The Edmonton Oilers are still dealing with the disappointment of losing their heartbreaking Game 7 of the 2024 Stanley Cup Final against the Florida Panthers, and are now officially in the offseason. 

And while there's also been a major change within the organization with the departure of general manager Ken Holland, the team is reportedly on the verge of a contract extension for one particular figure between the pipes.

According to former NHL goaltender and current analyst Kevin Weekes, the Oilers are closing in on a new contract for Calvin Pickard, who stepped into the backup role earlier in the season following the waiving of Jack Campbell: 

Per Weekes, the new deal for Pickard will be for two seasons. 

NHL Insider Frank Seravalli has confirmed the deal is for two years, $1 million: 

Meanwhile, starter Skinner has two years remaining on his current deal that sees him earn an AAV of $2.6 million.
