The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with free agent defenceman Daniel Tjarnqvist on a one-year contract.

The 6'2", 200-pound native of Umea, Sweden spent the 2005-06 NHL season with the Minnesota Wild.

In 60 games with the Wild, the 29-year-old blueliner scored 18 points with a career-high 32 penalty minutes.

Tjarnqvist was also a member of Sweden's gold medal winning team at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino.

Originally selected by the Florida Panthers in the fifth round (88th overall) of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Tjarnqvist made his NHL debut with the Atlanta Thrashers in 2001-02.

He played three seasons with Atlanta (2001-02 to 2003-04) before signing as a free agent with Minnesota for the 2005-06 season. Tjarnqvist has 71 points with 92 penalty minutes in 278 career NHL games.

He's a decent d-man, not bad. Not going to relace the offence of a Jaroslav Spacek, or the all-around and absolutely solid game of a Chris Pronger... but not bad.

Man, I can't believe how much is team has fallen apart. It's almost too sad to even watch. Oil fans must be crushed.
