More trades: Oilers send Marincin to Leafs, get Gryba from Sens

4 Comments

New Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli stayed busy on Day 2 of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft — shortly after acquiring Cam Talbot from New York, Chiarelli shipped out d-man Martin Marincin to Toronto, then acquired blueliner Eric Gryba from Ottawa.

The deals:

Marincin, a 23-year-old pending RFA, appeared in 41 games for Edmonton last year, scoring five points. The former second-round pick (46th overall, 2010) has split most of the last three seasons between the Oilers and their AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City.

Gryba, 27, heads to Edmonton with a more polished NHL resume and one year left on his two-year, $2.5 million deal. The Boston University product is coming off his best season, posting career highs in games (75) and points (12). He’ll be part of a new-look Oilers blueline next season, which will likely feature Griffin Reinhart — acquired from the Islanders yesterday — and Darnell Nurse, who could become a full-time NHLer next season.
