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.
