EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to a three-year entry-level contract with centre Travis Ewanyk.

The contract was announced Friday.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
