Edmonton Oilers send center Gilbert Brule back to the minors

He had played just two games in a Oiler uniform. From the Canadian Press-

The Edmonton Oilers assigned centre Gilbert Brule to the AHL’s Springfield Falcons on Friday.

Brule had no points in two games with Edmonton after being recalled from the Falcons on Dec. 5.

Brule, 21, had eight goals and four assists in 15 games with Springfield prior to his recall.

Brule, a 6th overall pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the the 2005 NHL draft, has had a far from impressive career so far. A center with 12 goals in 148 career games and with a -28 rating to boot, just isn’t cutting it. Right now Brule looks like a draft bust, but at age 21 may be able to redeem himself.
