What's Held Omark Back

by Staff Writer / Edmonton Oilers

Edmonton Oilers President of Hockey Operations, Kevin Lowe, talked to and addressed several topics including newly signed forward, Linus Omark.

Lowe went on to explain why Omark may have a good chance to make the roster and what’s held him back from the NHL thus far.

“I mean, Linus is not a young guy anymore,” said Lowe. “He’s a pretty seasoned pro, he’s a pretty determined guy and he’s awfully skilled and I like that in him. He wants to play in the National Hockey League and I think, to this point, one of the only things that’s held him back is his ability to push himself in an overall two-way game. But, he’s more than capable of it.”
