Western Michigan junior defenseman Jordan Oesterle will forgo his senior year with the Broncos after signing a two-year, entry-level contract with the Edmonton Oilers on Monday afternoon.

Oesterle played 113 games with WMU, scoring seven goals and tallying 27 assists for 34 points. This past year, he recorded two goals and 17 assists, doubling his point totals from his first two seasons.

“I’m very excited to be joining the Edmonton Oilers,” said Oesterle in a news release. “It has been a dream of mine and I want to thank everyone involved here at Western Michigan. Without them, this couldn’t be possible.”

“We want to congratulate Jordan on pursuing his career in professional hockey with a great organization like Edmonton,” added Broncos’ coach Andy Murray. “Jordan is a great student-athlete and has done a fine job of representing Western Michigan on and off the ice.”
