Blue Jackets' Dillon Simpson: Lands on waiver wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Secures one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simpson signed a one-year contract with Edmonton on Sunday.

Simpson spent the majority of the 2016-17 season with AHL Bakersfield, where he tallied three goals and eight helpers in 53 outings. The defenseman did get to make his NHL debut last year -- appearing in three games in which he averaged 10:53 of ice time. The Oilers have some depth on their blue line which could make it difficult for the 24-year-old to secure regular minutes.

Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simpson was sent down to AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday.

Simpson was held off the scoresheet in his three appearances and will have to wait until his next call-up to resume his quest for his first NHL point. The defenseman has not added much offensively in the minors, either -- just one goal in 12 outings. Given the abundance of talented youngsters in Edmonton, it seems likely the Oilers will allow Simpson more time to develop with the Condors.

Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Promoted to parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simpson was recalled from AHL Bakersfield on Saturday.

The Oil placed Darnell Nurse (lower body) on injured reserve, necessitating the call-up for Simpson, who's still waiting to make his NHL debut. He's a left-shooting rearguard and has proven capable of setting up scores at hockey's lower levels, but it's been a bit of a trying campaign for the Edmonton native as he'd brushed twine only once in 12 games with Bakersfield ahead of the call-up.

Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Reassigned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simpson was sent down to the minors Friday.

Simpson's reassignment could mean that either Kris Russell (undisclosed) or Brandon Davidson (undisclosed) are nearing a return to game action. Simpson has been a healthy scratch since being called up Nov. 5 and will now return to the AHL, where he has one goal in seven outings.

Oilers' Dillon Simpson: Called up to big club Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers recalled Simpson from AHL Bakersfield on Saturday.

With Kris Russell sidelined with an undisclosed injury, the Oilers decided to bring Simpson up to the majors to provide additional defensive depth. Simpson, who will be in line to make his NHL debut, tallied 20 points and a plus-8 rating over 57 games for the Oilers' minor league affiliate last season. Although Simpson could one day land a more permanent role on an NHL roster, he may only be up with the big club until Russell returns from his ailment.
