Oilers draft Frederik Gauthier 13th Overall

Frederik is a big body forward that adds to our already great Offensive core.

We shipped off 3 different players to various team for Picks at the Draft:

Ben Eager (28 Years Old, 4th Line Forward, 74 Overall)

Chicago's 2014 3rd Round Pick

Shawn Horcoff (34 Years Old, 3rd Line CHK FWD)

Dallas' 2nd Round Pick (53rd Overall)

Ladislav Smid (27 Years Old, Top 6 Defenceman, 80 Overall)

Washington's 2014 2nd Round Pick
Washington's 2014 3rd Round Pick
Washington's 2014 7th Round Pick

Alot of these deals were made because we had no room for these players and we didn't exactly love there current contracts. We thank Shawn for his many years of services and Laddy for his "Iron-Man" work ethnic. We also thank Ben. Best of luck with your new Clubs.

Notable Selections

1st Round - 13th Overall - Forward - Frederik Gauthier - 4 Stars
2nd Round - 45th Overall - Defenceman - Joonas Valkonen - 3 1/2 Stars
2nd Round - 53rd Overall - Forward - Matej Beran - 3 1/2 Stars
5th Round - 133rd Overall - Forward - Danny Desrochers - 3 1/2 Stars
5th Round - 146th Overall - Goaltender - Justin Schrors - 3 1/2 Stars


Nikolai Khabibulin - 796GP, 330 wins, 341 losses, 45 shutouts

We thank Nik for his services. He was not only a great player but a great mentor and developer for Goalie Devan Dubnyk amongst others.


Teemu Hartikainen - 2 Years - $1,200,000
Magnus Paajarvi - 3 Years - $1,500,000
Sam Gagner - 2 Years - $1,800,000
Ron Hainsey - 3 Years - $4,400,000
Ryan Whitney - 3 Years - $4,800,000

Free Agent Signings

Alex Plante -1 Year - $1,200,000
Luke Adam - 2 Years - $1,205,000
Anton Khudobin -1 Year - $1,400,000
Manny Malholtra - 2 Years - $2,000,000
David Clarkson - 1 Year - $2,800,000

Alex was an RFA for us, we agreed to a contract in Free Agency. We also sent an Offer Sheet to Buffalo's Luke Adam for a 2 Year Deal, with no Draft Picks at stake. And Buffalo didn't match. Luke is 23, 76 Overall ('4th Line Forward') with 3 1/2 Stars of potential. He is a good kid.


Niko Hovinen (25 Years Old, Starting Goalie, 82 Overall, 3 1/2 Stars)

New Jersey's 2014 1st Round Pick

We weren't going to pay $4,000,000+ for what Niko was asking. Espeically since he is unproven, with only 1 AHL season under his belt for us. It would be a different story if Niko was our only Goalie but we have Devan Dubnyk. We're hoping New Jersey isn't a good team next year and that is a good pick. We'll see.

Theo Peckham (25 Years Old, Top 4 Defenceman, 81 Overall, 3 1/2 Stars)

Rasmus Ristolainen (18 Years Old, 4 Stars)
Boston's 2014 3rd Round Pick

Theo was asking for to much for our liking, for the type of player we saw him as. We got a good prospect back in Rasmus and Theo is going to be a good fit in Boston he fits there style of Defence.

Rosters coming later.
