It is reportedly a two-way deal worth $800,000 if Omark sticks with the Oilers. The deal also included an $80,000 signing bonus.
The 23-year old Omark was selected in the fourth round, 97th overall, by the Oilers in the 2007 NHL Entry draft. He has spent the past season with Moscow Dynamo of the KHL, scoring 20 goals and adding 16 assists in 56 games. The Oilers remained busy on Monday as they also signed NCAA prospect Chris Vande Velde.
The 23-year old Vande Velde will report to the Oilers’ AHL affiliate in Springfield this weekend. The University of North Dakota product was chosen in the fourth round, 97th overall by the Oilers in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. In 43 games for the Fighting Sioux this season, the Moorhead, Minnesota native had 18 goals and 17 assists.
Good to hear that he signed a 2-way deal for Omark!
UPDATE: Added the Vande Velde signing.
