Spokane native Kailer Yamamoto makes Edmonton's roster

Spokane Chiefs product Kailer Yamamoto has earned his shot with the Edmonton Oilers.

There is still a chance Yamamoto returns to the Chiefs organization at some point during the season, but Edmonton doesn't have to make that decision until Yamamoto has played nine games.
