Oilers Prospect Update: NCA-Eh?

This week’s prospect update is light again as the camp rosters have been announced and all the players are in Edmonton, either playing or getting ready to play. In the world juniors, the elimination of Team Sweden means there is only Dylan Holloway remaining as a medal hopeful.

It’s fascinating to see the Oilers prospect list shifting into the NCAA. Carter Savoie has been the feel good story for the Oilers this offseason so far. Holloway of course at the world juniors and then both Matthew Cairns and Michael Kesselring have been putting up solid numbers.

We will see how the camps work with cuts and when/if they will head back to their European teams when all is said and done.

Side note for those of you who are reading the update for the first time.
While it’s a prospect update, not all players are specifically prospects in the traditional sense of the word. Some are merely players of which we own the rights to, and some are older players who I think people would like to follow along with.
Updates are current as to the time of publish (if they’re playing in a game when it’s published, I won’t include that)

M.O.B.I.L.I.Z.E x OILERSNATION

“When Oilersnation reached out to me on our initial connection it reminded me of what the treaties are supposed to represent. A collective moving forward in a good way.
From an indigenous perspective this has been told to me to be like the boat and canoe floating down the same river, together but not in conflict. This design is taking my indigenous artistic practice and blending it with the ON logo. As indigenous people much of our culture is based on the concept of the circle and the balance that it represents (depicted within the ON logo). The syllabic art within the hand is inspired by Cree traditional tattoos and in syllabics is the name of this beautiful territory as my nation (Nehiyaw/Cree) would write it “Amiskwaciwâskahikan”. Syllabic form is the proper way for writing our language.
Amiskwaciwâskahikan translates to “beaver mountain house” and the territory we all live on was a common meeting place of many indigneous nations”. – Dusty
