he’ll be invited back.

Don't ask me why, but every season when the calendar turns to January, minor league prospects seem to sort themselves out. The arrows for some Bakersfield Condors have been going in a very good direction since January 1, and for others it is another year without a spike.

Friedman: I do believe we are getting closer to day #Oilers makes move w/ one of its young Fs for a D. I'd rank them 1. Eberle/ 2. RNH— Chris Nichols (@NicholsOnHockey) January 29, 2016
The Peter Chiarelli Fix-It Shop has been making slow and measured additions through the season, with Zack Kassian being a recent (and effective) example. Based on what we heard this afternoon, perhaps there is a (massive) shoe to drop in the coming days.
