EDMONTON – The Oilers have claimed Matt Fraser off waivers from the Bruins.

Edmonton adds some size and skill with the six-foot-one, 204-pound winger from Red Deer, Alta.

The 24-year-old Fraser has three goals in 24 games for Boston this season.

The Oilers placed forward Steve Pinizzotto on waivers while claiming Fraser.

Fraser is on a US$625,000, one-year contract.
