General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with centre Ryan O’Marra on a one-year contract.

The Tokyo, Japan native was originally drafted by the New York Islanders in the 1st round, 15th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by Edmonton in 2007 with Robert Nilsson and a 1st round pick in exchange for Ryan Smyth
. In 175 AHL games he has 42 points (19G, 23A).
