Oilers Add Some Meat In Jacques and Belle

The Edmonton Oilers have recalled JF Jacques and Shawn Belle from the Oklahoma City Barons.

Jacques, we all knew was going to happen (conditioning stint).

I guess for the most part, we did as well with Belle. I have been pumping his tires for weeks. Out of all the defencemen in OKC, Belle was the standout. Big, mean and can make a nice pass. Shawn Belle leads all AHL defensemen in assists (13) and points (15). All in the last 17 games.

Let's hope these guys can help this team be better. *fingers crossed*

ON A SIDE NOTE: Peckham is skating today so I don't see another defenceman being recalled at this time. The debate over Plante or Petry will continue.

IMO, the ranking of the Barons defence is as follows; Belle, Petry, Plante, Petiot, Chorney & Motin. I have talked to a few of the Barons insiders, and they say I'm not wrong with the ranking.

Oilers sign Shawn Belle

The Edmonton Journal today reported that the Oilers have signed D Shawn Belle to a One-year/Two-way deal worth 600,000/150,000.

Belle played for the Hamilton Bulldogs for the majority of last season, netting 19 points in 70 games in the regular season as well as 7 points in 19 playoff games. He also made two appearances for the Canadiens. In 311 career AHL games he has 13 goals and 45 assists. In 11 career NHL games he has 1 assist.

Belle should be expected to challenge for the #6 defenseman slot in Edmonton, but will make for a top defenseman in OKC.
