One Oilers prospect's season came to an end at the Memorial Cup, while we recapped Jesse Puljujarvi's rookie year and launched our draft coverage. Here's what happened the week of May 21-27.
BEAR'S SEASON ENDS
Defensive prospect Ethan Bear saw his stellar season come to an end at the Memorial Cup.
Head Coach Todd McLellan appeared on Oilers Now with Bob Stauffer Wednesday, touching on a number of topics. Two of those we featured in Inside the Oilers were Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' need to play with a little more risk and the team's process moving forward with Andrej Sekera's injury.
PULJUJARVI'S FIRST SEASON
Puljujarvi was the Oilers' top selection in the 2016 NHL Draft. As we look back on his first season in the organization, it was one with ups and downs. We published a feature on his rookie campaign, with comments from President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Peter Chiarelli.
The 2017 NHL Draft is right around the corner, so we launched our Draft Coverage Presented by Sport Chek. This week, we profiled two potential first-round picks and took a look back at Chiarelli's first draft with the club.
Next week we continue our Draft Coverage Presented by Sport Chek with more features and prospect profiles. We also preview the NHL Scouting Combine with our Combine Primer on Monday, and will be on location at the event in Buffalo, NY on Friday and Saturday (June 2-3).
