Taylor Hall has signed with the Oilers, as per Edmonton Journal’s Joanne Ireland:
The Oilers have called a news conference to announce the three-year deal. It is expected to equal the entry-level deal that John Tavares signed with the New York Islanders last year.
His base salary was $900,000 US each season, with several performance bonuses.
Hall, who was at the Edmonton Eskimos season opener on Sunday, will be at the Oilers prospect camp, which gets underway on Tuesday.
The 18-year-old winger told The Journal’s Dan Barnes that he expected to spend some of his signing bonus on a new car. He figured some new clothes might also be on the list.
