Edmonton Oilers Looking to Move On From Newly Signed Veteran Winger

Published November 7, 2023 at 8:39

The Edmonton Oilers have not lived up to expectations so far this season. They cannot outscore their porous defensive play this season. On top of that, they are not killing penalties as well as last season, and the powerplay is not the lethal weapon it was last season.

Edmonton's 2023 off-season

The Oilers signed Connor Brown, Drake Caggiula, Lane Pederson, and Benjamin Gleason as UFAs during the 2023 off-season. Only Connor Brown, Connor McDavid's longtime friend, was expected to have an effect on the lineup out of those four.

To be fair to Brown, he had to have ACL surgery last season, after only appearing in four games for the Washington Capitals.

Brown's pay is $775,000. This is because he has a contract that states he will receive a $3,225,000 performance bonus after 10 games. He is currently sitting at nine games.

Will Brown soon be on the way out?

Edmonton expected production from Connor Brown, and so far have been disappointed with the results. He currently has zero points in nine games. Brown was injured in the match up against the Dallas Stars, playing in just over six minutes of ice time.

Brown has not played since that game and has missed practice as well. Will the Oilers waive him to not have to pay the bonus when he comes back from injury, or will they simply wait out the slump?
