The Edmonton Oilers announced on Tuesday that the club has hired Tyler Dellow to consult with Hockey Operations.

Dellow is a well-known hockey blogger and pioneer in hockey analytics who generates discussion on all aspects of the game on the Twitter handle @mc79hockey.

His website at mc79hockey.com went dark on Monday night - presumably in anticipation of the announcement.

The hiring comes two weeks after the Toronto Maple Leafs hired 28-year-old Kyle Dubas, who also embraces advanced statistics, as the team's new assistant GM.
