Did you actually check to see some 16 year old numbers in the Q or are you using information about the league that was valid 10 years ago...

It was a slow start offensively for everyone not named Gernat and Foster on the Oil Kings.

In his last 8 games, he's 3-6-9 +7.

He started of slow and has picked it up as late. He's gotten to play with Wruck and St.Croix over the last few games, and its helping do what he does best, shoot the puck. His defensive game has been really good this year as well. He starting to get some feature roles now. PP and a bit of PK time. I think the points will start to roll in a little more freqently now.

Seen him twice, once live.

Fun player to watch. Gritty, good skater, great shot with a very good release.

He'll be in the running for a top 10 spot in 2013.

I've seen him twice now and he's been good, but not a stand out. It's tough to stand out though when you have such a deep team filled with very good 18, 19 and 20 year olds.

Lazars game like I said before is not flashy...he is strong, hard working, physical, he moves well without the puck, makes smart quick plays, and has a deadly shot.

Curtis Lazar

Sorry if this thread has been done already.
Curtis Lazar is a friend of a friend (I haven't met him, but my friend is very close to him as he played hockey with my friend's brother before going to the Dub).
I just wanted to know what everyone sees from him now in Edmonton and what they see for the future. I hear he has quite the competition with MacKinnon from the Halifax Mooseheads in the Q as they're both in the same draft class. Can you compare the two?
I haven't seen either of them play (hopefully next time the Oil Kings play against the Giants) and am just very interested in hearing about him because it's pretty cool knowing that sort of connection.
Thanks guys!

Lazar is having a fine year playing as a role player this year. When the Oil Kings acquired Tyler Maxwell in December, it pushed him down the depth chart. He'll likely be back in a feature role next year when Maxwell moves along at the end of the year.

Thread here about him. But he defiantly is one of my favorites for next years draft.

So, still in the playoffs scored last night I think (tweeted by renegade stylings i believe), but how was his regular season? Obviously not the 80 point player i predicted ..but still had a good year i found. Like scoutman1 said he's not flashy or anything, but wow his shot. It surprised me how fast he got the puck off his stick on one of his goal's didn't even think he'd shoot it. Spoke to him twice this year very nice and humble guy, really appreciates everything. What does he need to improve as well?

well he needs to get stronger, and faster...he has the work ethic, he has the shot, he has the smarts and the physical and gritty play, and does all the little things...so really he just has to keep working on getting stronger and faster.

I could see him doing that in the summer. He's already 190lbs so he doesn't need to bulk up. Still early but from what you've seen this year is he potentially able to become a 1st line centre in the NHL, or more so a 2nd?

Don't forget Petan, Rankin either, and if Seth Jones goes to Evrett, watch out.

Lazar, Rankin, Pulock, Roy, Comrie, Shinkaurk, Morrissey, Bowey, Petan, Klimchuk, Forsberg, Lees, Merkley, Chase, Needham, White, Heathring, Nikkel, Jensen, Geertsen, Kanzig, Hauf, Erkamps, Smith, Williams....it is a very scary draft for the WHL
