BAKERSFIELD, CA - Oilers 2020 first-round draft pick Dylan Holloway will finish the season with the Bakersfield Condors after signing an amateur tryout contract (ATO) on Monday.
The forward from Bragg Creek, Alberta signed a three-year entry-level contract (ELC) with Edmonton on April 16 after completing his sophomore season with the University of Wisconsin Badgers, scoring 11 goals and 24 assists in 23 games. Holloway's ELC will start in the 2021-22 campaign.
The 19-year-old, selected 14th overall by Edmonton last October, ranked fifth in NCAA scoring and fourth in points per game among players who made 10 or more appearances.
Holloway was named to the All-Big Ten First Team and was picked as the Hockey Commissioners Association National Player of the Month for February after scoring 17 points in eight games.
The centre/left-winger was also selected as a top-10 finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, given to the most outstanding player of the year in NCAA men's hockey. His Wisconsin teammate, Montreal Canadiens prospect Cole Caufield, ended up winning the award.
On the international stage this season, Holloway scored one goal and one assist in six games for Team Canada at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship in Edmonton.
The Condors (22-13-0-1) will play three road games against the Henderson Silver Knights (23-12-0-0) this week on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday to close out the regular season.
