Edmonton has made a ripple in the free agent pool in signing tough customer Ben Eager to a three year deal.
A first round pick back in 2002, Eager spent time with the Thrashers and the San Jose Sharks last year before agreeing to a three year deal with the Oilers. In 68 games combined, Eager compiled 7 goals and ten assists for seventeen points.
Ben Eager will be making $1M, $1.1M, and $1.2M in his three seasons in Edmonton. He made quite an impression last year in the playoffs with San Jose.
He’s going to have plenty of chances to irritate the Canucks come October.
