On week ago we got the report that Connor McDavid would be sticking around YEG for a looooooong time and would sign an 8-year contract extension with the Oilers.
The Oilers Entertainment Group just held a press conference to announce the official news…it’ll be an 8-year $100M extension for the reigning Heart Trophy winner!
“The Edmonton Oilers have signed Connor McDavid to an eight-year contract extension with an AAV of $12.5 million, the club announced today. The new contract kicks in beginning 2018-19, as he is currently in the final year of his entry-level contract.” says Chris Wescott, Head Writer at Edmontooilers.com
