Oil Kings Head West With Bantam Pick

The Edmonton Oil Kings held the 2nd overall selection in the 2010 bantam draft and chose to keep it. With a strong stable of blueliners in house already, the Kings looked to beef up their offence with Curtis Lazar from the Pursuit of Excellence program near Kelowna.

From our draft preview series here's a description of Lazar who`s listed at 5.08 and 170 pounds by the Pursuit of Excellence website, but I have been told he`s closer to 5.10.

Makes plays at high speed, good touch around the net, can show a physical side.

Lazar was ranked 7th among forwards on our list, but the Oil Kings saw something they really liked. Maybe it was this goal.

You can find out more about Lazar and the rest of the team`s picks by watching Global Edmonton Sports tonight at 6.
