The Pipeline Show has learned that Oiler hopeful Kurtis Mucha has been, or will soon be, sent back to the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL.
Dean Millard tells me that the as yet unannounced move will be made official very soon and that Mucha will rejoin his WHL squad in time for their next game this Friday in Tri-City.
Mucha was a free agent invite to Oilers rookie camp, earned an extended look at main camp and now hopes to be signed by Edmonton. The Oilers have an exclusive window to negotiate a deal with the goalie which expires on Sept 30th.
This leaves the Oilers with a trio of goalies remaining in camp. Free agent Aaron Sorochan was quietly sent to Springfield over the weekend.
