Edmonton Oilers release Seth Griffith for assignment to Bakersfield Condors

This morning, the Oilers announced via their social media that the team has waived (F) Seth Griffith for assignment to the Bakersfield Condors.

With the Bakersfield Condors training camp scheduled to start on Monday, I was wondering if we would have any roster changes ahead of tonight’s game against the Winnipeg Jets. At this point, the Oilers have made a handful of cuts at various positions, but with less than two weeks until opening night, I think it’s fair to assume the pace of those moves will start to pick up quickly. . Even though Griffith played pretty well during his tune-up time with the big club, he wasn’t going to break the opening night roster and it makes sense to bring him back to California. As for what comes next, the 29-year-old will look to build on a very solid campaign with the Condors which saw him register 30 goals and 80 points in 64 games played.

A fifth-round pick in 2012, Seth Griffith spent time with the Bruins, Maple Leafs, Panthers, Sabers and Jets organizations before finally settling with the Oilers/Condors for the start of the 2020 campaign- 21. So far, Griffith has only played one game with the Oilers — he was called up for the Dec. 18 game against Seattle when Jesse Puljujarvi got COVID — but I wonder if the great job he’s he makes in the AHL will give him a chance of some point. While there are probably a few guys ahead of him on the depth chart, the Oilers right side isn’t exactly on the talent slate and this could end up being the opportunity he needs. That is, of course, if he clears the disclaimers first. As always, we are waiting.
