Oilers Reach Deal With Curtis Hamilton


The Edmonton Oilers have come to terms with 2010 second round pick Curtis Hamilton.

Here’s what Steve Tambellini and Stu MacGregor said about Curtis Hamilton after last year’s entry draft:

Forward Curtis Hamilton was Edmonton’s fourth pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft behind Taylor Hall, Tyler Pitlick and Martin Marincin.  Hamilton has spent the year with the WHL’s Saskatoon Blades compiling 82 points (26G-56A) in 62 regular season games.  Hamilton certainly is enjoying this season after bouncing back from an injury filled 2009-10, a season that saw him suit up for only 26 games and very likely hampered his overall draft position.

According to the Edmonton Journal, Hamilton has just been sent to OKC for their playoff push.  How’s that for a recommendation?  Here’s an entry level contract.  Now go help our AHL squad win the Calder.

There’s a fairly significant chance that in ten years, we could look back and see what a steal Curtis Hamilton was at number 48 in the draft.

However you slice it, if I can get me some of this in the next few years, I’ll take it.
