Oilers sign goalie Jeff Deslauriers
The Edmonton Oilers avoided going to arbitration with Jeff Deslauriers by signing the 26-year-old goaltender to a one-year contract.

Deslauriers played in his second NHL season in 2009-10, compiling a 16-28-4 record with a 3.26 GAA and .901 save percentage in 47 games.

The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder was given the starting job after veteran Nikolai Khabibulin went down with a back injury. Deslauriers put together a season-best five-game winning streak in December when he backstopped the Oilers to five consecutive road wins.

Deslauriers, a native of St-Jean-Richelieu, Que., played 10 games for Edmonton in 2008-09 with a 4-3-0 record, a 3.34 GAA and .901 save percentage. He also played in five games with the Springfield Falcons of the AHL and was 1-4-0.

Deslauriers played junior hockey with the Chicoutimi Sagueneens of the QMJHL from 2001-04. In that span he had a 67-64-8 record. He was drafted by Edmonton in the 2nd round (No. 31) in the 2002 Entry Draft.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
