Kessy Signs With the Oilers

Fight1_tv72556_jpg_imgref_medium

One pattern that is becoming all too familiar to the readers of The Copper & Blue is how the Oilers have continued to amass a collection of junior and minor league prospects that would be described as Coke Machines; players that are big and tough, and as the Oilers hope, could develop a scoring touch. On March 29, in a move that infuriated many readers of this site, Oilers management traded the undersized two-way Kitchener Rangers star Tobias Rieder for Kamloops Blazer tough guy Kale Kessy. This despite the fact that the organization already has a glut of the same player type that they have acquired in their never-ending search for the next Milan Lucic.

On Saturday the Oilers announced that they had signed Kale Kessy to a three year entry-level contract. In doing so Kessy joined the illustrious assortment of Oilers 'prospects' and 'players' in Cameron Abney, Travis Ewanyk, Antti Tyrvainen, John McCarron, Mitch Moroz, Darcy Hordichuk, Ben Eager, and Mike Brown. While management may flush a few of these players in the offseason, it can be said that the Oklahoma City Barons will likely be the toughest team in the American Hockey League next season.
