Enforcer added: Oilers claim MacIntyre off waivers

Steve MacIntyre

The Edmonton Oilers were in the market for a heavyweight, and they got one today.

The club announced Monday that it’s added Steve MacIntyre off waivers from Pittsburgh. The 33-year-old has played tough guy for the Oilers before, as you can see below:

Edmonton’s desire to add a protector no doubt increased Saturday after Vancouver’s Dale Weise took a run at Taylor Hall (video) in a preseason game. The Oilers-Canucks contest also saw Zack Kassian break Sam Gagner’s jaw with his stick.

Both Weise and Kassian are facing discipline from the NHL.

The Oilers and Canucks, by the way, face each other Saturday, Oct. 5, in Vancouver.
