Marty Reasoner returns to Oilers
The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with centre Marty Reasoner on a two-year contract.
Reasoner returns to the Oilers from the Boston Bruins, where he played the final month of the 2005-06 season following a trade for Sergei Samsonov on March 9th.
The 61", 200-pound centreman scored a career-high 11-23-34 with 28 PIM in 77 games with the Oilers and Boston last season. Reasoner registered 26 of his 34 points with the Oilers as he had nine goals and 17 assists with 20 PIM in 58 games for Edmonton. Five of his nine goals came on the powerplay and he added one game winning goal.
Reasoner will return to the Oilers for his fifth season in 2006-07. Originally acquired from the St. Louis Blues on July 1, 2001, Reasoner has scored 28-48-76 in 197 games with Edmonton and has 99 PIM. He has 47-84-131 with 149 penalty minutes in 311 career NHL games since making his league debut with St. Louis in 1998-99.
He reached two career milestones in 2005-06, scoring his 100th career NHL point with a powerplay goal versus the Phoenix Coyotes on October 18th and the seven-year veteran played in his 300th career NHL game on March 24th at New Jersey while with Boston.
