David Musil grew up in Edmonton. His dad, Frank, you might remember, played for the Edmonton Oilers for three seasons. He's been employed by the Oilers as a scout since he retired as a player in 2001.
Frank's baby boy used to have the run of Rexall Place when his dad played here. You'd see him around the dressing room. David would throw on his skates and helmet and wobble around out on the ice after practice.
