The Edmonton Oilers have signed Saskatoon Blades forward Jake Chiasson to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The NHL Club announced the signing Saturday morning.

Chiasson, from Abbotsford, B.C., has collected 20 goals and 54 points over the course of the 2022-23 WHL season, amassing 26 points (10G-16A) in 29 games since being dealt to the Blades by the Brandon Wheat Kings in January.

He was a fourth-round selection by the Oilers in the 2021 NHL Draft.

Chiasson’s entry-level deal takes effect at the beginning of the 2023-24 NHL season.

The 6-foot-2, 188-pound winger was originally selected 15th-overall by the Brandon Wheat Kings in the 2018 WHL Draft and has accrued 107 points (40G-67A) in 170 WHL regular season contests with Brandon and Saskatoon.
