Winger Kevin Westgarth is hoping to ink a deal with the Edmonton Oilers.

Westgarth is in camp on a professional tryout but his experience on a young Oilers squad could be a help in garnering a spot on the roster. The enforcer is the son-in-law of former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher and Westgarth has won a Stanley Cup with the Kings in 2012. He will get plenty of penalty minutes and an occasional point if he manages to crack the Oilers lineup this season.

Kevin Westgarth wasted little time Saturday night seeking out Luke Gazdic for a return bout.

In their March 1st fight, Gazdic concussed Westgarth with a hook that sidelined him for 10 days. After Saturday's fisticuffs the two tough guys acknowledged each other with respect and were seen chatting in the penalty box. We hope you anticipated this tussle if you needed to boost your penalty minute totals.

Kevin Westgarth found the back of the net in Calgary's 3-2 loss on Monday.

Westgarth took the opening faceoff and then immediately got into a fight. He now has a goal and 32 penalty minutes in 23 games in 2013-14.

Acquiring Kevin Westgarth on Monday is part of Calgary Flames president Brian Burke's plan to make the team tougher.
