The Edmonton Oilers have re-signed Leon Draisaitl to an eight-year contract worth $68 million.
That works out to an annual average value of $8.5 million. Draisaitl put up solid numbers in 2015-16 (19 goals, 51 points in 72 games), but he really came into his own last season, as he was second on the Oilers with 29 goals and 77 points in 82 games. The 21-year-old has quickly emerged as one of the best young centers in the NHL, and the Oilers have shown their commitment to him with this huge contract. Draisaitl will carry the biggest cap hit on Edmonton's roster next year, but he'll be passed by Connor McDavid's $12.5 million cap hit two years from now. After McDavid, he's the most dangerous forward on the team. Aug 16 - 2:15 PM
