Edmonton Oilers Sign Two More Free-Agents

The Edmonton Oilers continue to load up their depth chart with options as the team has agreed to bring in both forward Devin Shore and defenseman Ryan Stanton to professional tryout agreements.

The 26-year-old Shore spent last season split between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Anaheim Ducks where he finished with 12 points in 45 games. Shore was originally a 2nd round pick of the Dallas Stars back in 2012. His best season came back in 2017 when he had 33 points in 82 games. Shore will battle for a fourth line role with the Oilers, vacated by Riley Sheahan heading to Buffalo.

As for Stanton, the 31-year-old went undrafted way back when and spent last season playing for the AHL's Ontario Reign where he tallied 5 points in 36 games. Stanton hasn't played on a regular basis since 2015 with the Vancouver Canucks where he put up 11 points in 54 games. Stanton will battle for a taxi-squad spot on the Oilers this season.
