I just got word from Wanye who’s on the road from Calgary: the Oil just signed Bobby Nilsson to a three-year deal worth $5.5 million total. Talk radio’s all over this one, I guess.
The 23-year-old has had a decent Oilers career: 74 GP 11-31-42.
Lowe’s really lockin’ ’em down…
** TSN has the skinny on both Gilbert and Nilsson here.
