Oilers' Anders Nilsson: Sent to AHL Bakersfield

Nilsson was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday, Jason Gregor of the Edmonton Journal reports.

Nilsson's struggles in net this season (3.14 GAA, .901 save percentage) haven't done him any favors with the club, and he's now been sent to the AHL affiliate as a result. The 25-year-old Swede will likely rejoin the team again later in the campaign, while Laurent Brossoit was recalled to take his spot as the backup goaltender for the time being.
