Forward Warren Foegele signed a three-year, $8.25 million contract with the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Foegele, 25, was acquired in a trade with the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday in exchange for defenseman Ethan Bear.

“He comes from a really good program,” Oilers general manager Ken Holland said. “In Carolina, they’ve done a lot of winning the last two or three years; they’ve been a good regular-season team, they went to the final four a couple of years ago. He’s a big, strong guy, he can skate, he goes to the blue paint, he’s dependable.”
