Acquired by the Oilers on the waiver wire in January 2019, Cave has appeared in 44 games with Edmonton scoring three goals and one assist.
This season, Cave has spent most of his time with the Bakersfield Condors. Playing in 44 games, he’s scored 11 goals and 23 points.
It goes without saying but please keep the entire Cave family in your thoughts during what is an incredibly scary time.
