The Edmonton Oilers have selected defenceman Evan Bouchard at 10th overall.

The London Knights defenceman loves to shoot the puck. Not coincidentally, he also likes to score evidenced by his 87 points in 67 games. If all goes well, this is the guy who’s going to quarterback the power play in a few years.

Edmonton had the opportunity to select Noah Dobson and Oliver Wahlstrom after the New York Rangers selected Vitali Kravtsov at 9.

More to come.
