Edmonton Oilers re-sign defenceman Slater Koekkoek to two-year deal

The Edmonton Oilers are bringing back defenceman Slater Koekkoek on a two-year, $1.85-million contract:


The deal carries an average annual value of $925,000.

Koekkoek, 27, put up a single point in 18 games for the Oilers after signing with the club prior to the start of the 2020-21 season.

The left-shot defenceman’s most productive NHL campaign came the year prior, when he recorded 10 points in 42 games during the pandemic-shortened 2019-20 season.

Koekkoek, a native of Winchester, Ont., was selected 10th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2012 NHL Draft.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
