Oilers Prospect Update: Trust in Rodrigue

Another week in the books for the Oilers prospects and it has been just great watching the kids contribute up in the NHL after seasoning down in the AHL.

Kailer Yamamoto has been absolutely tearing it up in the NHL in the last few weeks and now we will be able to see Tyler Benson do the same (we hope) with his recent call up.

The Condors struggled a bit this week and the Thunder didn’t have a much better go of things.

Our European prospects (and Slepyshev) show some good stuff.

If you have a chance to tune in to our weekly podcast, Oilersnation Radio recently you will be able to hear my hot and cold performers of the week. My picks will almost always come from this update. Stay tuned!

Some players aren’t listed because we’re not sure where they will land playing wise, so you will see them added and noted, in the future.
