EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have announced that they have signed former Lethbridge Hurricanes' goalie Stuart Skinner to a three- year entry level contract.

The 19-year old appeared in 25 games with the Broncos and played four seasons for the 'Canes, posting a .907 save percentage.

He was traded by the Hurricanes to Swift Current in early January, along with Giorgio Estephan and Tanner Nagel.

The 6'4", 200-pound goaltender played a key role in helping Swift Current reach the WHL final and capture the Ed Chynoweth Cup, defeating the Everett Silvertips in six games.

 In 26 playoff appearances, Skinner registered a 16-8-2 record, with a 2.20 goals against average, a .932 save percentage and six shutouts.

Skinner was selected by the Oilers in the 3rd round, 78th overall in the 2017 NHL Draft.
