Oilers final pick of the day is a Russian, meaning the organization ignored the WHL and OHL this weekend. That’s breaking news. Corey Pronman had him No. 102. He’s a December 2000. He’s also one of the best Oilers picks on the day.
Corey Pronman: He’s a versatile forward, and has the skill and hockey sense to create offense. He’s a very good passer and finisher who scores with his above-average shot but also by attacking the net hard.
The Draft Analyst: A hard-working two-way center who made an immediate impression in training camp before leading the team in scoring in the regular season, Denezhkin is a tough out who always keeps his feet moving. He is a strong skater with above-average speed who forces opponents back and exploits any shred of open ice afforded to him.
