This is Liam Reddox. He really does look like some kid whose Dad bought him a chance to skate around in an Oilers jersey but according to Kevin Lowe he improved more than any minor leaguer in the system season over season.
Two quotes in The Republican (Springfield paper) from Lowe detail how the organization sees the top prospects bubbling under. “Robbie Schremp was the most noteworthy player – and getting 75 points in the AHL is nothing to sneeze at – but that was expected of him. Reddox probably made the most improvement over what he was last season (in the ECHL), and Trukhno made the most improvement within the season.”
He also mention Theo Peckham as someone who made good use of his AHL season. The emergence of Trukhno late in the season may make Schremp trade bait at the draft unless Oilers management can find a role for him.
