At the most, he could get a look in the off season after the Oilers shed some AHL and ECHL players. If I'm making a wager, it's that the most he gets offered by the Oilers is an AHL only contract for next season and a "let's see how you do".
If he were signed, the contract would begin next season.

He would sign a PTO to play with OKC for the remainder of this season after his WHL season ended.
