EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers goaltending picture is set.

The NHL team has signed 24-year-old goalie Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers to a two-year contract.

Drouin-Deslauriers spent last season with AHL Springfield and had a 26-23-5 record with a 2.90 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.

He's expected to battle Mathieu Garon and Dwayne Roloson for playing time next season.

"Jeff made some significant strides last season and now appears ready to challenge for a spot on our hockey club," Oilers VP Kevin Prendergast said in a statement. "With Jeff's addition, we are very comfortable with our goaltending situation."

Drouin-Deslauriers was a second-round draft choice by Edmonton in 2002 and has spent the last four seasons in the AHL.
