Oilers transfer Joensuu to SC Bern

The Edmonton Oilers have transferred winger Jesse Joensuu to SC Bern of the Swiss Elite League.

Joensuu had two goals and two assists in 20 games this season, logging just over 10 minutes per contest. But the 27-year-old was a healthy scratch the last five games after being placed on waivers by the Oilers.

Per the Edmonton Journal, Joensuu was never assigned to AHL Oklahoma City as he was apparently “considering his options.”

Joensuu is a pending unrestricted free agent. Fairly safe bet he’ll never play for the Oilers again.
