Draft Day

Messagepar Edmonton » 05 Déc 2017, 15:03

For the first time in few drafts the Oilers kept their picks and decided to be part of the draft. GM Joyal had plenty of quality picks to work with and the scouting team did a great job. When we asked GM Joyal if he was happy about the draft he stated : Everyone is happy right after a draft. Nobody will say they had a bad draft right after. We will see in 2-3 seasons how the prospect will develop and then I will tell you if we had a good draft! Here are the newest additions of the Oilers:

Rd 1 #10
Michel Hermans C- Portland Rosebuds - 44G 90A 134P 72GP
Michel is for sure one of the best if not the best centerman in the draft. We were not expecting him to be available in #10. Great playmarker and good puckhandler. We might offer him a contract right of the get go to make him play in Calgary to see if he could play with us in 2 seasons. Will play with Team Canada Juniors this year. He will need to work on his skating.

Rd 2 #21
Mason Forester LW- Ottawa Silver Sevens - 41G 36A 77P 72GP
Mason was on our list for the first round. We were happy to see him slip in the second. Great shooter with some speed and some puckhandling skills. He will play in Ottawa again this season unless a last minute change. We want him to dominate in juniors this season and to have a 50 goal season. Will also need to be more responsible in his own end.

Rd 2 # 23
Brady Corathers LW - Montreal Maroons - 30G 25A 55P 72GP
Brady is a big body at 6 foot 5 at 17 years old. He has some speed for his size and has some goal scoring abilities while being able to defend in his own end. We see a nice powerforward in him. We hope that he will play 20 minutes per game in Montreal and rack up a 1 point per game ratio this season. Even if he his big he needs to work on his phisicality.

Rd 2 #26
Johann Uteev C - Kenora Thistles - 21G 17A 38P 68GP
Johann is a project for us. He has some speed, some face off skills, can play in his end and can shoot the puck. We want his to be a good 3rd or 4th line center in the Pros in 5 to 6 seasons. We will give him time to develop well.

Rd 2 #30
Janola Sakkinen D - Portland Rosebuds - 8G 33A 41P 72GP
We could have easily picked Janola with our pick 21. He has the best OV in the draft, all players included. Not a big size but great puck mover and some good defenseive skills even thou he racked up a bad -22 this season. He played almost 29 minutes per game this season. We might offer him a contract right away to play in Calgary.

Rd 3 #45
Kevin St-Amour RW- Ottawa Silver Sevens - 27G 32A 59P 72GP
Good offensive player. Almost 60 points by playing 11 minutes per game. We want him to develop in Ottawa this season and have a great role there. He will need to work on his defense skill to be a good 200 foot player.

Rd 3 #54
Jean-Claude Waterson C - Montreal Maroons - 30G 44A 74P 63GP
Pure power forward. Fast, skills, strong, finish his checks. Can be one of the under rated player in the draft. Over a point per game at 17 years old, playing 20 minutes per game. We were surprise that he wasn't gone in the second round. Will develop in Montreal again this season but good be a great asset in the near future. Great candidate for a 3rd line center at Team Canada Junior this season.

Rd 3 #55
Veniamin Blotski G - Portland Rosebuds - 4,66 GAA 0.867% 22 wins
Veniamin is a goalie we did not have on our radar at first. He played ost of Portland's games this season and by watching Hermans and Sakkinen played we got to know him. Maybe not the best goalie in the draft but was a big part of the team this season with the hability of stealing games. Now we want to see him do that more this season. He is a project for us that could end up being good.
