The Oilers released their Rookie Camp rosters yesterday. Some interested names included, like Dylan Holloway, Raphael Lavoie, Xavier Bourgault and Kirill Maksimov. On the D side, Philip Broberg, Filip Berglund, and Phil Kemp highlight a group with more Phil’s than anyone could reasonably expect. For goalies, Ilya Konovalov and Olivier Rodrigue are joined by Ethan Kruger, an undrafted WHL goalie from Sherwood Park who’s put up decent numbers in Brandon the last two years (0.912 and 0.915 in 24 and 16 games, respectively).
Dave Tippett believes Duncan Keith is one of the most motivated players he’s ever seen and is eager to get back to playing the style he “got away from” the last couple years. Imagine if it was that easy? If Keith could simply make a choice to skate well laterally again? Wouldn’t that be something?
Anyway, don’t forget to stay tuned as our T25 U25 series continues through the weekend. See you on the other side.
