One of the Edmonton Oilers' centers is set to become a free agent this off-season and is ranked #44 on the list of available free agents. The team acquired Nick Bjugstad and defenseman Cam Dineen in exchange for Michael Kesselring and a third-round pick in the 2023 draft.

Following the departure of Jesse Puljujarvi, Bjugstad quickly found his place within the team and contributed valuable depth scoring in a bottom-six role, while also being an asset on the PK.


This season, he scored 17 goals and 29 points in 78 games split between the Arizona Coyotes and Edmonton Oilers.


Previously signing multiple one-year deals across the league for $900K per year after his six-year deal with the Florida Panthers expired, Bjugstad's projected annual salary, according to DailyFaceoff.com, may end up being around $2.3 Million AAV for 2 years.
