Signing Evan Bouchard was a matter of course for Edmonton Oilers. Big question is, will he make the team?

It was a matter of time before Edmonton Oilers announced the signing of first-round draft pick Evan Bouchard to a standard three-year entry level contract, and that happened today. No word on the full details as usual, but it is safe to assume he will have signed for the ELC maximum salary of $925,000, with potential bonuses apt to be in the $700 – 800 K range, based on contracts signed by the last three #10 overall draft picks, Mikko Rantanen (2015), Tyson Jost (2016) and Owen Tippett (2017

Edmonton Oilers sign Evan Bouchard to entry-level contract

According to the Edmonton Oilers’ Twitter account, the team took care of some housekeeping today by signing 10th overall pick, Evan Bouchard, to a three-year entry-level contract.

That said, seeing this news come up was still somewhat surprising for me considering that I never expected Bouchard to be available when it was the Oilers turn to mak

Tobias Rieder and his road traveled home

Tobias Rieder was a steal of a pick for the Edmonton Oilers when he was selected in the fourth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. He had just come off a season in which he notched 49 points in 65 games and played in both the U-20 and U-18 tournaments. The U-18 tournament saw him score three goals in three games alongside countryman and now-teammate Leon Draisaitl, who scored seven points in six games. Rieder returned to the Kitchener Rangers for his sophomore year where he broke out, scoring 4

Primary Scoring

Primary Scoring

Among the things we’re searching for this summer is a second scoring line. The No. 1 unit writes itself, and if that doesn’t work we can write another one around 97. It’s that second line, the one without McDavid, that’s the tough one. THE ATHLETIC! Give The Athletic as a gift or get it yourself and join the fun! Offer is here, less than $4 a month! I find myself reading both the hockey (Willis, Dellow, Pronman, et cetera) and the baseball coverage a lot, it’s a pure pleasure to v

Tuesday Morning Hot Links

Good morning, I’m serving them hot. The Oilers current cap situation leaves Nurse to a bridge deal, Jeff has the latest. (Copper&Blue) Kurt discusses Ryan Mantha as a prospect and talks about his eye injury. I for one, had no idea that this injury was that serious. He’s likely done. (Edmonton Journal) The Predators have signed Juuse Saros to a ridiculously team-friendly deal.

High/Low: The Top Six Wingers

Barring a shocking trade or a minor free agent signing, the Oilers roster we see now will be the same one we see come September. With minimal changes to the roster, it’s clear that the organization is banking on some best-case scenarios from players this year in order to return to the playoffs. Over the next few weeks, you’ll see me go through every player who should have an impact in the Oilers organization and try to guess what that players “ceiling” is, and also what their “floor
