ROMAN HORAK RUMORS & GOSSIP

Horak makes Oilers’ debut on second line

Roman Horak’s test drive as an Edmonton Oilers’ forward will be in the fast lane. The farmhand forward will play left-wing with centre Sam Gagner and Jordan Eberle on a second line against the Coyotes in Phoenix on Tuesday (game time is 7 p.m.).

The “other” player in the Tim Erixon deal: Shane McColgan

When the Rangers sent Roman Horak and two second round picks to Calgary for Tim Erixon, the fifth round pick that came back with Erixon was a mere after thought for most. After all, the Rangers had just traded a bottom-six prospect and two second rounders for someone who would have gone in the top ten in the 2011 draft.
