Syracuse Crunch Defenseman Evan Oberg Headed to Chicago

The Chicago Wolves, the AHL affiliate of the St. Louis Blues, are reporting that they have added defenseman Evan Oberg to their roster.

Many Tampa Bay Lightning fans have come to lovingly referring to him as Yo-Yoberg on account of the amount of times he was recalled to and from the main roster in the 2011-12 season.

Oberg suited up for a total of 56 regular season games last season with the Syracuse Crunch. During that time, he scored 9 assists and a total of 20 penalty minutes. He also participated in 4 of the post-season efforts made by the Crunch during the 2013 Calder Cup Playoffs.

The Forestburg, Alberta native was also a part of the 2012 Norfolk Admirals that defeated the Toronto Marlies for the Calder Cup. While with the Admirals, Oberg played 42 regular season games, scoring 7 goals and 16 assists for a total of 23 points. During the post-season run for the Admirals, he added an additional 18 games. In those 18 games, he added another 2 goals and 8 assists for an additional 10 points to his season totals.

In accordance with Chicago Wolves team policy, the terms of the deal with Oberg were not made public.

We here at Bolts By The Bay wish Evan Oberg well as he starts his journey with the Chicago Wolves. We will certainly miss you here in the Bolts Nation.
