Oilers tinker on the defensive: Demers comes, Skinner extends

Coming off a season filled with inconsistency on the defensive side of the ice, the Edmonton Oilers have made two changes to their roster that could help shore up their defense. On Sunday and Monday, the oilers signed veteran defense man Jason Defers, as well as extending backup goaltender Mike Smith's contract. Read on to find out how these moves may help the team address its defensive woes.

In the days after the unneeded 3: 4 home defeat beverage DRAISAITL milestone versus Division-Lichtlicht Anaheim Ducks, the Edmonton Oilers revealed 2 workers decisions. Defender Jason Defers signed a contract up until completion of the season. In addition, local hero Stuart Skinner extended his agreement that expires at the end of the season too soon till 2026.

Is Oilers fan skinner edmonton's solution in the goal?

Skinner, born in Edmonton, who grew up as an Oilers fan, signed a brand-new agreement up until 2026 and earns $2.6 million in the next 3 seasons from 2023 per season. The 24-year-old goalkeeper was in fact ranked as the new primary for a total of $25 million (5 years, $5 million each year) as a brand-new primary.


While the 30-year-old newbie with a catch rate of only 87.5 percent and 4.04 goals per game has up until now compromised enormously, Skinner (91.5 percent catch quota, just 2.83 objectives per game) has actually been significantly more strong. Therefore, it is not surprising that Skinner can currently look at 19 seasonal missions, on the other hand, Campbell only on their 14.

Defers as an alternative for weakening Bouchard

With the commitment of the 34-year-old veteran Defers, General Supervisor Ken Holland also followed the defense.

The 760-fold NHL gamer, who utilized to bet the San Jose Sharks, Dallas Stars, Florida Panthers and Arizona Coyotes and had come to nine missions for KHL group AK Bars Kazan last season, is not one genuine newcomer. Due to the fact that the right shooter already played in preparation for the Oilers and was most recently used with a pure AHL contract in the Oilers-Farmteam Bakersfield Condors. According to the signed NHL contract, Defers is now giving brand-new options for the defense of Coach Jay Woodcraft on the right, especially given that Evan Bouchard (23) after his breakout year 2021/22 (an overall of 15 goals and 37 assists) at the moment. Has big issues.
