Edmonton Oilers General Manager Craig MacTavish is in London, Ontario to take in the Memorial Cup and watch one of the team’s prospects on the Edmonton Oil Kings, Mitch Moroz.
MacTavish was on Sportsnet’s broadcast of the Memorial Cup last night and commented on Moroz.
“He’s had a terrific year, I think he had 15 goals the year before, he’s had 35 goals this year,” MacTavish said. “He’s obviously a guy we’ve watched extensively playing in Edmonton.”
“Very tough,” he continued. “He’s definitely a sheriff at this level. We’re all excited in Edmonton, the Oilers that is, to get Mitch in our organization. We think he’s going to be a very bright spot in our future.”
Moroz had 63 points (35-28-63) in 70 games during the regular season. In 21 playoff games, Moroz has posted 19 points (6-13-19).
