The Edmonton Oilers agreed to terms on a new contract for general manager Steve Tambellini on Wednesday.

"Three years ago, we asked Steve to begin a rebuild which we all know hasn't been easy," said Oilers' president of hockey operations, Kevin Lowe. "However, Oilers fans can take some consolation in the fact that Steve and his staff have acquired some amazing talent which will most definitely be the cornerstone to future sustained success for the Edmonton Oilers."

After 17 seasons as a member of the Vancouver Canucks management team, Tambellini joined the Oilers in 2008. The 54-year-old native of Trail, British Columbia, served as the Canucks' vice president and assistant general manager for three seasons. In his role with the Canucks, Tambellini was involved in all aspects of the team's hockey operations including contract negotiations, scouting and minor league affiliates.

Tambellini and Lowe have previously worked together as members of Team Canada's management team, helping lead Canada to success on the international stage. As director of player personnel, Tambellini helped put together the roster that won the gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah, and was also a member of the management team for Team Canada's gold medal triumph at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. He also served as the general manager of Team Canada at the 2003 and 2005 World Hockey Championships, winning the gold medal in Finland in 2003 and silver in 2005.
