The Edmonton Oilers have liked what they've seen from goalie Ben Scrivens and signed him to a two-year deal on Monday.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun the deal is worth $2.3 million per season.

Scrivens was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings earlier this season for a third-round draft pick.

In seven games with the Oilers the 27-year-old has a .940 save percentage, 2.15 goals against average and one shutout.

"It's a great opportunity," Scrivens said. "Now the real work begins... It's great to be here in Edmonton playing at home."

In 58 career NHL appearances, Scrivens, who began his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, has a .921 save percentage and 2.49 goals against average.
