Listening to CFRN radio in Edmonton, they’ve just made the comment on the air that “It is believed that the National Hockey League has informed the Edmonton Oilers that Penner is an Oiler.” However, they went on to insist there is NO confirmation of this information. Penner’s agent had not heard anything from the Ducks as of 2:05pm ET.
Update 2:43pm ET
In an on air interview, Penner’s agent Gerry Johannson has just explicitly confirmed that Penner’s rights have now been transferred to the Edmonton Oilers.
Update 2:52pm ET
The Oilers Get: LW Dustin Penner
Penner, 24, is coming off a rookie season in which he scored 29 goals and 45 points in 82 games, but he has a rare physical package that makes him an even more attractive addition.
