Kris Versteeg has been removed from the top line of Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau.

It appears Alex Chiasson has taken Versteeg's role. Instead, Versteeg is now on the fourth line with Matt Stajan and Matthew Tkachuk. That might not last for very long though, so take that all with a grain of salt when trying to determine each player's value. The main takeaway is that it might not be a great idea to use Versteeg on Thursday at least.

Versteeg signed with the Flames on Tuesday and he is slated to play on the top line against Edmonton. He skated with the Oilers at training camp on a professional tryout prior to deciding to play for Calgary, so he may hear some boos Wednesday night.

Kris Versteeg has signed a one-year deal worth $950,000 with the Calgary Flames.

Edmonton did offer him a contract, but he rejected it. Versteeg said that getting the chance to play on a nightly basis is a big reason why he decided to go with the Flames. He could get a chance to play on the top line.

According to sources, Kris Versteeg will agree to a one-year contract worth less than $1 million with the Calgary Flames.

Kris Versteeg (lower body) was wearing a no-contact jersey during Friday's practice.

We'll have to wait to see if Versteeg's injury threatens his availability for the regular season. He has been attending the Oilers' training camp on a tryout basis, so there's no guarantee that he'll be with the team at the start of the season either way. Still, if he is healthy, it wouldn't be surprising to see Edmonton sign him and use Versteeg in a third-line role.
Oct 7 - 2:38 PM

Kris Versteeg should get plenty of work over the course of the preseason.

"We're going to play him a lot to see what he can do. We've admired his game so far," Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. Versteeg agreed to join Edmonton's training camp on a tryout basis. He has the potential to be a pretty good bottom-six forward for the Oilers and it wouldn't surprise us if they end up signing him.
Sep 30 - 4:07 PM

Kris Versteeg is thrilled with his opportunity to play in Edmonton.

Versteeg is on a PTO and has been a solid NHL veteran for the past nine seasons. He played for Carolina and Los Angeles last season and had 38 points so his offense is good enough to see third line time. "He’s not a one-tool player when it comes to position and that’s a valuable thing," said head coach Todd McLellan. "If you have the ability to move and you’re comfortable doing it and willing to do it, it certainly enhances your chances. Versteeg is a veteran player, he’s won Stanley Cups he’s been on some really good teams and some developing teams and he tends to have an impact wherever he goes. You have to find a way to leave a mark on the game every night. Veteran players, the smart ones that last a long time, they can do that. We think he’s one of those players. We think he can challenge for a spot." Chances are that Versteeg will make the Oilers who need a veteran presence in the locker room as well as on the ice. Look for 35-40 points.

Kris Versteeg's professional tryout with the Edmonton Oilers is official now.

After nearly playing in Europe, Versteeg will compete at training camp for a spot on the Oilers. He picked up 11 goals and 33 points in 63 games with Carolina last season prior to finishing the year with the Los Angeles Kings, where he had five points in 14 outings.

Sep 5 - 4:55 PM

Kris Versteeg's move to Europe for next season appears to be final.

SC Bern of the National League A has announced that he will join the team on a one-year contract. It's surprising that Versteeg won't be playing in North America in 2016-17. In 550 career NHL contests, the 30-year-old forward has generated 131 goals and 313 points.
Jul 25 - 9:32 AM

Kris Versteeg will reportedly sign with Switzerland’s Bern in the near future.

It will be interesting if that does happen given that Versteeg is a pretty established player in the NHL. He might not have been in line for a particularly lucrative deal, but it would be surprising if it turned out that he didn't have any NHL offers on the table. He scored 15 goals and 38 points in 77 games with the Carolina Hurricanes and Los Angeles Kings in 2015-16.
