Oilers Prospect Update: A nice Kesselring to it

Busy week for the prospects as more players head up into the Oilers roster for all the injuries and suspensions.

Speaking of Bakersfield, they have had a brutal month of February (no doubt partly due to the turn over of the roster graduations) going 1-5-1 including a 10-3 pounding at the hands of the Ontario Reign.

A first time feature in the title of this week’s update for Michael Kesselring who has a two point week with Northeastern U.

Some context for a guy like Olivier Rodrigue, he is currently the fourth best goalie in the QMJHL in both Sv% and GAA. Third in the league in wins.

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.Β
