The Edmonton Oilers organization called up seven players from the Bakersfield Condors in the AHL ahead of the second round of the playoffs.

Last night, the Vancouver Canucks clinhed their ticket to the second round by eliminating the Nashville Predators and will face the Oilers.


The series is set to start in the coming days and it promises to be exciting to watch. Both the Canucks and the Oilers have been among the best teams in the League for the whole season.


In the AHL, things haven't been going well for the Oilers' affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors. The team was eliminated by the Ontario Reign and it looks like all players from the roster with two-way contracts were called up to the NHL.

Lane Pederson, Adam Erne, Raphael Lavoie, Cam Dineen, Ben Gleason, Phil Kemp and Olivier Rodrigue all joined the Oilers.

They released this official statement, confirming the news:

"🔁 #Oilers roster moves 🔁

Lane Pederson, Adam Erne, Raphael Lavoie, Cam Dineen, Ben Gleason, Phil Kemp & Olivier Rodrigue have been recalled from the
@Condors"


Unless there are injuries in the Oilers' line up, it would be surprising to see any of them play a game in the playoffs.

The Oilers Vs. Canucks series is set to start on May 7th. Stay tuned for more updates.
