Our boy Ostap Safin is playing on Sportsnet today for the Mooseheads. Only his 15th game and its the final day of the regular season. Must have been hurt.

This guy looks good and should graduate to AHL next year.

Dmitri Samorukov has been on fire the past couple of months too. 30 pts in 30 games to finish out the season.

Yeah he might quietly becoming one of our top D prospects, if his skating is quick enough, he'll have a good chance. Needs at least a year or hopefully two in the A.

Don't worry. The current buzzword for Oilers management is "over-ripen". There will be a concerted effort to play Samorukov in the minors as long as there's no buzz around the player that might make it a PR coup to bring him to the big team early and to clear out any veterans that might compete with him for a spot...

The bigger issue will be the guy they draft in the top ten this year. I expect we're going to see the team say when they pick him and sign him that they expect he's probably playing in junior again, but they'll wait to see him in camp. In camp, we'll see him get a push - playing with NHL players like Draisaitl and McDavid. The team will talk about how they're excited to see him so much more pro-ready than they expected. The media guys will point out that hey - what does it hurt to have him stick around and play a few NHL games...he'll get some real big-league experience! The Oilers will basically suggest that he's forced their hands and really surprised the team with how he's played through camp, and then somehow, there's a spot waiting for him as the season starts. He'll turn out to be a teenager playing in a man's league and look completely exposed in a short stint with the Oilers and they'll send him down after playing him in 6-9 games...and we'll all hope that they've not damaged his confidence too much.

The worse scenario of course is if he scores more than 3-4 points in his 6-9 games...and the Oilers decide they need to keep him until Christmas instead...

Looks like Bouchard will be playing Samorukov next round? Looks like 1-4 will beat 5-8 in their conference. Bouchard is on #1, Samorukov on #4 Guelph Storm.

There is no questioning his ability. But it is his physical aspect that people question. The problem that I am coming across is people are looking at goals and assists and think they are getting the complete profile of a player. With D man is worse. If you look at Andy Delmore's numbers coming out of JR you question why he was not drafted. The answer became obvious when he turned pro. Great wheels but zero physical aspect to his game and limited D IQ. Not saying Sam is the sameway--but from what I have read and seen he may need 3 to 4 years in the AHL to sort out that part of his game

Is physical stuff an issue for Samorukov? I haven't seen much of him, but coaches did just vote him best defensive D and best hitter in his OHL conference. Must be at least decent physically. Oilers apparently were getting a lot of calls on him in trade talks leading up to the deadline if insiders are to be believed.

IQ, no idea there. Definitely doesn't seem like a kid that is going to instantly make a jump though. Looking forward to seeing that he can do in the A.

there is more to just being physical than hitting. Once he tosses a hit he takes himself out of the play.

Then the best defensive vote by the coaches was way off base? i have no personal proof to argue really aside from what the OHL coaches said. Guess I'll have to see for myself as he moves up the ranks.

This is where this came from just to note:

Best Body Checker:

Western Conference:
1. Dmitri Samorukov, Guelph Storm (40)
2. Kelton Hatcher, Sarnia Sting (15)
3. Justin Murray, Saginaw Spirit (12)


Best Penalty Killer:

Western Conference:
1. Liam Foudy, London Knights (20) tied –
1. Ryan McGregor, Sarnia Sting (20)
3. Dmitri Samorukov, Guelph Storm (19)


Best Defensive Defenceman:

Western Conference:
1. Dmitri Samorukov, Guelph Storm (34)
2. Jordan Sambrook, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (18)
3. Justin Murray, Saginaw Spirit (17)


Gotta figure the kid is doing something right defensively and physically to get this attention from coaches. Likely he was the guy going head to head vs their best offensive guys through the season and earning some respect, rather than just being a guy running around looking for hits putting himself out of position constantly.

Mr. Kreys isn't doing much for his credibility today.

I appreciate the content - always interesting to discuss prospects critically, but have you watched these guys much? Or are you just making uninformed statements, while writing off 19 and 20 year olds completely?

first when it comes to numbers. Just posting numbers means nothing to me. Most numbers that come from JR ranks are based more upon opinions than actual facts. I know enough about advance stats to know the first question to ask is "show your work" or "methodology used". and that is the starting point of the discussions when it comes to players when using numbers over eye tests

And yes I have seen him play and was not impressed

Numbers alone don't mean everything...but I'm not seeing anything else sourced by you either.

