By selecting Ostap Safin 115th overall in the 2017 NHL Draft, the Edmonton Oilers help the player inch closer to his life-long dream.
For Safin, playing in the NHL has been a driving goal all his life.
"(When did it) become a goal? When I was born," said Safin. "The first time I went on the ice it became my dream."
The big, skilled Czech winger is ready to take the next step in his career thanks to the Oilers.
"It's a great feeling, so I'm enjoying it," he said. "It's a great feeling to be here and be a part of this organization."
