Joyaux, 25, skated in 54 games for Tulsa as a rookie last season and recorded 15 points (1g, 14a), while leading the team with a +7 plus/minus rating. The Bloomingdale, IL native scored his first pro goal, a game-winner, December 2, 2016 in the Oilers’ 4-2 victory at Allen.

After four seasons at Miami University (Ohio), Joyaux appeared in eight games with the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps at the end of 2015-16. He recorded his first career point with the IceCaps, an assist on March 23, 2016 at Rochester.

The 6’0, 200 lbs. defenseman compiled 21 points (5g, 16a) in 148 college games during his four seasons at Miami, helping the Redhawks secure the NCHC Conference Championship as a junior in 2014-15.

Joyaux spent three seasons of juniors in the USHL, where he played in 101 games split between the Tri-City Storm, Des Moines Buccaneers and Chicago Steel.
