GM MacTavish:
"On behalf of the Edmonton Oilers, I would like to thank Habsfan18 for once again hosting the Habs board Mock Draft this year, as well as the city of HFBoardVille for giving us a warm welcome today."

*Crowd boos*

GM MacTavish:
"Up yours... at this time, we'd like to bring up our head scout, CrimsonSkorpion, to announce the Oiler's 1st round selection."

*CrimsonSkorpion steps up to the podium*

HS CrimsonSkorpion:
"With the 7th overall pick of this year's entry draft, the Edmonton Oilers are pleased to select, from Brynas IF Gavle of the Sweden Elitserien, centre Elias Lindholm!



"Lindholm is an excellent offensive centre with amazing playmaking ability, good skating -- his agility and acceleration are what impress us the most, along with his first step -- and his vision and high hockey IQ tell us that he'll be a #1 centre for our organization very soon. On top of that, his defensive game is impressive as well. He is willing to throw his weight around and because he is so well balanced and smart in the defensive zone, more often than not he comes out of the defensive zone with the puck on his stick. We were shocked to see him fall into our spot and we are even more pleased to use our pick to snag him."

*Next GM PM'ed.
