Oilers sign Yann Danis to a 1-year contract
Danis, 31, played in 43 games with the Oilers main affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons of the American Hockey League, posting a 26-14-2 record with a 2.07 GAA, .924 save percentage and five shutouts.
The 6’0”, 185-pound Lafontaine, QC native was awarded the Aldege “Baz” Bastien Memorial Award as the AHL’s outstanding goalie this past season and was also selected to the First Team All-Star Team.
He etched his name into the Barons record books twice. His five shutouts is the most in the brief two-season history of the Barons. He also owns the individual record for consecutive shutout minutes by a Barons goaltender at 173 minutes 16 seconds.
Danis appeared in one game with the Oilers in a relief appearance when he was recalled by Edmonton on February 20.
