It was a pretty chippy game that featured hits, fights, goals and saves in Leduc tonight, and saw the Oilers freshmen skate away with a 6-3 win. Here are my thoughts on who stood out good or bad.
Jordan Eberle seemed to be in a scoring spot all night long, made a nice play to help set up the Oilers first goal combining with Milan Kytnar and Philippe Cornet for the marker. Eberle also scored a doosy weighting just long enough to put it into an empty net. Now before we put him on the team, it's just rookie camp, but he did look very good.
I've been impressed with Johan Motin all rookie camp and he was good again tonight. Positionally he was solid and moved the puck well.
Kurtis Mucha made several very good stops as well, especially in the 3rd period.
Oil King forward Michael Burns looked ok, but didn't do anything to stand out, however being at this camp should help him elevate his game this year. I mentioned Kytnar above and the chemistry continued with himself and Jordan Eberle. As pointed out earlier in the week, Kytnar is heading back to Saskatoon. Following him will be Derek Hulak and Burke Gallimore, neither did much tonight.
Here now are 10 players I expect to get an invite to main camp starting Sunday:
Who's on your list that isn't on mine?
