Stanton was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Sunday. Stanton was recalled Friday to provide depth on the blue line after an upper-body injury to Adam Larsson, but the recently added Brandon Davidson will now assume this duty. Stanton is unlikely to make any sort of fantasy impact for the Oilers this season.
Stanton was recalled from AHL Bakersfield on Friday. Stanton was promoted after Adam Larsson (upper body) was placed on injured reserve. The 28-year-old Stanton has notched one helper, 14 PIM and a plus-1 rating in 11 minor-league games this season. The WHL product has never been a prolific scorer, so fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on him to start arbitrarily potting a bunch of goals.
Stanton was assigned to the AHL's Bakersfield Condors on Thursday. Stanton was called up Wednesday ahead of the Oilers' matchup with the Red Wings, but he did not see any ice time in the 6-2 win. He's expected to spend majority of the 2017-18 season with Bakersfield.
Stanton was called up from AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday. The Oilers defense is in freefall, having allowed an astounding 18 goals in the last three games, so this move is likely in an attempt to shake things up and give Stanton a chance to prove himself where the rest of the defensive corps cannot. The 28-year-old put up decent defensive numbers while playing regularly for the Canucks from 2013 to 2015, but has never been much of a scoring threat.
Stanton (foot) was waived by the Oilers on Tuesday with the purpose of assignment to AHL Bakersfield. This was the likeliest course of action for Stanton anyway and he will now have the opportunity to rehab his injury in the minors with the goal of taking another shot at the NHL roster once he is healthy enough. That could be easier said than done though, as it will probably require an injury to one of Edmonton's defensive guys.
