The Edmonton Oilers have signed its last RFA.
As first reported by TSN 1260's Dustin Nielson, the Edmonton Oilers have signed Kailer Yamamoto to a one-year extension worth $1.175 million.
Last season, Yamamoto put up eight goals and 13 assists with an additional assist in four playoff contests. Yamamoto made his presence known in a big way in 2019-20, scoring 11 goals and 26 points in 27 games after struggling to previously crack the lineup full time.
It'll be interesting to see if the Oilers can find a way to keep both Yamamoto and Jesse Puljujärvi during the next round of RFA signings, with both set for new deals next summer. Keeping both young forwards needs to be a priority to retain for Ken Holland to help maintain a solid forward core for the future of the franchise.
