EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have signed defenceman Brad Hunt and forward Andrew Miller to one-year contracts.

Hunt appeared in 62 games last season with the American Hockey League's Oklahoma City Barons. The 26-year-old led all Barons defencemen in scoring, posting 51 points (19 goals, 32 assists) and 18 penalty minutes.

The five-foot-nine, 187-pound blue-liner from Ridge Meadows, B.C., also played in 11 games with the Oilers last season, recording one goal and two assists.

Miller, 26, played in 63 games with the Barons last season, leading the team in goals (27) and points (60).

The Bloomfield Hills, Mich., native appeared in nine games with the Oilers, putting up a goal and five assists. Miller became the first Oiler to score his first NHL goal on a penalty shot, and the first player in the NHL to do so since Jay McClement did it with St. Louis on October 11th, 2005.

The five-foot-10, 181-pound winger has recorded 94 points and 30 penalty minutes in 115 career AHL games.
