The Edmonton Oilers have recalled forward Brad Malone from the AHL’s Bakersfield Condors. The team has also announced that forward Drake Caggiula has also been placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury.

Malone has scored two goals and three points in three games with the Condors this season. He’s expected to slot into the lineup for Caggiula. Malone’s recall may come as a surprise to some Oilers fans who were expecting former 4th overall pick Jesse Puljujarvi to be the team’s first call up of the 2017-18 season.
