On the morning he signed his Entry Level Contract with the Edmonton Oilers, Connor McDavid thrilled the fans in his first public practice as an Oilers player. Of course, it was a rather low bar to thrill the 4,000 fans who showed up at Rexall Place to watch McDavid and other prospects go through drills as the Oilers development camp. The biggest cheers of the morning came when McDavid took the ice for warm-up, skated laps around the ice with his teammates, and fired the odd puck into the open net. Each time he shot, the crowd erupted in cheers. Folks were cackling, chortling, whooping, giggling, They were dancing with jingtinglers tied onto their heels. They blew their floofloovers. They ban

The big news earlier today was Connor McDavid signing his entry level deal. It was a very easy negotiation. He gets the max deal, like every other #1 pick. As good as McDavid is going to be, he won't be the lead catalyst in their quest for better team defence. He, like all forwards, will play a part, but the Oilers defensive deficiencies need to be improved by the defencemen and, most importantly, the goalies.Meet Cam Talbot. He'll arrive in Edmonton in late August and prepare for a battle with Ben Scrivens to win the starting job. He is excited about the opportunity.

Connor McDavid played 66 junior games for the Erie Otters this season and seven more at the world junior championship. Even when the hockey stopped, there was more to do. McDavid went to Quebec City for the CHL awards, Buffalo for the NHL scouting combine, Edmonton for a visit and then South Florida for the NHL draft. This week, he’s back in Edmonton for the Oilers development camp, his first time on the ice in that orange and blue, and on Friday agreed to terms on his three-year entry-level contract. Excited #Oilers fans chanting for @cmcdavid97 as he takes to the ice at Rexall Place for his first public practice http://t.co/v5SD7Cl99F — Sportsnet (@Sportsnet) July 3, 2015 Am

Edmonton Oilers sign Connor McDavid; now what?

Jack Eichel may have signed his entry-level contract with Buffalo first, but folks in Edmonton don’t care because Connor McDavid is officially under contract now. The top pick in the 2015 draft signed his rookie year deal with the Oilers today, getting the maximum amount possible under the collective bargaining agreement: a base salary and signing bonus that added up to $925,000, plus a bunch of bonuses available that could push his total earnings as a rookie into seven figures. But since NHL rookie max deals are pretty standard, there’s not a lot to say about the McDavid contract. We can, however, look at the lineup he will be joining. Edmonton has infamously missed the playoff
