Two selections from the 2021 NHL Entry Draft are among the first wave of cuts for the Oilers this training camp.
- Jake Chiasson (returned to Brandon-WHL)
Chiasson got a quick look, but his camp was short after he suffered what appeared to be a shoulder injury on the first day of camp.
- Matvey Petrov (returned to North Bay - OHL)
2020’s number one draft pick in the OHL Import Draft was unable to make it to North America in 2020 due to travel issues related to Covid-19, the forward will look to have a big year for North Bay.
- Tyler Tullio (loaned to Oshawa -OHL)
Tullio aveaged over a point per game with the Generals in 2019-20, he’ll return for one more shot after spending time in Slovakia last year.
The following have been released from their amateur try-outs
- Drew Englot
- Ethan Kruger
- Henry Rybinski
- Brady Burns
The most notable name among the four here is Henry Rybinski, who turned some heads in a rookie game when he potted two goals, as did Phil Kemp.
THE SHOW’S ABOUT TO BEGIN
