Oilers Won't Be Re-Signing Eager

News: Ben Eager won't be re-signed by the Oilers, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Ben Eager has never been able to crack the Oilers' lineup full-time and looks to be more of a career minor-leaguer. The Oilers have more than enough of those already, so he'll have to find work elsewhere.

Ben Eager

Oilers Reassign Eager

News: Ben Eager was reassigned to AHL Oklahoma City on Friday.
Analysis: With Taylor Hall checking out fine in his return to action Thursday, the Oilers will rid themselves of a couple of excess forwards who would benefit from more ice time in the minors. Ben Eager has appeared in seven games this season for the Oilers, scoring one point.

Ben Eager

Oilers Recall Eager

News: Ben Eager was recalled by the Oilers on Tuesday morning.
Analysis: Presumably, he'll slot into the lineup on the fourth line as a depth option with the Oilers facing the potential absence of Taylor Hall (knee) at least for Tuesday's game, while they have a few other forwards who were forced to miss practice Monday as well.

Ben Eager

Oilers' Eager Clears Waivers

News: Ben Eager cleared waivers on Thursday.
Analysis: He'll report to AHL Oklahoma City after he unsurprisingly went claimed after he was dumped by the Oilers on Wednesday. He could merit a call up at some point this season if injuries take their toll with the NHL club.

10/2/2013

Ben Eager, LW, EDM

Ben Eager

Oilers Waive Eager

News: Ben Eager was waived by the Oilers on Wednesday, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Ben Eager appeared in 14 games with the Oilers last season but was a healthy scratch in Tuesday's opener against the Jets. He's expected to clear waivers and report to AHL Oklahoma City.

Oilers Demote Eager

News: The Oilers reassigned Ben Eager to AHL Oklahoma City on Thursday after he cleared waivers.

Ben Eager

Oilers Place Eager On Waivers

Oilers Get Eager Back

News: Ben Eager (concussion) saw 6:37 worth of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: It was Ben Eager's first appearance since January 20, though the light-scoring winger is really only of note in PIM-driven formats.

2/7/2013

Ben Eager, LW, EDM

Ben Eager

Oilers' Eager To Play Either Saturday Or Sunday

News: Ben Eager (concussion) will return to game action either Saturday or Sunday, according to the Edmonton Journal.

Ben Eager, LW, EDM

Ben Eager

Oilers Place Eager On IR

News: Ben Eager has been placed on IR, Dan Tencer of CHED in Edmonton reports.
Analysis: As per usual, there is no timetable for Ben Eager's return, although the move should be retroactive to allow his activation once he's healthy enough to play again. Theo Peckham was activated to replace Eager on the Oilers' roster.

Oilers' Eager Diagnosed With Concussion

News: Ben Eager has been diagnosed with a concussion.
Analysis: Ben Eager needed stitches after a fight with Zack Kassian on Sunday, but it appears now that his injury is more serious than just the swelling that kept him out of Tuesday's game against the Sharks. We've seen concussions sideline players for long periods of time, so there is no timetable for his return yet.

News: Ben Eager will sit out Tuesday's game due to swelling around his eye, the Dan Tencer of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Eager (eye) Rested Monday

News: Ben Eager (eye) took a full day off Monday, Oilers' Radio Network's Dan Tencer reports.
Analysis: Ben Eager required stitches around his eye after a fight with Vancouver's Zack Kassian Sunday night. He rested Monday and the Oilers are hoping he can play Tuesday night against San Jose. Eager is far from a prolific scorer, but has had over 100 PIM in five of his NHL seasons.

Oilers' Eager: Assault Charges Upgraded

News: Ben Eager had his charges stemming from a bar fight last weekend upgraded Friday, reports the Toronto Sun.
Analysis: He and his brother were originally charged with threatening bodily harm, assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon after the Toronto bar fight, but police have upgraded the assault causing bodily harm to aggravated assault and they've added another assault charge. According to witnesses, the "weapon" in question may have been a chair.

Oilers' Eager In Trouble With The Law

News: Ben Eager was arrested following an incident with a door man in Toronto, according to the Edmonton Sun.
Analysis: Ben Eager's brother was also arrested in the incident. Apparently there was a fight that was captured on video. The charges stem from assault, assault with bodily harm, and assault with a weapon. Probably not the kind of headlines Edmonton was hoping for this week.

Eager Tops Oilers' PIM List

News: In Saturday's season finale against Vancouver, Ben Eager earned four penalty minutes, capping his season with a team-high 107 PIMs.
Analysis: Unlike some goons, who pad their totals with you-beat-me penalties such as holding and hooking, he earned these four minutes the old-fashioned way (cross-checking and roughing). Despite his meager total of 13 points this campaign, he'll be back in his enforcer role next year; the Oilers didn't hire him for his elegant passing and his deft skating.

Ben Eager, LW, EDM

Ben Eager

Oilers' Eager Returns Tuesday

News: Ben Eager (back) returned to the lineup Tuesday and picked up an assist against the Predators.
Analysis: Offense typically isn't the area where Ben Eager benefits fantasy owners, but he's back in the saddle for Edmonton if you need to deploy him down the stretch.

Oilers' Eager Still Sits Out

News: Ben Eager (back) still is recovering from a back injury, Dan Tencer of Inside Sports on 630 CHED reports.
Analysis: Ben Eager has been suffering from a dose of the flu followed by an injury in practice. These unfortunate events have kept him off the ice but this does not seem to be a major injury.

Oilers' Eager Leaves Practice Early

News: Ben Eager (back) left practice early Tuesday, according to the Oilers web site.

Ben Eager, LW, EDM

Ben Eager

Edmonton's Eager Active Monday

News: Ben Eager (flu) will play against San Jose on Monday, Oilers Radio Network's Dan Tencer reports.
Analysis: Ben Eager has only 11 points (seven goals) in 53 games this year, but he'll be there if you need him Monday.

3/9/2012

Ben Eager, LW, EDM Oilers' Eager Won't Play Saturday

Eager Likely Out For Edmonton

News: Ben Eager (flu) will likely miss Thursday's game against Montreal, EdmontonOilers.com reports.
Analysis: Although Edmonton will be without its enforcer Friday, Ben Eager's 11 points on the year indicate that his absence won't change much for fantasy leagues.

Zebras Nab Eager Twice In Edmonton's Win

News: Ben Eager was sent off for seven penalty minutes (roughing and fighting) in Edmonton's win over Detroit on Saturday night.
Analysis: He isn't in the game for his graceful skating or a delicate passing touch; his 79 PIMs lead the team. That being said, his trips to the sin bin come in bunches surrounded by long droughts, and right now he seems to be in a mood to mix it up. If you need help in the PIM category, you should consider picking him up, but be ready to drop him if he shows signs of another stretch of placidity.

Oilers' Eager Returns To Action

News: Ben Eager (back) returned to action Tuesday against Edmonton, going without a point in 8:53 of action.

Eager Out Tuesday For Edmonton

News: Ben Eager (back) will miss Tuesday's game against Vancouver, Oilers Radio Network's Dan Tencer reports.
