The Edmonton Oilers have signed defenceman Denis Grebeshkov to a one-year contract.

He was fourth on the Oilers in plus/minus at +2 and registered 22 penalty minutes while averaging 16:52 minutes of ice time per game.

Kevin Lowe's been pretty busy locking up his young talent so far.

D-Grebs is awesome
He has quickly become one of my favorite rearguards.
Hes gone from being literally nicknamed "garbagekov" to one of the most trusted dmen on the oil
If he plays the way he down the stretch hes in for a gilbert type contract
all hail D-Greb
