Solid signing for Edmonton. I think he has potential to be a really solid 3rd pairing guy for the next couple seasons and he certainly has more room to grow. Edmonton's D core is only getting better

Oilers got a gem? He's inconsistent but can be good at times

Good depth signing for Edmonton. If he becomes better than a #6 defender, that contract instantly becomes a steal.

Can't go wrong with this contract. Should be a staple 3rd pairing guy for the Oilers for the next 2 years

Wasn't it $850K? Chris Johnston reported that and CapFriendly retweeted

Edmonton has a good, cheap, young D that hasn't been traded to Pittsburgh yet.

Gotta give props to Ken Holland for getting the extra year. Hiring him was the best management decision this team has made in a generation.

Okay... I'm not sure how they got him to sign for this little. Nice work, EDM!

Amazing that Edmonton hit on all 3 defensemen drafted in the middle rounds in 2015:

4th round, 117th overall: Caleb Jones
5th round, 124th overall: Ethan Bear
6th round, 154th overall: John Marino

Now imagine if Chiarelli HADN'T traded #16 (Mat Barzal), #33 (Mitchell Stephens, but Dermott, Aho and Carlo were available), #57 (Jonas Siegenthaler) and three 3rd round picks that haven't turned into anything of note. That would have been a dynasty right there.

The bar was actually underground when Chia was fired, but Holland at least has the team on the right track. EDM should/could be a legit Cup contender in a couple years. Especially if their D prospects develop well.

Young bottom pairing defender for cheap. Good upside on this deal as well as he seems to be steadily improving at least at the AHL level.
