Oilers' Olivier Rodrigue: Poised to feature Monday
Rodrigue is set to defend the cage versus the Kraken on Monday, Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
While Rodrigue will get the starting nod for the first preseason contest, it's unlikely he will make the 23-man roster over the likes of Stuart Skinner, who figures to serve as the backup to Jack Campbell. Without a clear path to regular appearances, Rodrigue shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value this season.... See More ... See Less

Oilers' Olivier Rodrigue: Released from camp
Rodrigue has been released from Edmonton's training camp roster, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
The Oilers wanted Rodrigue to attend training camp because the team's development camp and fall rookie tournament were both cancelled due to COVID-19, but he was never expected to still be with the club for its qualifying round matchup with the Blackhawks.

Oilers' Olivier Rodrigue: Busy in loss to Flames prospects
Rodrigue stopped 40 of 42 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Flames' prospects.
The Oilers' rookies didn't help their 19-year-old goalie much, as only Evan Bouchard was able to get the puck behind Flames goalie Dustin Wolf. Rodrigue's strong play kept the Oilers in striking distance for a majority of the contest. Expect Rodrigue to spend another year with QMJHL Drummondville, where he posted a 2.80 GAA and an .895 save percentage over 142 games in the last three seasons. Rodrigue is likely three-plus years away from having an impact at the NHL level.... See More ... See Less
