Oilers Prospect Update: Bouchard lighting it up

Teams from the top to bottom of the Oilers system getting the wins this week but not a ton of offensive numbers put up. Puljujarvi and Yamamoto each got a goal in their first week in the AHL. Everyone that played this week in the ECHL got at least a point.

Oliver Rodrigue had a heck of a game against the Russians this week as he was beaten in OT to lose that one.

Trading a prospect? – Tyler Yaremchuk took a look this week at the chance the Oilers make a move with one of their prospects.

Top U-24 core – The Oilers were ranked as the top core 4 under 24

    Of note, I believe all seven of Bouchard’s points have been at even strength which is great to see.

    One thing with Samorukov, his stats don’t really do justice to how his game is coming along. He will always plays second fiddle to Merkley as the offensive catlyst but his defensive game is really starting to come along. He was fantastic for Russia at the Super Series – he wore a letter and may very well do so at the World Juniors as well.

    He’s going to be a bit of a project but he’s a great defender with size, skill and can skate – I look forward to him in Bakersfield next season.
