Former NY Islanders forward Ryan Strome looks forward to a fresh start with the Edmonton Oilers.

Updates on Ryan Strome, Jamie Oleksiak, Brandon Prust and Derek Dorsett in your NHL morning coffee headlines.

EDMONTON SUN:  Winger Ryan Strome is looking forward to a fresh start with the Oilers and playing alongside Connor McDavid.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: This is a great opportunity for Strome,24, to get his once-promising NHL career back on track. The Oilers are a team on the rise and he could be a good addition. He had a 50-point performance in 2014-15 but struggled offensively over the next two seasons. His stats could skyrocket if he becomes a regular on McDavid’s line. 

THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS: The Stars re-signed defenseman Jamie Oleksiak to a one-year deal worth over $964K.

NBC SPORTS: Vancouver Canucks forward Derek Dorsett is ready for training camp after recovering from neck surgery last December.

  1. So Oleksiak gets a small raise and now (according to capfriendly) the Stars are just over the cap with no players that can be demoted without waivers….wonder who ends up exposed….
