The Edmonton Oilers have signed winger Brendan Perlini to a one year contract.

Perlini is a winger that can play on either side. His last NHL action was 2019-20 when he split time between Chicago and Detroit. He suited up for 35 games with the Red Wings, picking up four points (1-3-4) while playing a little less than eleven minutes a night. Most recently he was a member of the Switzerland club Ambri-Piotta, where he scored 17 points in 21 games.

Perlini was a former first round selection for the Dave TIppett-coached Arizona Coyotes back in 2014, when he was selected 12th overall.

Perlini's last tour of duty in the league had him often paired with forwards Christopher Ehn and Frans Nielsen, a line that was a black hole on offence.

Perlini’s deal is a two way contract, his cap hit is a tiny 750K when he’s on the big club, he will likely compete with Devin Shore for ice time.
