This is Riley Nash. He represents the latest hope for the Oilers in their ongoing search for a homegrown center with size, skill and intelligence (call it the Horcoff family).
Nash is one of the kids who will be watched closely at the Edmonton Oilers Rookie camp which gets underway tomorrow.
Guy Flaming has a brilliant rundown of the players and what to expect here. Flaming lists Nash, Chris Vandel Velde and Cody Wild as players to watch, and I’d add Theo Peckham, Alex Plante and Sebastian Bisaillon as prospects worth paying attention to if you’re heading to Sherwood Park.
Everything gets underway tomorrow night at 6PM at Millennium Place with On-Ice Testing. Monday seems a more interesting day with something happening on the ice from about 9AM to 3:30PM. A complete rundown of events for the 8 days is available on the Oilers site.
