Statistically Speaking: Oilers ship Eberle to Isles

The Edmonton Oilers traded forward Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders on Thursday in exchange for forward Ryan Strome. He scored 20 goals and added 31 assists, playing 82 games with Edmonton last season.

In Eberle, the Islanders are getting a player who was originally drafted by the Oilers with the 22nd overall pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Eberle has been a mainstay in the Oilers' lineup since the 2010-11 season. The fifth-overall draft pick from 2011 hasn't yet panned out to be what many thought he could, but he's still very young and has the potential to break out with a change of scenery in Edmonton. In 258 career National Hockey League games, Strome has potted 45 goals, 81 assists for 126 points.

"New chapter, a fresh new start, I'm definitely not looking back".

Eberle told reporters that he knows several of his new teammates-including Tavares, Andrew Ladd, Travis Hamonic and Thomas Hickey-having trained with them in the past. Scoring at least 20 goals in every season since his rookie year, with the exception of his 16 goals in 48 games in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, Eberle will be a big help to the Islanders' offensive gameplan. The trade finally gives NY a high-end winger to pair with center John Tavares on its top line next season. "Coming there and everybody talking about how it was in 2006 and to have gone through it, I loved it", said Eberle, who took heat though because he didn't score and had two assists in 13 games.

Signed at a cap hit of $2.5-million, Strome will be a restricted free agent after next season.

Eberle has two years remaining on a six-year, $36 million contract at $6 million per season.

He's got a good pedigree - the Mississauga, Ont., native was picked just behind Larsson and four back of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in 2011.

Beginning July 1, Snow can begin negotiations on a long-term contract extension with Tavares, hoping to prevent one of the best players in franchise history from departing following next season. His departure will save the Isles approximately $5 million in salary cap space as they continue to pursue even more talent to surround two-time Hart Trophy finalist Tavares.
