The Edmonton Oilers have locked in Viktor Arvidsson with a two-year deal at $4 million per year, aiming to boost their offense.

At 31, Arvidsson has a solid reputation as a reliable scorer in the NHL. Despite dealing with numerous injuries last season, he remained resilient and contributed effectively to his Los Angeles Kings.
He also has a strong connection with oilers defenseman Matthias Ekholm, as they are known to be very good friends.
Viktor Arvidsson, signed 2x$4M by EDM, is a middle-six scoring winger who thrives off the rush. Loves to shoot the puck. Great secondary scorer although it hasn't translated in the playoffs recently. #LetsGoOilers

During his early tenure with the Nashville Predators, Arvidsson twice surpassed the 30-goal mark and often hit 60 points. Playing in an offensive system next to Leon Draisaitl, Arvidsson is expected to thrive. The Oilers' signing him at a reasonable cap hit is a strategic move, considering his potential.
Viktor Arvidsson is a fantastic target for Edmonton's top six — a forward who drives play well at 5-on-5 who doesn't need PP time to deliver value. Feels like a nice fit next to Draisaitl... as long as he can stay healthy.

In his last stop with the Kings, he was an excellent penalty killer early in his career but saw limited special teams action during his three years in L.A. He did have one strong year on the power play as a King, but most of his offensive contributions came at even strength.
