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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
