Nikita Nikitin has agreed to a two-year, $9 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers.
The Oilers, who gained permission from Columbus to negotiate with Nikitin, will now give the Blue Jackets a fifth round pick as compensation. Nikitin had two goals and 15 points in 66 games in 2013-14. He's a reliable top-four defenseman, but he saw his role with the Blue Jackets diminish last season, so it's not surprising that both parties decided that move on. Jun 25 - 9:45 AM
