OILERS AT 149: GRAHAM MCPHEE

George McPhee’s son, some info below-my thanks to The Hockey Writers:

  • David Gregory, Central Scouting: Every time I see him I think he does more to give me the confidence to say this is the kind of player who will only get better. You immediately notice his compete level for sure. He goes out and gives you everything he has each shift. Then you start to see the hockey sense and how he’s capable of making the right play in almost every zone. Then there’s the skill, which might have been unexpected because there were other people on the team that potentially had more of that role on the team. To me, he’s a coach’s dream in a sense that you can play him a lot of situations and you know what you’re going to get out of him from his work ethic.

US National Development team, it is a hockey factory. He is small for today’s draft, 5.11, 172. ISS had him No. 100

  1. Younger Oil says:

    Very, very odd 5th round.

  2. 36 percent body fat says:

    so best case scenario he develops perfectly and he is a 3rd left wing. most likely career AHL or 4LW/ . Why pick these guys. If your going to do this at least pick the 6’5″ version.

    Draft started awesome not finishing well.

    Another Finn!

    Aapeli Rasanen. 6’0 C.

  4. Centre of attention says:

    Really like their next pick. Finnish right-shot C with some offensive Juice. Average size, 6’0 198lbs

    Oilers take Aapeli Rasanen. Another Finn

    I see Chia subscribes to the Finns Winn philosophy as well.

  7. Younger Oil says:

    Like the Rasanen pick though, not small RHC always nice.

    Like him.

  9. doritogrande says:

    McPhee top end? Maybe Jason Zucker?

  10. BlacqueJacque says:

    Edmonton sure got a lot more European this weekend!

  11. doritogrande says:

    Jets just picked up a goalie in the late rounds.

    He’s going to be a freaking star. Book it.

  12. Centre of attention says:

    Woodguy: Woot!

    He’s got skill too. Really like the pick.

  13. Caramel Batman says:

    The iron rule of hockey is that hockey people believe things that aren’t true and make bad decisions because of it. The draft shows this year after year.

  14. Mr DeBakey says:

    That whole thing with Dubois-Puljujarvi left the Oilers unable or unwilling to draft the son of an NHLer.

    They filled that need with the 149th pick today.

    Aapeli Rasanen looks good at 153.

  15. Chris says:

    I like Rasenen but apparently we need to hire Tikkanen go come be our Finnish player development coach.

  16. Professor Q says:

    The Jets will trade him to Dallas?
