Jordan Eberle Signs 6-Year, $36 Million Contract With Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers have locked up one of their young stars for the foreseeable future, announcing a large deal with right-winger Jordan Eberle. According to the team, Eberle, 22, has signed an extension worth $36 million over the next six years, keeping the young forward with the club through the 2017-18 season.

Eberle's deal comes one week after his young teammate, 20-year-old left-winger Taylor Hall, signed a seven-year, $42 million contract.

Edmonton drafted Eberle with the 22nd pick in the 2008 NHL draft. He debuted with the team in 2010, recording 43 points while primarily playing on the second and third line during his rookie season.

In two seasons with the Oilers, Eberle has scored a total of 52 goals, including 34 last season in 78 games. He led the team with 76 points in 2011-12.
