Oilers sign center Leon Draisaitl to 8-year extension

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) The two biggest cornerstones of the emerging Edmonton Oilers franchise are now locked up for the long haul.

Six weeks after extending Connor McDavid for eight years and $100 million, the Oilers signed 21-year-old Leon Draisaitl to an eight-year contract with a sizable annual cap hit of $8.5 million. Paired primarily with McDavid, Draisaitl posted a career-best 77 points last season - eighth best in the NHL.

He added another 16 points during Edmonton's first playoff run in more than a decade - separated, eventually, from the precocious Oilers captain.
