ALEX PLANTE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Alex Plante Leaves North America For Dornbirner EC by   Steven Ellis

Alex Plante, who was an Edmonton Oilers prospect, has signed with Austrian club Dornbirner EC for the upcoming campaign. Plante was selected by the Edmonton Oilers 15th overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. The Oilers signed Plante to a three-year contract following the season. He began his professional career in 2009–10 with Edmonton’s top minor league affiliate, the Springfield...

And Then There Was One

Well, one RFA that is. With the contract extensions signed for defenceman Alex Plante and centreman Chris VandeVelde Thursday morning, the Oilers only have the much talked about Linus Omark left to sign. Or move. But the suggestion that this team may be done making moves couldn’t possibly be an accurate reflection of the state of the team. Whether or not moves actually come through...

OKC sends three to the All-Star Game

Phil Cornet, Alex Plante and Yann Danis have enjoyed solid seasons so far in the AHL with the OKC Barons. All three will represent the Barons at this year's All-Star game. Cornet would have to be considered the biggest surprise, after all it was uncertain what role he'd play in the organization this season. Plante has had his best season in the AHL, and his last year and...

Weise hit on Plante - no suspension.

This is the hit that Vancouver forward Dale Weise put on Edmonton defenseman Alex Plante. The NHL has ruled that this was a shoulder to shoulder hit, and I concur.

Asked about the hit by Vancouver forward Dale Weise on Edmonton d-man Alex Plante in...

(Last Chance for) Hearts of Stone

As the reality of another lost season grips fans of the Edmonton Oilers, the time has come to talk of "next year": the draft, the men who offer hope and finally a defensive pairing worthy of the Oildrop. I've long since given up on hoping for some kind of grand intervention by Oilers management for this season. Ryan Whitney's in real trouble, things are unlikely...

#21-#30: The Rest

Despite having his finest AHL season, the clock is ticking on Alex Plante. He's a few months away from being waiver eligible, and his chances of being exposed are high; what's more, interest is unlikely to be close to Taylor Chorney level. Alex Plante's mobility is a major item.#21: D Alex Plante A solid year in OKC so far (his numbers suggest Plante has been their best...

Tales of the Unexpected

Alex Plante got sent down today, no big deal since the big league team doesn't play for a few days. However, I checked out twitter this afternoon and saw this from Mark Spector:Based on the stats and reading about the OKC Barons and how they run their blue, Teubert would have been the better choice. We talked about it here. There were vague rumors about Teubert actually being...
