This is a very interesting pick. He was actually ahead of the Edmonton goalie Hart for the Hlinka U17 tourney which is a huge tourney & heavily scouted event. He's had a horrific year in Peterbough this year and really slid in the draft rankings. Word has it his confidence is still ok, but his mechanics needs some tweaking. If it is just mechanics that can be fixed over time. The Petes were a very young team this year, so maybe they had some team Defense problems. Either way I like this pick as it is a guy with cache' that has fallen down. We can maybe have something here in 5 years? Takes a long time for goalies lol.

Ugly, ugly OHL numbers. But some people think there is a player here still. Apparently the Matt Murray comparison was made, someone else who had awful numbers, but had a good toolset, had confidence, but needed to fine-tune the mechanics of his game. The thought-process is that with solid coaching and development there is a chance there could be a player here. Not sure I buy the theory, but I guess is sometimes works.

I know the strategy is to pick one goalie for draft. I think it's a longshot he ever makes the NHL, but I guess we'll see.

Wells had a very good year, and is having a great playoffs for the Peterborough Petes. He adds to it by scoring an empty-net goal to complete the sweep ...

...Wells has signed his entry level NHL conract...

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/edmonton-oilers-sign-goal tender-dylan-wells-entry-level-contract/

...hope he can adapt to the pro game well....the Oilers seem to have even less goaltending depth through the organization than they do on defense....I expect Wells to be in the AHL in the coming season, pending who is left after the expansion draft and this summer's free agent signings

Do the Oilers have an ECHL affiliate next season? Is it still Norfolk? I would guess he is there.

Nick Ellis will carry the load in Bakersfield. I'd guess Shane Starrett likely is backing him up, though it could be a more experience vet.

Totally off topic here but the weirdest thing is that I used to work under a person in upper management by the name of Nick Ellis, and I just recently hired a guy named Dylan Wells. I'm not even making this up.

You forgot to mention the guy that works in your mailroom, Zach Nagelvoort.

I think he may have been in accounts payables, but I could be wrong...

Or accounting... We had a guy that I nick named Beansie. Because the accounts were responsible for counting the "beans"? Bean counters....? Get it?

Anyway, there was another guy that I nicknamed Wieners..... Him and Beansie used to take lunch together. Wieners and Beans? Get it? Yeah, they didn't like me all that much...

https://www.nhl.com/predators/news/predators-sign-affiliatio n-agreement-with-echls-norfolk-admirals/c-289278524

....the Oilers sold their interest in the Admirals last year...sounds like it wasn't a very good relationship between the Admirals and Oilers this past season...

...probably would make sense to have the ECHL affiliate closer to Bakersfield...the previous Nashville ECHL affiliate was in Cincinnatti, but I believe the arena in Concinnatti is being repurposed to no longer support hockey

I was looking at goalies just now and realized that Dylan Wells got in his first NHL game this year for Chicago, playing a period in relief in a 4-0 loss. He allowed one goal on 13 shots, good for a 0.923 SV%.

It's absolutely mind-boggling that he was playing in the NHL this year. His last season with the Oilers was 2019-20, when he played 7 games for the Condors with 3.77 GAA and .878 Sv%, and 10 games with the ECHL Thunder where he got bombed for 4.98 GAA and .871 Sv%. He then has a year off from playing entirely (he may have been injured?), before somehow landing a minor league deal in the Chicago sytem.

He picked up where he left off for the Blackhawks' feeder system with 3 games for the Chicago Wolves in the AHL (3.01, .893) and 43 games with the ECHL Norfolk Admirals (3.59, 0.895). He started this year too on a minor-league deal, but by November the 'Hawks had seen enough and gave him another two-way deal and called him up. Three days later, there he was, manning the nets for the 'Hawks against the Jets.

Good for Dylan! Nice to get a cup of coffee, although I suspect there won't be another. He was a throw-in to the Max Domi deal late in the year, and his three games with the AHL Texas Stars went...poorly. 5.35 GAA and .839 Sv%. He's a free agent now, so I suspect he's not going to land another major league deal.

He looked good in the 2 games he playing the ECHL this year in Boise. To be fair, Boise just had the best season of any ECHL team ever and made every goalie that played for them look good this year.
