Bouchard, 23, had another strong season on the Oilers' blueline, recording his second consecutive 40+ point season. Although there was plenty of speculation that Bouchard could have been a target of an offer sheet this summer, it appears that ship has sailed and that the Oilers are in the clear.
The Oakville, Ontario native's health has been huge for the Oilers as he's only missed one game in the last two seasons. In 82 games this past season, Bouchard tallied 40 points (eight goals, 32 assists), 28 penalty minutes and was a plus-six. He followed that up with a fantastic Stanley Cup Playoff run, putting up 17 points in 12 games.

Today it appears that deal is done and will come in just shy of $4,000,000 per season.
