The Oilers signed Taylor Beck to a one-year contract.
Beck, 25, played the majority of last season in the AHL, where he recorded 33 points (16G / 17A) in 46 games with Bridgeport. He played just two games with the Islanders and has just 23 points (11G / 12A) in 87 career NHL games.
The Oilers have signed Mark Fraser to a one-year, two-way contract.
Fraser spent all of 2015-16 in the AHL with Binghamton, where he had two goals, five assists and 136 PIMS in 60 games. He has 219 games of NHL experience with the Devils, Maple Leafs and Oilers. He returns to Edmonton, where he had one goal in 23 games back in 2013-14.
The Oilers have signed Jonas Gustavsson to a one-year deal worth $800K.
Gustavsson, 31, appeared in 24 games with the Bruins last season, posting an 11-9-1 record, 2.72 GAA and .908 SV%. When he came to the NHL it was believed he had starter potential, but he has turned into a career backup and this season he will play behind Cam Talbot in Edmonton.
The Oilers have signed Milan Lucic to a seven-year deal worth $42 million ($6.0M AAV).
Lucic, 28, spent the first nine seasons of his NHL career with the Bruins and the Kings, tallying a total of 159 goals and 238 assists (397 points) in 647 career games. He has been a reliable Fantasy asset, who has averaged around 20 goals and 30 assists per 82 games over the last eight years. He is a great source of hits and PIMS and with a new-found spot next to Connor McDavid, Lucic could be in for a huge 2016-17 fantasy season.
The Oilers have acquired Adam Larsson from the Devils for Taylor Hall.
Larsson, 23, was the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, but has yet to develop into the premiere two-way defenseman that he was expected to be. However, at just 23-years-old he still has a lot of years to become the top-pairing defenseman that the Oilers are hoping they just acquired. He had 18 points (3G / 15A) in 82 games with the Devils last season.
The Oilers signed Iiro Pakarinen to a one-year contract worth $725K.
Pakarinen, 24, spent the majority of the year with the Oilers, where he scored five goals with eight assists (13 points) in 63 games. During his brief time in Bakersfield (AHL) he had three points (1G / 2A) in four games.
Talbot allowed two goals on 27 shots in the Oilers win over the Canucks in the final game at Rexall Place. Talbot has gone 21-27-4 with a 2.55 GAA and .917 SV% in his first season with the Oilers. Tonight he faces the Canucks again—he is 2-0-1 with a 1.31 GAA and .956 SV% in three starts vs. Vancouver this season.
Talbot surrendered three goals on 26 shots in the Oilers win in San Jose on Thursday. Laurent Brossoit started Saturday, so Talbot will go tonight vs. the Ducks. Talbot has won three of his last four starts while posting a 2.52 GAA, .919 SV% and one shutout. The 28-year-old has gone 0-2-1 with a 2.01 GAA and .939 SV% in three starts against Anaheim this season.
