The Oilers have traded defenceman Shawn Belle to the Colorado Avalanche for fellow D-man Kevin Montgomery.

Belle, who brings a lot of energy to his game, played five games for the Oilers this year and suited up for another 39 with Oilers farm team the Oklahoma City Barons.

He didn't score any points with the Oilers and was -2 on the ice in the +/- department.

Belle scored three goals and tallied 17 assists for the Barons.

Montgomery, 22, has suited up in 51 games this season with the Lake Erie Monsters in the AHL, recording two goals and 17 assists.
