EDMONTON (AP) -The Edmonton Oilers re-signed forward Zack Stortini to a three-year contract Tuesday.
Stortini had 12 points (3-9-12) and 201 penalty minutes in 66 games last season with Edmonton. His 201 penalty minutes ranked fifth in the NHL.
``Zack had a very productive season last year and we're looking for him to build from that,'' Oilers vice president of hockey operations Kevin Prendergast in a statement. ``He's an intimidating presence on the ice and is establishing himself as an important part of our hockey club.''
Stortini made his NHL debut with the Oilers during the 2006-07 season. He played in 29 games, netting one goal with 101 penalty minutes.
The Oilers also signed right wing Carl Corazzini to a two-way contract. Corazzini had career highs of 36 assists and 60 points with the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins last season.
