Oilers return Nurse to GreyhoundsWednesday, September 25, 2013 by: Brad Coccimiglio
The Soo Greyhounds received some good news on Wednesday.
Defenceman and team captain Darnell Nurse has been returned to the team by the Edmonton Oilers.
The Oilers made the move following their exhibition game Tuesday night against the New York Rangers.
“If anyone tells you it feels good to get cut, they’re probably lying to you,” Nurse told the Oilers official website. “It sucks. There’s nothing fun about it but (the Oilers) have the best plan for me and my development and I’m going to go back and dominate my league and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to play in the World Juniors.”
Nurse was one of four players reassigned on Tuesday night. The other three – Taylor Fedun, Tyler Pitlick, and Anton Lander – were all assigned to the Oklahoma City Barons of the American League.
