Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Signs Entry-Level Contract

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins signs his entry-level contract and heads to Development Camp

As the Oilers prepare for their development camp, they've followed the 2010 template of signing their first overall pick to an entry-level contract before that camp beings.   This means that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will have no worries of a contract negotiations hanging over his head as he enters the Oilers 2011 Prospect Development camp.  Camp beings on Monday, July 4th and runs through July 9th at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park.

All eyes will be on Nugent-Hopkins because unlike Taylor Hall, the young centre has not been guaranteed a roster spot in 2011-12.  No terms were announced, but the first overall pick's contract should slot in right at the same level of compensation received by Taylor Hall, John Tavares, Steven Stamkos and Patrick Kane.  The rookie maximum deal, including bonuses means the overall cap hit will come in at $3.75 MM.
