The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with forward Zack Stortini on a three-year contract.

In his first full season (2007-08) with the Oilers, Stortini recorded 12 points (3-9-12) and 201 penalty minutes in 66 games played.  His 201 penalty minutes ranked him fifth in the National Hockey League.

Oilers Vice-President of Hockey Operations Kevin Prendergast says, “Zack had a very productive season last year and we’re looking for him to build from that.  He’s an intimidating presence on the ice and is establishing himself as an important part of our hockey club”.
 
The 6’4”, 220 pound native of Elliot Lake, Ontario, made his NHL debut with the Oilers during the 2006-07 season.  Stortini played in 29 games, netting one goal with 101 penalty minutes.

The 22-year-old forward was drafted by the Oilers (3rd round, 94th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.  Before joining the Oilers, Stortini played four seasons with the Ontario Hockey League’s Sudbury Wolves, registering 120 points (55-65-120) and 746 penalty minutes in 247 career games.  After his third season with the Wolves in 2003-04, Stortini made his professional debut, playing in two regular season games and seven playoff games with the Oilers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Roadrunners.
