The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with LW Ryan Hamilton on a two-year deal.

On July 5, 2006 Hamilton was signed as a free agent by the Minnesota Wild. On January 21, 2009 he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Robbie Earl. During the 2011–12 season, he made his NHL debut with the Maple Leafs on March 23, 2012 in a 4-3 win against the New Jersey Devils, registering an assist.

Hamilton was named Marlies captain October 8, 2011 and he earned Most Valuable Player honours by collecting a hat-trick for the Western Conference team in the 2013 American Hockey League All-Star Game on January 28. Just like Will Acton earlier today, Hamilton re-unites with former Marlies coach Dallas Eakins, who was hired recently to become the head coach of the Edmonton Oilers.

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: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
