The Oilers have traded defenseman Ethan Bear to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Bear was chosen by the Edmonton Oilers in the fifth round (No. 124) of the 2015 NHL Draft. He played four seasons for Seattle of the Western Hockey League and signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Oilers on July 2, 2016. He made his NHL debut against the Nashville Predators on March 1, 2018 and scored his first NHL goal in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks on March 25.

Bear was sent to Bakersfield of the American Hockey League on Oct. 3, 2019 but was recalled the next day en route to his first full season in the NHL.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
