Prospect Update: Trouble in Bakersfield

Not a lot of highlight-worthy weeks for the prospects in this latest update (outside of the playoff races in the CHL which always mean bigger numbers).

Cam Talbot Is Still Thinking Playoffs And We Love Him For It

Weekend Update January 21st, 2018

The week that was with the Oilers system was a good one. Nugent-Hopkins’ injury has made way for Iiro Pakarinen to return to the NHL. I’m wondering if Oilers fans will have to start a JetsNationesque #FreeRattie for him to get a call to the big show and have his chance. In the WHL, Kailer…

Weekend Update: January 14th, 2018

Trade business in the WHL picked up this week. Newest Oilers prospect Cameron Hebig found himself in Regina with the Pats and Stuart Skinner has a new home in Swift Current. Skinner took no time at all getting used to a team in front of him that can play a more complete game, finishing the…

Weekend Update: January 7th, 2018

Brossoit has been sent down to get more playing time. Pasquale in Bakersfield puts his best foot forward this week with…
