The Edmonton Oilers have signed Shawn Horcoff to a long term deal. It’s a long ranger, the Oiler website says he signed a 6-year extension. We don’t know the dollars so can’t really talk about whether or not it is good value, but Shawn Horcoff is a quality NHL center with size, skill and smarts.
And he was drafted by the Oilers, learned his trade under MacT and has delivered pure quality since the lockout. This is a very good day, and if the numbers are cap friendly it could be a great one.
UPDATE: Stauffer on the Team 1260 is saying 6 years/33 million for a 5.5 million per season cap hit.
