Rem Murray Re-Signs With Oilers
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) _ Rem Murray re-signed with the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday, avoiding an arbitration hearing that was scheduled in Toronto.
Terms were not announced.
Murray, 27, scored 21 goals and had 18 assists last season, his third in the NHL. In 221 career games, the left wing has 41 goals and 47 assists.
``It’s always preferable to arrive at a mutually agreeable contract rather than go through arbitration,″ said Doug Risebrough, the Oilers’ vice-president of hockey operations. ``This is a fair contract, and now we hope Rem will continue to improve.″
