  • Blue Jackets' Dillon Simpson: Lands on waiver wire

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/25/18) Simpson was placed on waivers by the Blue Jackets on Monday, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    After signing a two-way deal with Columbus in the offseason, Simpson is expected to begin the year with AHL Cleveland, assuming he isn't claimed by another organization. The 25-year-old scored four goals and 18 points in 61 games for AHL Bakersfield last season but has only three NHL games on his resume -- all of them coming with the Oilers in 2016-17.

    Blue Jackets' Dillon Simpson: Secures two-way deal with Jackets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/18) Simpson signed a two-year, two-way deal with Columbus on Sunday.

    Simpson will play for a team other than the Oilers -- the squad that drafted him in 2011 -- for the first time of his career. The 25-year-old blueliner had 14 goals and 52 assists in four AHL seasons, so he doesn't project to be an immediate contributor with the Blue Jackets. Instead, expect Simpson to start with AHL Cleveland.

    Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Returned to minor-league affiliate

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/18) The Oilers assigned Simpson to AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday.

    The Oilers recalled forward Brad Malone from the minors on an emergency basis in a corresponding move, so they must be dealing with several injuries up front ahead of Thursday's game against the Senators. Simpson will return to AHL Bakersfield for the foreseeable future, where he's notched four goals and 17 points in 56 contests this campaign.

    Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Providing emergency reinforcement

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/18) Simpson was recalled on an emergency basis from AHL Bakersfield on Monday.

    The University of North Dakota product is a left-shooting defenseman who's likely being recalled due to the fact that fellow left-handed blueliners Andrej Sekera (undisclosed) and Oscar Klefbom (shoulder) are questionable and out, respectively, for Tuesday's road tilt against the Hurricanes. If Simpson's able to crack the Edmonton lineup, don't expect him to make much of a fantasy impact, as he's recorded just 65 points in 240 professional games.

    Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Put on waivers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/26/17) Simpson was waived by the Oilers on Tuesday.

    It may not seem like the best sign for Simpson that he was waived despite defenseman Andrej Sekera being off the ice with a significant knee injury. However, it's believed that the best is yet to come for the Oilers' 2011 fourth-rounder, who still needs to learn how to use his 6-foot-2, 197-pound frame effectively. Last year, he contributed a mere three goals and eight assists over 53 contests with AHL Bakersfield, and he probably could stand to fill out a bit to withstand the rigors of the NHL in the future.
