The Edmonton Oilers have summoned Eric Gryba.

Gryba attended the Oilers' training camp on a tryout basis and while he fell just short of making the team, Edmonton did ink him to a two-way deal before sending him to the minors. It looks like that decision has already paid off because Edmonton needs another defenseman after Brandon Davidson suffered a lower-body injury that landed him on the injured reserve. Gryba had six points and 75 penalty minutes in 53 games with Edmonton last season.
