The Edmonton Oilers on Monday re-signed restricted free-agent defenseman Theo Peckham to a one-year contract. The Edmonton Sun reports it is worth $1.075 million.

Peckham, a third-round pick (No. 75) by the Oilers in the 2006 NHL Draft, had a goal and a pair of assists along with 80 penalty minutes in 54 games last season. He has four goals, 17 points and 382 PIM in 156 career games in parts of four seasons.

He was one of seven restricted free agents to receive qualifying offers from the Oilers after also making $1.075 million last season, according to CapGeek.

"It's a relief," he told the team's website. "I understood I was coming off not the greatest year, so -- it wasn't necessarily 'take what you can get,' but both sides are happy. There was a little discussion back and forth, but I think for the most part it worked out best for both sides."

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
