The Edmonton Oilers signed free agent left-winger Alexandre Giroux to a one-year contract Saturday.

Giroux, 29, spent most of the season last year with the AHL's Hershey Bears, collecting 103 points (50G, 50A) in 69 games. He also suited up for nine games with the Washington Capitals scoring once and adding two assists.

The 6-foot-3, 190 lbs left-winger was originally drafted in the 7th round, 213th overall by the Ottawa Senators in the 1999 Entry Draft. He played in his first NHL game as a New York Ranger in 2005-06 before signing with Washington.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
