Old news now, but I like to keep a post up for posterity’s sake and for comment posting…
The Edmonton Oilers signed “Teddy” Peckham to a 1-year deal reportedly worth $1.075M, according to TSN’s Ryan Rishaug.
This is a very good signing. The Oilers get him for cheap. It’s a short deal because obviously Peckham and his agent want them to be able to prove that last year’s season by Peckham wasn’t an anomaly. Look for a good season from #49.
The Oilers have also signed goaltender Yann Danis. Danis played 31 games for Khabarovsk Amur in 2010/11. He had short stints in New York (Islanders), New Jersey and Montreal. However, Danis spent most of his time in the minor leagues in Hamilton since being signed as a free agent by Montreal in 2004. I would have to assume that Danis is being added for the Barons club, and not the big club.
