The Edmonton Oilers have signed free agent winger Josh Green to a 1-year, two-way contract. Green played a dozen games for the Anaheim Ducks last season, scoring no goals or assists.
In the AHL, he went 69, 15-31-46 with Syracuse.
This is Green’s second time around with the organization. He was part of the Roman Hamrlik return from Long Island (along with Eric Brewer and the pick that turned into Brad Winchester). Previous to that deal, he was sent by the LAK to NYI in a massive deal for Ziggy Palffy.
Green has played in the NHL for Los Angeles, New York Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, New York Rangers, Washington, Calgary, the Rangers again, Vancouver and Anaheim.
He’s a big power winger with a plus shot, but has battled injuries over the years. He has played 334 NHL games, scoring 35-39-74.
Green would appear likely to play the entire season in OKC.
