Mantha, Strome, now this!

Chiarelli and Keith Gretzky love Niagara and the OHL in general. Keep taking our boys Oilers! Hoping Thomas is in their range next season!

And another year, all 31 teams in the NHL take a pass on Stephen Dhillon. Will be interested to see what team(s) invite him to camp this summer. See if anyone gives him a good long look.

As for last year's rookies, did anyone think ANY of these boys would get drafted? I think we'll see a couple of them (Castleman, and maybe Philip) could get opportunities as free agent to come to camp, but neither are likely to do much more than that. I think Castleman, Philip, Jones, Dhillon and Maksimov need to have great seasons this year. The team may not be going for it until next season, but these boys need to put up some above average numbers. Tired of watching our team limp, or back in to the playoffs. Let's hope for a 4th place, or better finish to the season this year. Probably being over optimistic...

I think that is possible. In the last half of the season they started to gel. Played over their heads at times. Got some confidence too.

They have to be feeling pretty positive for such a young team to even make the playoffs.

I was honestly surprised to see any IceDogs taken.. I thought maybe Maximov, but that, I thought, was it. So I was pretty thrilled to see Ben Jones taken as well. I think we can expect to see some improvement in all areas this upcoming season from last.

The one good thing about the Dogs is that scouts watch our older players that weren't drafted and quite often extend invites to training camps, and some subsequent signings - ie. Mantha, Maletta, Friesen, Aggozino, etc. Perhaps it's our development patterns that are slow in developing players in their draft year?

Let's see if that changes in the post Marty years as time goes on with a new plan.

Or they just aren't good enough to get drafted

At the end of the season I honestly thought we could finish as high as second (win the division) or as low as 6th next year

You might be right, but, I think that we will have to wait till next June to see what happens with players like Castleman and the other players from this past season.
This will be their second year in the OHL and the picture on them will be better with more games having been played.

Josh Norris taken in the 1st round - drafted two years ago by Marty. Heard that our head scout is close to the father so maybe we can see him in Niagara next year. Also local boy Kovacevic was drafted as well and was taken by the Ice Dogs a couple of years back.

Castleman with a September 15th birthday was the youngest player in the draft year. He had a great freshman year and hopefully can build upon it next year. At one point his ranking was higher than Jones but I think scouts want another year to rule out the "fluke factor" .

That was precisely my point on our young guns from last season. A productive season this year will help them big time.

Oilers just wrapped up their prospect camp. They always end with a big scrimmage/game. Maximov lead the way with 3 goals. Highlights should be up on the Oilers website.

Great news.

If he can play all season like he did for the last .... .what, 15 or 20 games. He could make the top 10 leading scorers in the league. Hope he can do it.
