Well, I’ve looked everywhere and there isn’t much on this player. He clearly took a step forward this season; he has size and grit.

I think we’ll find out that this was one of the Oilers’ “scout picks”, a chance to give an area scout a player from his region.

Steve Tambellini: “He’s 6.03, they think he’ll play around 220. He’s a right hand shot, and he plays with the edge, he’s a hard guy to play against and he scored 40 points last year. Not a lot of people talked about him, but he (Oiler scout Bill Dandy) was passionate about. We waited a little one extra pick, but we got him. I’m happy about this pick.”

Stu MacGregor: “Good size, very strong, competes hard and plays with an edge. A guy we really liked, Billy Dandy really pushed him hard. When I saw him play, the kid played on a terrible team but played hard every shift. We feel we gto some more size there and we got some grit.”
