Oshawa Generals forward Tyler Tullio has signed with the Edmonton Oilers for a three-year, entry-level contract.
Tullio was Edmonton’s 126th overall selection in the 2020 NHL Draft.
The 19-year-old Lakeshore, Ontario native spent the 2020-21 season on loan to HK 32 Liptovsky Mikulas (Slovakia). He appeared in 19 games registering 13 points (4G, 9A).
Upon his return to North America, Tullio signed an amateur tryout contract with the Bakersfield Condors in March.
In his two seasons with the Oshawa Generals (2018-19 and 2019-20), Tullio played a total of 122 games and recording 108 points (42G, 66A).
His 27 goals and 39 assists in 2019-20 ranked second on the team, while his 66 points ranked third. He earned OHL Second Rookie Team honours in 2018-19 after collecting 42 points (15G, 27A) with 29 points coming over the final 27 games of the season.
Tullio was named captain of the Generals last week as he returns to Oshawa for the 2021-22 season.
He also recently participated in Hockey Canada’s Summer Showcase for players in consideration for World Juniors to be held in Edmonton and Red Deer in late December and early January.
