EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -The Edmonton Oilers have signed Anaheim Ducks forward Dustin Penner to a five-year, $21.25 million offer sheet on Thursday.
The deal is for $4.25 million per season, a huge raise over the league minimum $450,000 Penner earned last season in the last year of his entry-level contract.
The Ducks have seven days to match the offer. Should they decide not to match, the Ducks would receive two first-round draft picks, a second-round pick and a third-round pick from the Oilers.
It is the second time this summer that the Oilers have gone after a restricted free agent. The Oilers failed to get Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres earlier this month when the Sabres matched Edmonton's seven-year, $50 million offer.
The 24-year-old Penner had 45 points (29 goals, 16 assists) in 82 regular-season games while adding eight points in 21 playoff games for the Stanley Cup champions.
