Oilers Set to Announce Signing of Kris Versteeg

As per Marc Spector, the Edmonton Oilers and Kris Versteeg look like they've come to terms on an actual NHL contract.

This is a good move for Edmonton and means that Versteeg is back to almost one-hundred percent healthy after a small injury in preseason.

With the trading of Nail Yakupov, this pretty much sealed the deal for Versteeg. It will be interesting to see if Edmonton increases it depth at right wing with some of the moves today on the NHL waiver wire.

More to come as the news goes official.

  1. I suppose that means they've chosen him over parentau. I like versteeg but on a one year deal Idone go with parentau

    1. Still possible, but with Eberle, Versteeg, Kassian, Puljujarvi, Caggiula, Pitlick and Draisaitl all available at right wing Edmonton may be done.

  2. I was expecting a couple of other waivers today from Detroit. Don't Ryan Sproule and Xavier Ouelett need to either clear waivers or be on the roster. I don't see any room for them and/or Anthony Mantha
