Ben Scrivens inks a two-year deal with the Oilers.

 SPECTOR’S NOTE: Scrivens’ deal is reported worth $2.3 million per season. Given his solid performance since joining the Oilers earlier this season, it’s no surprise they’ve opted to re-sign him. This move also likely means Ilya Bryzgalov won’t be re-signed by the club.

It remains to be seen, however, if this means Scrivens will be the Oilers’ starter going forward or if they attempt to sign Jonas Hiller or Jaroslav Halak via free agency this summers

Bollig’s deal is worth $3.75 million, breaking down as an affordable $1.25 million per season. He’s become a reliable and physical checking forward with the Blackhawks.
