(Edmonton, AB) - The Edmonton Oilers have signed defenceman and alternate captain Darnell Nurse to a two-year contract extension through the 2021-22 season.
Nurse, 25, has appeared in 55 games with the Oilers this season, posting 24 points (4G, 20A), 44 penalty minutes and a -2 plus/minus rating. He ranks second among Oilers defencemen in points (24), time on ice (22:46) and second on the team in hits (129) and blocked shots (101).

According to HockeyViz, there is a 99 per cent chance the Bay Area is home to no man’s land this spring – a 99 per cent shot that the Sharks will both miss the Stanley Cup playoffs and miss out on the Draft Lottery, since the Ottawa Senators hold their unprotected pick from the Erik Karlsson trade.
That raises all sorts of questions about the Sharks’ roster.
The biggest one: Will Joe Thornton raise his hand and ask to chase a Stanley Cup elsewhere?
The 40-year-old future Hall of Famer is one of 13 intriguing new names added to the TSN Trade Bait board on Monday, including teammates Patrick Marleau and Barclay Goodrow.
Make no mistake: This will be Thornton’s call – and not only because Thornton holds the full no-move clause hammer. After 1,089 games in a Sharks uniform, it’s unlikely that GM Doug Wilson would go to Thornton asking him to consider a certain trade scenario.
