William Lagesson, Edmonton’s fourth-round pick in 2014, has signed his three-year, entry-level contract, the club announced on Friday.

Lagesson, 21, has spent the last two years at UMass-Amherst, serving as an alternate captain under head coach Greg Carvel.

“It’s my first year as the head coach and I was brought in to rebuild the program and one of the first things I was told was how much I’d enjoy coaching Willy Lagesson because he’s just an ultra-competitive kid,” Carvel told the Oilers website last month. “I have not been let down.”
