General Manager Steve Tambellini announced Friday that the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with forwards Gregory Stewart and Ryan O'Marra on one-year contracts.

Stewart has appeared in 26 career NHL games, collecting an assist and 48 penalty minutes. He was originally drafted by the Canadiens in the eighth round (No. 246) in the 2004 Entry Draft.

O’Marra was originally drafted by the New York Islanders in the first round (No. 15) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by Edmonton in 2007 with Robert Nilsson and a first-round pick in exchange for Ryan Smyth. In 175 AHL games he has 19 goals and 23 assists.
Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
