The Edmonton Oilers announced Tuesday that they have agreed to terms with forward Linus Omark on a one-year contract. No financial terms were disclosed.
Omark, 26, played last season with Zug of the Swiss League and had a league-high 69 points, including 17 goals, in 48 games. Much of that time was spent on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Damien Brunner of the Detroit Red Wings, who played with Zug during the NHL lockout.
Prior to that, he played 65 games with the Oilers over parts of the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, scoring eight goals and adding 22 assists for 30 points.
The Oilers elected Omark in the fourth round (No. 97) of the 2007 NHL Draft.
