Oilers sank into a reflection wire and added some depth to their wings. The team requested Valentina Zykova without a break from Carolina Hurricanes.

Zykov originally prepared LA career in the second round of 2013, then hand-hit with Chris Versteeg in 2016 in Carolina Hurricanes. It is a large, powerful, wing, which uses its size, and in front of the grid. He also has a good shot and superb skills.
Zykov, 6'1 "wing from Russia, put AHL really good numbers, but at the moment he did not translate into the NHL. Last year he scored 33 goals and scored 54 points in 63 matches for Charlotte Checkers, which is good for the majority in the group in the goal and the other for points. He also scored three goals and seven points in 10 matches with Carolina in the NHL last season.
At the age of two, he deals with the speed of $ 675,000, which is why there is almost no risk for this claim. Zykov, according to his knowledge and success in AHL, is someone who could devour if he was to play in the right situation here. If he avoids, he will get a hit contract. If not, then he can return it to the waiver and the team can try again with someone else. You might do Zykov with Ryan Spooner as a wingtip around JJ Khaira and that this line is Connor McDavid's double shifts with occasional.
I imagine that Patrick Russell, who does not need abandonment, will be sent back to AHL Bakersfield to make room for Zykov. I would like to see Zykov at the top of the six roles, but I do not know who of Jesse Puljujarvi, Alex Chiasson or Drake Caggiula I would be out of this mix.
I wrote about last week that Zykov took over WWYDW, Christian Pagnani suggested that Oilers should be introduced to him yesterday when he went to the abandonment, and Dusty Nielson talked about him yesterday at Inside The Nation.
