Oilers Acquire LainNews: Kellan Lain was traded to the Oilers on Thursday in exchange for center Will Acton.

It's unclear if he'll receive an immediate promotion to the Oilers or head to their AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City.
Canucks Assign Lain To AHLNews: Kellan Lain was assigned to AHL Utica on Thursday.
