EDMONTON, AB - The newest Edmonton Oilers have selected their jersey numbers.
Forward Kyle Turris, who signed a two-year $3.3 million contract, will wear number 8, sticking with what he donned as a member of the Nashville Predators. He wore number 7 with the Ottawa Senators and number 91 with the Phoenix Coyotes.
Defenceman Tyson Barrie, who inked a one-year $3.75 million deal, has decided on number 22. He wore number 94 with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season, as well as number 41 then number 4 with the Colorado Avalanche.
Forward Alan Quine, who agreed to terms on a one-year $750,000 contract, will wear number 26. He donned number 89 with the Calgary Flames, as well as number 10 with the New York Islanders.
Between the pipes, goalie Anton Forsberg, who signed a one-year $700,000 deal, will sport number 33. He wore number 31 previously with the Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks and Columbus Blue Jackets, but that number hangs retired in the Rogers Place rafters thanks to the Hall of Fame career of Oilers legend Grant Fuhr.
