Edmonton Oilers sign veteran forward to incredible contract

The Edmonton Oilers are an extremely desirable team to play for. With both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl already under contract the Oilers are a perennial Stanley Cup contender. That ability to contend for a Cup is usual enough to entice veteran players to take a discount to play in the market.

That's exactly what happened today as veteran forward Derek Ryan signed a 2-year contract extension with the club.


The #Oilers have signed Derek Ryan to a two-year contract extension with an AAV of $900,000. The veteran forward scored 13 goals & 20 points in 80 games during the 2022-23 season.

With 13 goals and 20 points Ryan is a versatile player who provides depth scoring. Ryan plays in all situations and was a great fit for the Oilers bottom line.
