Oilers sign '07 first-rounder

News: The Oilers signed D Alex Plante to an entry-level deal Thursday. Plante was the 15th overall pick in the 2007 NHL draft.
Analysis: The 6-3, 225-pound defenseman recently completed his fourth season with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL (juniors). He had eight goals and 45 points in 68 games. He also added 157 penalty minutes. Plante had 18 goals, 89 points and 334 penalty minutes in 224 career games. Despite being a former first-rounder, injuries have slowed Plante's progression and he is now a mid-level prospect for Edmonton. He is only 20 and has room to improve, but he projects more as a physical blue liner than burgeoning offensive star. He does move the puck well and has a rocket shot, but Plante remains just a low-end, long-term Fantasy keeper.
