The Edmonton Oilers have avoided arbitration with forward Gilbert Brule, signing the 23-year old to a two-year contract worth $1.85 million per season.

"Gilbert made a big step last year in his development," said Oilers' general manager Steve Tambellini. "We are excited to have him here in Edmonton and look forward to his continued contribution to the team."

Brule enjoyed the best season of his young NHL career, scoring 17 goals and adding 20 assists in 65 games.  In 222 career games Brule has 31 goals and 41 assists while splitting time between the Oilers and Columbus Blue Jackets.

Originally selected sixth overall by Columbus in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, the Edmonton native was acquired by the Oilers from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Raffi Torres in July of 2008.
