Oilers Recall Chris Vande Velde


The Edmonton Oilers have recalled centre Chris Vande Velde from the OKC Barons.

Vande Velde’s call-up is likely to help replace Shawn Horcoff in tomorrow’s game versus the Blue Jackets.  Horcoff is said to be suffering from back spasms suffered late last game.

The 6’2″ native of Moorhead, MN  has 22 points (7G-15A) in 65 games this year for the Barons.  Look for him in the bottom six tomorrow afternoon.
