Oilers re-sign Dubnyk, add Belle
The Edmonton Oilers signed a pair of former first-round picks late Tuesday, agreeing to new deals with restricted free-agent goaltender Devan Dubnyk and defenseman Shawn Belle.
The Edmonton Oilers signed a pair of former first-round picks late Tuesday, agreeing to new deals with restricted free-agent goaltender Devan Dubnyk and defenseman Shawn Belle.

Dubnyk, who the Oilers made the 14th pick of the 2004 Entry Draft, made his NHL debut last season, going 4-10-2 with a 3.57 goals-against average and .889 save percentage in 19 games. He split time with Jeff Deslauriers, but started the Oilers' last two regular-season games, stopping a combined 57 of 61 shots.

Belle, a 2003 first-round pick of the St. Louis Blues, had 19 points in 70 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs, the Montreal Canadiens top minor-league affiliate. In 11 NHL games with Minnesota and Montreal, the 25-year-old Edmonton native has 1 assist.
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.
