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."
