The Edmonton Oilers have found their man.
Goaltender Jack Campbell has signed a five-year deal with the Edmonton Oilers with an average annual value of $5 million.
Campbell, 30, was starter for the first time in his career last year, posting a 31-9-6 record with five shutouts in 49 games. Campbell had a career record of 51-14-9 over parts of three seasons with the Leafs and was a big part of the team's playoff efforts the past two years.
Campbell battled injuries last year, that limited his overall play near the end of the regular season, but he proved he can be a valuable netminder. He was in Vezina Trophy discussions over the first half of the year and is a great story after starting slow in his NHL career to become a legit No. 1 starting option.
Campbell will bolster an Oilers crease that ran with Mike Smith, Mikko Koskinen and Stuart Skinner last year. Koskinen signed in Europe, with the other two still in the system.
