The Edmonton Oilers have placed forward Ben Eager on waivers.

The six-foot-two, 236-pound Ottawa native has scored one goal and one assist in 14 games this season, his lone marker coming on the Oilers' just-completed nine-game road trip during a 5-1 win over the Dallas Stars.

Eager missed nine games early this season after suffering a concussion in a fight with Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian during the Oilers' season-opening game.
