AHL Report Cards 07-08

We’ve already established the Edmonton Oilers got a tremendous amount out of a non-playoff season (Department of Youth). At the minor league level there were some interesting things too, including one graduate from junior (Peckham) adjusting well to minor league pitching and another who hit his stride after a season in Double-A (Reddox).

For a rather large group of Oiler fans, the minor league season has been about keeping track of #44 in photo, a young man who is a lightning rod and a compelling if flawed hockey player. The Hockey Jesus is still “on the bubble” but he is one of several who improved season over season and improved their chances of having an NHL career. Here is the list of AHL prospects who had better than 50% seasons and their stories:

  1. Liam Reddox 88%
  2. Theo Peckham 82%
  3. Rob Schremp 80%
  4. Jeff Deslauriers 75%
  5. Marc Pouliot 75%
  6. Bryan Young 73%
  7. Devan Dubnyk 70%
  8. Slava Trukhno 70%
  9. Danny Syvret 68%
  10. Jean Francois Jacques 65%
  11. Colin McDonald 57%

More to come.

    I’ve been up and down and completely unsure about Schremp since his draft day and he has one sparkling ability that has shined throughought his Oiler campaign.

    He makes players around him better.

    It doesn’t seem to matter who it is but as long as you give him the minutes you will get super positive results from him and/or someone who is on his line.

    How much that attribute means to an NHL club is debateable, of course. I think he deserves his shot next season (assuming he has an injury free camp).

    Those grades look bang on- coming in Jacques made the team and McDonald was projected to be a “better player as a pro”, but going out it’s guys like Peckham and Reddox who moved up the depth chart.
