Ales Hemsky won't be testing the NHL's free-agent waters.
The Edmonton Oilers signed the forward to a two-year extension worth $10 million, on Friday night, keeping him in the fold through 2013-14.
With Hemsky set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, he was considered a prime candidate to be moved ahead of Monday's trade deadline. Instead, he'll remain...
The Edmonton Oilers have been using their WHL affiliate team, “the other oil in town” the Edmonton Oil Kings unlike any other team in the NHL and the Oil Kings keep winning. Recently, the Oil Kings have been selecting in the expansion draft players that the Edmonton Oilers have drafted, players such as Kristians Pelss and Martin Gernat. And now, the Oilers have been drafting...
In an interesting turn of events, winger Ales Hemsky has re-signed with the Edmonton Oilers on a short term deal. Hemsky elected not to take his chances with free agency and possibly big money at a 5 to six year deal.

They wanted a "real and immediate" player in return...someone who could have played Top 4 D minutes or in the Top 9 at forward. Teams weren't offering that up for Hemsky, so management had to...
Oil Kings beat Hitmen 4-1
It may have seemed like a blue moon ago that Travis Ewanyk last skated for the Edmonton Oil Kings, but it was on Lunar Celebration night in the Saddledome that Ewanyk played his first game since being drafted. Ewanyk underwent shoulder surgery shortly before the season began and although he has been skating with his team for a few weeks, a game is a different...

Ales Hemsky has a 2 year, $5mil per season contract offer sitting on his coffee table, waiting to be signed. Will he sign it? It sounds positive. He's still thinking it over, but it looks positive.
