D Cody Corbett - Edmonton Oil Kings, WHL (2012 undrafted)

Keep an eye on this player, he's draft eligible this year. He's only played 2 games so far to this point, has a goal and assist in tonight's game. He's got a very nice skillset for a defenseman. Thick-bodied, puck moving, hard shooting, decent skater. Just everything you'd look for in a defenseman. The Oil Kings have an embarrassment of riches on the backend.

Great game from Corbett tonight, smart puck mover with a wicked shot.

Great choice for him to come to Edmonton to develop, a lot more scouts have noticed him.

i was thinking this myself when i heard he was going to play for edmonton. 6'1 210 mobile puckmoving dman. He had a very good season last year as a 16yo in minnesota HS. He is looking very comfortable in the dub, it will be interesting to see if he can make some noise up the rankings.

Was very curious to see how he played now that he's come North. Sounds like a solid player.

Watched him all Fall in the Upper Midwest (MN) Elite League. Solid skater, physical, moves the puck well, good first pass. Leadership qualities, big time point shot. Just a crazy development curve too.

The issue is that he was starting to do too much, skating laps during his shifts. To me that tells me he wasn't being challenged, so going to the Dub is big for him.

To me, he's at his best when he isn't jumping up in the play; taking care of his end and moving the puck up.

Couldn't agree more.

He was targeted as one of our Minnesota players to watch. Now he's on our Minnesota-born players to watch

Seen him in person once now. And he seems like a really good player, I like him a lot.
Edmonton's defensive line is excellent. Pysyk is his usual steady self, Reinhart has had a bit of a slow start but seems to be coming around, and Gernat has been an excellent surprise. Lowe still takes a number of stupid penalties though.

the oil kings have one of the best defences in the dub, at least on paper. they are only gonna get better as the season progresses i think, especially corbett, reinhart and gernat

Corbett is a hell of a player that I have been evaluating for the last few years. His progression has been unbelievable, as he went for a marginal player to an absolute stud. I wish him continued success in the WHL.

Side note: His coach in high school was NHL great Phil Housley

I have no idea to be fairly honest, he was my choice as "most improved player" last year and still think he deserved a selection last year. Even though he has been over twice, I am still confident a team will invite him to training camp or sign him to a ELC in the offseason.

Minnesota has brought him into camp twice. I think they are interested in him. We'll see after this season.

Ryan Wilson/Boychuk, solid 5-6 defenseman with offensive upside.

Quote:
#2 Cody Corbett – Two-Way Defenseman [2013 OA]
Pros: Uses his stick well. Decent skater. Has improved a lot since last season. Decent offensive talent.
Cons: Prone to force pass into traffic. Needs to improve positioning.
Potential: Top 6 defenseman
Here is my basic scouting of him from a year ago. Should have been drafted last year if it wasn't so freakin' deep.
