Edmonton Oilers claim goalie Troy Grosenick

Nonetheless, with Mike Smith heading to the LTIR yesterday the Oilers needed a quick fix for a third goaltender and Grosenick will be just that. The Oilers will likely use him in game action later this month in a road back-to-back with Toronto and Ottawa.
