The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with forward Linus Omark on a one year contract.
Omark was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the 4th round (97th overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He laced up his skates for 65 NHL regular season games where he recorded 8 goals, 22 assists and 34PIM. A player with great hands and creativity, the Oilers were hopeful that he would pan out and be a star during his first stint with the club. Unfortunately, they were unable to reach a deal with their RFA, and there was not much room for Omark anyway.
Omark spent a one year stint with Zug of the Swiss League and had 69 points, good enough to finish first overall in the league.
