It was announced today that Curtis Hamilton and the OIlers have agreed to terms on a three year entry level deal. Hamilton's season with the Saskatoon Blades ended last week after they were surprisingly swept in the second round of the WHL playoffs by the Kootenay Ice. In 72 games with the Blades this season (including playoffs) Hamilton scored 30 goals and added 63 assists. He also played for Canada at the World Junior Championships where he scored four goals and came home with a silver medal.
We spoke with Hamilton in December, prior to the World Junior Championships and he discussed his strong two-way game and attention to detail.