Which of the guys you've slammed today - Niemelainen, Samorukov or Bouchard - are you saying you watched play? How many times have you seen them? Have you seen them in person? Or just watched an occasional game on TV with them in it?

What are you using to evaluate these players outside of stats (and of course, coach's voting)?

Samorukov is a stud. If you've seen some of the recent highlights of this guy, the Oilers have two absolute horses on the way up in Bouch and Sam. Super talented, shifty skater and a pro physique already. Dude is blue chip.

True, but I'd rather have to hold a guy back from being physical than have to give him a push. Like pushing on a rope.

Well boxes CHECKED!!! 2 future Norris winners right here boys, no need to solidify our D.

Kidding aside, these are 2 pretty good looking D prospects! When's the last time we had even 1 guy look this promising, let alone 2?

I wonder what Button is saying about Bouchard these days considering he didn't have him ranked as a top prospect anymore. All Bouchard is doing it leading the entire OHL in playoff scoring as a dman.

Reading that again, maybe Petry’s issue was that he wasn’t asking MacT for $7MM per year?! If only...

LOL. I'd argue that neither Petry or Schultz truly held a candle to Bouch or Sam as prospects.

These two are as legitimate as they come.

Well Ethan Bear was on a good tear in his last year .. Bouchard will have to up his foot speed to be NHL effective, as do most prospects. I think the Russian kid will be good, I watched him in the juniors, his skating has really improved.

Yikes. London about to lose game 7 after being up 3-0 in the series vs the Storm.

5-3 for the storm now with 12 to go in the 3rd.

Haven't been watching, but people are saying Samurukov has been on a mission in the series. Goal and an assist tonight.

Bouchard gets to take part in a 3-0 series choke. I think he's ready to be an Oiler next year.

Guess he can hang with the AHL boys now and at least be there in practice for the run.

Interesting - Samorukov is only four months older than Bouchard, despite being drafted a year earlier. Some pretty decent numbers this year for both guys:

Samorukov - 59GP 10-35-45 Playoffs (so far) 11GP 4-7-11
Bouchard - 45GP 16-37-53 Playoffs 11GP 4-17-21

A right shot and a left shot...could be a good pairing in Bakersfield pretty soon, with both guys having a decent shot at making the pros.

I think Samorukov might be NHL ready before Bouchard, at least the physical, and defensive side. Both will need to up their foot speed, as I recall from Bouchard's Oiler stint, and a brief look at Samorukov in a preseason game (and some junior games), but then you could say all our present D (except for #25) need quicker feet. Ideally 1 to 2 years in Bakersfield, and summer training essential to get quicker.

And a hat trick and 1 assist for Samorukov in a 4-0 win to keep his teams hopes alive. Now down 3-2 in their series.

Samorukov has 8-10-18 in 16 games in the playoffs now.

No Cups

Oh lord please please let these two guys pan out. Along with Caleb Jones in 2-3 years we will be like Nashville was...except with a 25-26 year old Connor McDavid.


Bob Marley and the (Hartford) Wailers.

2 more A's for Samorukov, as his team wins 5-1 to force a game 7.

Samorukov's team completes the comeback and win game 7. Samorukov with 1A in the game. Rough night for Ryan McLeod as his team was eliminted, -3 on the night, and sounds like he made some unfortunate giveaways. But, good news for him is, it looks like the Oilers want to sign him to an ELC and get him to Bakersfield ASAP.


John Shannon @JSportsnet
Oilers are hopeful to have First Round Pick Ryan McLeod's name on a contract...and on a plane to California...to join AHL Bakersfield in the Calder Cup Playoffs. McLeod's OHL team lost in G7 tonight, to Guelph.



Samorukov moves on to play the Ottawa 67's who are 12-0 so far in the playoffs.

Samorukov seems to be a guy that elevates big time when needed. I think the Oilers have legit dman coming.
- Jones will probably be on the team next season.
- Bouchard isn't playing much in the AHL right now because he just got there but in limited time, all he does it put up points. 4 points in 2 games will barely getting ice time. Plus OHL dman of the year.I think he sees some AHL time next year but he will be on the team shortly.
- Samorukov seems to be getting better and better and when the games get tougher, he gets better. Will need AHL time but could be on the team in 2 years.
