Denis Grebeshkov left for the Olympics a member of the Edmonton Oilers only to return to find out he has been dealt to the Nashville Predators for a second round draft pick in the 2010 draft. The 26-year-old defenseman, who represented Team Russia, has only notched 19 points in 47 games for the Oilers and a single point in the four games in the Olympics.
The Yaroslav native is now headed for his fourth NHL team having suited up for the Los Angeles Kings, New York Islanders and the aforementioned Oilers.
