We'll see I guess, I still think he's a long shot. Kids who play his style take a long time to translate their skills to the NHL unless they're huge kids like Kassian. Ewanyk is big at 6'2 190 but he's not exactly a monster.

Regardless, congrats to him on his ELC. Hopefully he continues progressing.
Doesn't mean if you live in Edmonton that you have watched the Oil Kings. What WJC exhibition are you talking about? I can not seem to remember him playing in one.

They drafted him because he was 17 year old kid playing a shutdown role against the other teams top line, and also he hits, fights and does whatever it takes to win the the game. Last season in E****y's first 21 games of the year the Oil Kings did not lose one game not saying it was all because of him, but is a very important player, but we are both allowed are own opinions
