Curtis Hamilton has been sent to the minors.

Hamilton had eight goals and 16 points in 43 AHL games in 2013-14. At least he got to participate in this year's training camp after missing the 2013 preseason due to a knee injury.

Curtis Hamilton has been seeing some action on the top line with Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins during training camp.

Hamilton was a second round selection, 48th overall in 2010 but training camp has been his bane as he was unable to show a lot during the 2013 lockout with its shortened camp and he missed all of last year's camp as he was recovering from off-season knee surgery. "Just getting the opportunity to play is huge," said Hamilton, who is fighting Jesse Joensuu, Kevin Westgarth and Ilro Parkarinen for the one remaining spot on the wing. "I understand there’s basically one spot open, and we’re all gunning for it. Ultimately, they may only keep one or two guys, so you really just have to make a good impression every day. As the year went on last year, I think it was the most comfortable I've been playing pro hockey. Later on, I got injured again, but I came back in time to play some playoff games, so coming into this camp, I’m more comfortable with the speed and pace and strength."

The Edmonton Oilers have sent Curtis Hamilton to AHL Oklahoma City.

Hamilton recently signed an entry-level contract with Edmonton. He had 26 goals and 82 points in 62 WHL games. Oklahoma City is currently in a playoff series against the Hamilton Bulldogs. "I probably won’t be in the lineup, with all the guys (the Barons) do have, but I’m going to be ready and I’m going to get a chance to experience the American Hockey League," he said. "It should be interesting to see how the guys handle things on and off the ice."
