Tucson Roadrunners General Manager Doug Soetaert announced today that the Edmonton Oilers have reassigned defenseman David Musil to the club for the remainder of the season. The Roadrunners also loaned forward Mark Olver to the Condors.

The 6-4, 207-pound Musil has appeared in 47 games for Bakersfield with four goals and 10 assists for 14 points a plus-7 rating. His four goals are a career high and his 14 points ties for his career best. The Calgary, Alberta native was originally drafted in the second round, #31 overall by the Oilers in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. In 2014-15 he appeared in four games with the Edmonton, posting a pair of assists.

“We were looking for a non-veteran, left-shot defenseman,” said Soetaert. “David brings solid experience at the professional and international levels. He will be a welcome addition to the blueline.”

Olver appeared in 41 games for the Roadrunners this season with six goals, 11 assists and 17 points. He was originally selected in the fifth round, #140 overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He appeared in 74 NHL games with the Avalanche over parts of three seasons.
