Edmonton Oilers have won the Joakim Nygard sweepstakes

Ken Holland is looking for wingers who can score goals and he has begun his search in a country he is very familiar with, as the Oilers have signed Joakim Nygard from Sweden.

The fast-skating Swede is being compared to Carl Hagelin with more finish as speed is his greatest asset. The Oilers are looking to build a team built on speed and skill and Nygard is a gamble worth taking.

Nygard scored the second most goals of any player in the Swedish Elite League last year and will be given a look throughout the Oilers lineup.
