Ladies and gentlemen, Linus Omark.
Now, I'm not really a big fan of scouting by video clip, but if I were I'd be salivating. Omark scores in every situation - garbage goals from in front of the net, quick goals on the rush, and gritty goals off of the cycle. His goal at 4:03 was a special move. What statistics we have are good; he led his team in scoring and finished third in the entire Elitserien.
We won't know until next year of course, but Linus Omark has a good chance at being the best player the Kevin Lowe-era Oilers have drafted out of Europe.
