FEATURE: Slepyshev continues to impress, finding chemistry with linemates

by Chris Wescott / EdmontonOilers.com Head Writer

EDMONTON, AB - There are times when Anton Slepyshev looks like he's going to dump the puck in, but then just takes off with it, bursting down the wing. There have been flashes of the kind of pace he can play with, and as his confidence grows those flashes become a more frequent reminder of the potential of the player.

Oilers Captain Connor McDavid said after the game in Anaheim a couple weeks ago that Slepyshev was "unbelievable." It was the start of an upward trend for the 23-year-old third-round pick.
