Oilers Prospect Update: Marody earns the call

A slower week for most of the system of the Oil. Slow in the sense that the games played just aren’t there. Still working on figuring out what is wrong with Safin in Halifax. There are some highlights for you to check out including a few headlines:

Keegan Lowe named captain – the son of Kevin Lowe has overcome a bunch to take on the mantle of the leader in Bakersfield.

Gravel and Marody up – Injuries have started to pile up (really from the win against the Bruins) and so some of the AHL guys are going to get a shot in the NHL.

Slepyshev addition – You asked and I answer. This page is and will be named for the prospects watch. Not all players on it are the traditional prospects persay. Anton Slepyshev is another kind of angle to this story as technically he is still in the Oilers control and so I have added him to the list of players to track this year for you.
