This shouldn’t come as a major surprise, but the Oilers have already inked their 2019 top pick Philip Broberg to an entry-level deal.
The Oilers had a fairly quiet first day of free agency on Canada Day, but don’t expect Ken Holland is packing it up for the summer just yet. There are still holes on the Oilers’ roster, particularly up front, left to fill with players who fall through the cracks.
Ken Holland is diving into the bargain bin, adding a familiar face in Tomas Jurco to a one-year contract. The deal will apparently be a shade over the league minimum at $750k.
According to our own Jason Gregor, the Edmonton Oilers have signed forward, Markus Granlund, to a one-year contract.
It isn’t July 1st just yet, but we’re already seeing some tentative free agent signings begin to flood in. According to Frank Seravalli, the Oilers will be inking veteran goalie Mike Smith to form a goaltending tandem with Mikko Koskinen next year.

It looks like Ken Holland is going to dip into the European free agent market again. A few weeks after inking Swedish winger Joakim Nygard to a one-year deal, a report from Switzerland indicates the Oilers are closing in on a deal with centre Gaëtan Haas of SC Bern.
