The Edmonton Oilers and Jesse Puljujarvi have managed to avoid arbitration. Puljujarvi put pen to paper on a one-year contract worth $3 million.

The winger, who was a restricted free agent at season's end, tallied 14 goals and 22 assists for the Oilers in the 2021-22 regular season.

Puljujarvi added two goals and one assist in the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs, helping the Oilers reach the Western Conference Finals.

The two sides were scheduled to have an arbitration hearing on Friday. It's unclear if this agreement will impact Edmonton's efforts to trade the 24-year-old.
