The Edmonton Oilers placed forwards Ryan Spooner and Ty Rattie on the waiver wire Monday, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Spooner was acquired by the Oilers from the New York Rangers in November in exchange for Ryan Strome, who Edmonton originally received from the New York Islanders in the Jordan Eberle deal in 2017. Spooner is on the books for this season and the next at a cap hit of $3.1 million. He has only two goals and an assist in 24 games with Edmonton.

Rattie began the season on the Oilers' top line alongside Connor McDavid but suffered an injury in mid-October and has been a frequent healthy scratch since his return. He's a pending restricted free agent carrying a cap hit of $800,000. Rattie has two goals and six assists in 29 contests.
