O'Marra, selected by the Isles with the 15th overall pick in 2005, was traded to
Edmonton in the Ryan Smyth deal.
O'Marra picked up an assist in his first NHL game of this season and the 4th of
his career. Robert Nlsson has played the most NHL games of the pieces sent to
Edmonton, but of course he is playing in the KHL this season.
The Oilers also acquired the 15th pick in the 2007 draft as part of the deal.
They selected Alex Plante, a defenseman, with that pick. Plante has also played
in 4 NHL games (all last season) and is currently in Oklahoma City.
