Oilers reportedly re-sign Pisani to four-year deal
Citing undisclosed sources, TSN of Canada reported on its Web site late Friday night that Pisani signed a four-year, $8 million contract with the Oilers.
Pisani was slated to become an unrestricted free agent at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday.
A native of Edmonton, Pisani recorded career highs of 18 goals and 37 points last season -- his third in the NHL. But the 29-year-old blossomed in the playoffs, netting a league-leading 14 tallies -- including an NHL-best five game-winners -- and finishing sixth with 18 points as the Oilers came within one win of their sixth Stanley Cup championship.
An eighth-round pick in 1996, Pisani has registered 42 goals and 38 assists in 191 career regular-season games.
