The 22-year-old Brock Badger signed a two-year entry-level deal. He spoke after his signing and gave a rundown on what he will be doing, including joining the Oilers AHL team at the end of the month.

The Oilers crease became even more crowded after adding Ungar as the team is currently carrying five goalies in their system. Many feel the team added the depth as a few will be leaving at the end of this season including Calvin Pickard to UFA and Jack Campbell, who is a buyout candidate.
