Justin Schultz

The Edmonton Oilers agreed to terms with Justin Schultz on a US$3.675-million, one-year contract that puts him in line to make him a restricted free agent again next off-season.

Schultz, 24, said the one-year deal means he has to perform.

“I just got to prove that I’m worth that longer-term money and they want me here for a longer term,” Schultz said in a phone interview. “I want to be here and I’ve got to make sure I improve my defensive game and know I can play against other teams’ top lines without them worrying about me out there and being able to put me out in all situations.”
