General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with centre Mike Comrie on a one-year contract.

Comrie, originally drafted by Edmonton in the third round (91st overall) in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, rejoins the Oilers after having played here from 2000-2003. The 28-year-old has also played for the Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators. Comrie has posted 154 goals and 184 assists for 338 points in 525 games in the NHL.

Last season, Comrie started the year with the Islanders before being dealt to the Senators with Chris Campoli for Dean McAmmond and a 1st round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Comrie enjoyed one of his finest seasons with the Oilers when he scored a career-high 60 points in 2001-02.
