The Oilers have announced a deal has been reached with winger Cameron Abney.
Cameron Abney was a third round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft at 82nd overall.
Abney, who turns 20 next month had spent his 2010-11 season with the Edmonton Oil Kings. In sixty games, Abney has 20 points (7G-13A) and 72 PIMs.
If you haven’t seen him with Edmonton or the Everett Silvertips, you may remember this gem from the YoungStars Tournament in Penticton this past September.
(The real interesting parts come at about 00:45)
Abney looks to be a guy who could fill in nicely on a fourth line. He’s a tall, physical guy (you can hear Gene Principe say he’s 192 pounds, but he’s listed at more like 205) who doesn’t look like he’s lumbering around with a bunch of cement in his skates. He’s not going to win any scoring titles, but he doesn’t look lost with the puck.
A NEW SEGMENT!
This week, we’ll begin a segment called By The Numbers, where we take a look at and recap one Oiler a day who played on the 2010-11 Oilers. Tomorrow, we’ll start at the beginning with number 2, Jim Vandermeer.
Don’t touch that dial.
