The Edmonton Oilers’ future got a little bit brighter today now that the team announced they’ve signed their 2009 first round pick Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson to a three-year contract. Understandably so, Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini is excited about the Oilers future.
“This is an exciting day for the Oilers organization,” said Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini in a news release. “In signing his first NHL contract, Magnus has demonstrated through his junior and pro career with Team Sweden that he is an explosive player who exhibits great determination going to the net. We look forward to seeing him at his first NHL training camp this fall.”
