General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with forward Colin Fraser on a two-year deal.

Fraser was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for Edmonton's sixth round draft choice (151st overall) in the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

Fraser, 6’1”, 190lbs, was a member of the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks this past season, recording 19 points (7-12-19) and 44 penalty minutes in 70 games played.  He also appeared in three playoff games with the Blackhawks.
