{allcanada} Kris Russell signs four-year contract with Oilers


Defenseman Kris Russell signed a four-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers on Friday. Financial details weren't released, but TSN reported it is worth $16 million with an average annual value of $4 million and contains a modified no-trade clause.

Russell, 30, had 13 points (one goal, 12 assists) in 68 games and four assists in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games for the Oilers this season after signing a one-year contract with Edmonton on Oct. 8. He has 181 points (30 goals, 151 assists) in 641 NHL games with the Columbus Blue Jackets, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, Dallas Stars and Oilers. 

Russell led the League in blocks (213) last season and has the most blocks since the 2011-12 season (1,042).

The signing came one day after the Oilers traded forward Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders for forward Ryan Strome, which saved them $3.5 million in salary-cap space this season, according to
