Cougars get Marincin back from Oilers

Aaron VickersUncategorized1 Comment

The Edmonton Oilers have sent defenseman Martin Marincin to the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League.

The return of Marincin to the Cougars can be considered one of the bigger surprises of training camp. The Kosice, Slovakia native was drafted out of Europe and eligible to play with the Oklahoma City Barons, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Oilers.

The six-foot-four, 187-pound defenseman had an impressive rookie season in the WHL after being picked first overall in the 2010 CHL Import Draft. In 67 games, Marincin had 14 goals and 56 points in 67 games.

He was originally selected in the second round, 46th overall in 2010.

  1. Really surprised he is going back to junior. I would have thought going to the AHL would have been better. There didnt seem to be any comment from the oilers as to why this move either.
