  • Oilers' Ethan Bear: Bumped down for Russell activation

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/18) Bear was sent down to AHL Bakersfield on Saturday.

    This move was made in order to activate veteran Kris Russell (undisclosed) from injured reserve ahead of Saturday's game against the Devils in Sweden. It's worth stashing Bear in deeper leagues considering he's still in line for an expanded role after notching four points over 18 games as a first-year defenseman in 2017-18.

    Oilers' Ethan Bear: Returned to Bakersfield

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/2/18) Bear was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday.

    It was initially thought that Bear would crack the Opening Night roster in the wake of an Achilles injury to Andrej Sekera, but the Oilers just inked veteran Jason Garrison to a one-year contract to hold down the fort on the bottom pair. Bear still holds promise as a puck-moving defenseman who averaged close to a half-point per game with the AHL's Condors last season.

    Oilers' Ethan Bear: Could see expanded role in 2018-19

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/21/18) Bear could be called upon to help fill in for Andrej Sekera (Achilles) throughout much of the 2018-19 season, the National Post reports.

    According to the report, it is likely Sekera will miss at least the first 60 games of the season on long-term injured reserve. Like Sekera, Bear is talented offensively. Last season, the now 21-year-old defenseman logged 18 points (six goals, 12 assists) in 37 games for AHL Bakersfield. If he continues to show improvement entering his second season as a pro, Bear could earn a role with the Oilers this season.

    Oilers' Ethan Bear: Sent back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/18) Bear was returned to AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday.

    Bear logged 18 games for the Oilers at the end of the season, in which he tallied one goal, three helpers and 28 blocks. The blueliner averaged 18:38 of ice time, including 1:50 with the man advantage. With Edmonton out of the playoffs, the Saskatchewan native will link up with the Condors in order to continue playing competitive hockey this year. Given the Oilers have four defensemen potentially hitting free agency, Bear could find himself with a more consistent role in 2018-19.

    Oilers' Ethan Bear: Scores first goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/18) Bear scored a goal and notched an assist in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Anaheim.

    The 20-year-old blueliner has been highly touted for his offensive upside (16 points in 34 games in the AHL before getting the call-up) and he flashed a bit of that in the contest -- netting his first goal complemented with an assist. With four points in 13 games in 2017-18, Bear continues to breathe life into a dismal year for Edmonton -- he has even been seeing time on the first power-play unit recently. The young defenseman should be a focal point for the Oilers' future and remains on the radar in dynasty leagues moving forward.
