Oilers sign prospect Rob Schremp

A member of Team USA at the 2005 IIHF World Championship in North
Dakota, Schremp has scored 97-142-239 in 190 career games in the OHL
over the last three seasons.

EDMONTON (CP) -- The Edmonton Oilers signed forward Rob Schremp to a
three-year contract Friday.

The five-foot-11, 200-pound Schremp was Edmonton's second pick in the
first round of the 2004 NHL entry draft. The 19-year-old American had
a goal in six pre-season games with Edmonton before being returned to
the OHL's London Knights.

"We are pleased to sign Rob to his first NHL contract," Oilers
assistant GM Scott Howson said in a statement. "He had an outstanding
training camp with us and we're looking forward to him playing a part
in the future success of the Oilers."

Schremp had 41 goals and 49 assists last season with London. He added
13 goals and 16 assists in the playoffs as the Knights captured both
the OHL title as well as the Memorial Cup.

Schremp has 97 goals and 142 points in 190 career OHL games.
