One of the University of New Brunswick’s leading forwards has signed a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers, General Manager Steve Tambellini announced last Thursday.
Hunter Tremblay, 25, was the only Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) player in the country to average more than two goals per game. He was named CIS player of the year for 2010 afer collecting 25 goals and 32 assists in 27 games.
Tremblay, who just finished his fourth year at UNB, is now playing the rest of this season with Oklahoma City, the American Hockey League affiliate to the Oilers.
Right now his contract with the AHL is worth $65,000. But if he makes the National Hockey League next season, it will jump up to $565,000.
