Oilers Announce Impressive Prospects Roster

The Edmonton Oilers released their list for prospect camp today.

This is the group that will play in the Young Stars Prospects Tournament in mid-September against other NHL clubs young prospects. The list is here. The marquee players are Taylor Hall, Magnus Pääjärvi and Jordan Eberle, but the secondary bunch is also impressive: Tyler Pitlick, Chris Vande Velde, Teemu Hartikainen among the forwards, and Martin Marincin and Jeff Petry on the blue. Goalie Olivier Roy is also a highly touted prospect of interest.

The Oilers have invited a few non-draftees/signings as well. Notable in that group is Chase Schaber. He’s a 19-year old WHL center with some jam and late (very late) developing skill. Mike Remmerde had this to say about him before the June draft:

  • We always knew this guy had some pretty good skill level, and he finally started to show it off after the trade from Calgary. Still has that speed and fearless style, too. Was on our list late last year and as a sleeper that we like, and maybe some team finally saw it. Probably gets passed over again, but deserves a camp invite.

Once again Remmerde calls it. The 8-game tournament in Penticton will feature Oilers, Flames, Canucks, Ducks and Sharks prospects. With their draft pedigree, the young Oilers should show well.
