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.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
