EDMONTON – The Edmonton Oilers re-signed forward Zack Stortini to a three-year contract on Tuesday.
Stortini recorded 12 points (3-9-12) and 201 penalty minutes in 66 games played last season with Edmonton. His 201 penalty minutes ranked him fifth in the National Hockey League. “Zack had a very productive season last year and we’re looking for him to build from that,” said Oilers Vice-President of Hockey Operations Kevin Prendergast in a statement. “He’s an intimidating presence on the ice and is establishing himself as an important part of our hockey club.”
The 6-4, 220-pound native of Elliot Lake, Ont., made his NHL debut with the Oilers during the 2006-07 season. Stortini played in 29 games, netting one goal with 101 penalty minutes.
The Oilers also signed right wing Carl Corazzini to a two-way contract on Tuesday.
Corazzini recorded career-highs of 36 assists and 60 points with the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins last season.
