Evan Bouchard has spoken with the media about his contract extension and what he is excited about next year.

Bouchard Extends

Yesterday, Evan Bouchard signed a two-year extension with the Edmonton Oilers worth $3.9 million per year.
Everybody knew that Bouchard's new deal would be a signing a bridge deal as the Oilers did not have the space to offer him a long-term deal.

Bouchard's Interview

Today Evan Bouchard had an interview with the Edmonton Media and gave some valuable insight into his contract situation and what is coming up.

Here are some of the notable quotes from this interview:
"Two years, I think it's a good stepping stone, a good bridge. And, you know, I think in the next two years, the Oilers are going to be a real force out there. And, you know, I'm just looking to be a part of that." - Evan Bouchard

Some were worried that Bouchard would be signing a potential offer sheet but he made it clear he wanted Edmonton.
"I don't think I wanted to go anywhere. And, you know, once we got into talks, like I said, we've been close for a while. And I've been excited for a long time to get the signing done and look forward to staying there." - Evan Bouchard

Bouchard also had some high praise for Mattias Ekholm.
"Yeah, I think it'll be great. It was very good for me and great for everyone else as well, not just myself. When someone has that big a part of the team and you get to have them for a full year, running this past year, I think it's going to help us grow." - Evan Bouchard on Mattias Ekholm

At the end of the day, Edmonton is glad Bouchard is back and is excited for what he can bring next year.
