In a significant roster decision, the Edmonton Oilers announced today that they have placed forward Adam Erne on waivers with the intention of reassigning him to their AHL affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors. Erne had previously earned a one-year contract worth $775,000 after a successful PTO (Professional Tryout) with the Oilers during the offseason.

A Promising Talent for the Oilers Emerges

But what prompted the Oilers to send Erne down to the AHL? A noteworthy development is currently unfolding in the NHL. Raphael Lavoie, who is currently playing for the Bakersfield Condors, has been named the Player of the Week in the AHL.

Lavoie's exceptional performance includes notching four goals and providing three assists, accumulating seven points in just five games played.

However, it now appears that the Oilers have chosen to place Adam Erne on waivers, potentially making way for the promising talent of Rafael Lavoie.

This decision has sparked considerable excitement among Oilers fans who eagerly anticipate witnessing Lavoie's skills showcased at the NHL level.
