EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -The Oilers say they have re-signed center Gilbert Brule.
Brule, who had 17 goals and 20 assists in 65 games with the Oilers last season, agreed to terms Tuesday on a two-year contract, the Oilers say.
"Gilbert made a big step last year in his development," general manager Steve Tambellini said in a statement. "We are excited to have him here in Edmonton and look forward to his continued contribution to the team."
Brule was acquired from Columbus for Raffi Torres in July 2008.
In 222 career NHL games, Brule has 31 goals and 41 assists.
