EDMONTON OILERS SIGN DAVID MUSIL TO ONE-YEAR CONTRACT

David Musil has signed with the Edmonton Oilers. A $600K contract, He likely won't see much NHL time to start, spending the majority of this year with the Bakersfield Condors, but he's a legit prospect that the Oilers are hoping will take a step forward this year. If he does start with the Oilers, or is called up, Edmonton risks losing him on waivers.

Oilers Sign David Musil to 1-year contract.
Edmonton could have walked from his contract and it wouldn't have been a big surprise, but Musil is the type of defender who will be more a defense first and penalty killer type blue than anything else. The Oilers must think he has a chance to become a six/seven and play some special teams minutes, sliding up in the case of injury.

Musil is 23 years of age, six-foot-four and over 200 pounds. He's partially succeeding despite being slower in a game where speed is making defensmen adapt to a more mobile game. Musil was a second-round pick in the 2011 draft and has spent most of his time in the AHL. In 67 games, he scored 3 goals and 11 assists for 14 points.

There is potential there, but at this point, Musil is still a prospect.
