Oilers Cuts from Thursday Sept 29

The Oilers assigned three players to Oklahoma City today.

Yann Danis G - Will have to clear waivers, which is expected tomorrow. Danis got into a half a game while the Oilers were busy putting Khabibulin and Dubnyk to the test, early and often. Something tells me Danis will get another shot this year with the Oilers. I don't think the Oilers' goaltending is as set in stone as a lot of people think it might be.

Colten Teubert D - Didn't get into a game because he got his nose caved in the first game of the rookie tourney. Its unfortunate that Teubert dealt with injury this preseason as I'm sure he was chomping at the bit to show the Oilers' brass what he had to offer. Teubert will have to continue his audition in OKC. Teubert may get a call if some of the current Oiler roughhousers on D struggle or get hurt.

Antti Tyrvainen LW - Had himself a decent preseason. The fact that he stuck around this long is a feather in his cap. I believe he has a 4th liner future with someone in the NHL if he sticks it out. May be back if some of the 4th liners on the Oilers stop being tough or get injured.
