Forward Dylan Holloway is an Alberta product that most recently finished his first year with the University of Wisconsin. A recently turned 19 year old prospect, Holloway’s skating ability is very good, and he’s difficult to knock off the puck. A southpaw, Holloway can play both left wing and centre.

THINGS YOU LOVE TO SEE

  • Holloway’s got hands and toughness. If you’re gonna draft a tough customer, having skill alongside it is imperative in today’s NHL.
  • He’s got excellent accuracy with the puck. I can think of a couple of players he can dish the puck to in a couple of years when he’s on the big club.
  • He’s a top NCAA player selected in this year’s NHL Draft.

Ken Holland likely saw a mix of speed, skill and savvy in this pick. It’ll be at least a year of two before he’ll likely make an impact for the organization, but he’ll be one to watch this year as he looks to continue improving his game at the NCAA level.

Should Edmonton avoid making any trades in the draft, their next selection will be in the third round. Round two begins tomorrow at 9:30 AM MST/11:30 AM EST
