EDMONTON, Alta. - Kevin Prendergast is the first casualty of the Edmonton Oilers' terrible season.

The team fired Prendergast, their assistant general manager and vice-president of hockey operations, Monday.

"We would like to thank Kevin and his family for their contribution to the Oilers organization over the past 20 years. We wish him all the very best in his future endeavours," GM Steve Tambellini said in a statement.
