The Edmonton Oilers announced today they have agreed to terms with defenceman Justin Schultz on a one-year contract.

He set career highs in several categories including points, goals, assists, blocked shots (107) and hits (30). Schultz led all Oilers defencemen in points, assists and goals, as well as led the team in time on ice, averaging 23:20 per game.
