Observations:

July 2017- In the fourth round of the 2017 NHL entry draft the Edmonton Oilers came up with a steal. Snagging Ostap Safin 115th overall. Safin’s skill set could’ve had him selected in the first two rounds of the draft. Safin is a big body that skates extremely well. Not only is his foot speed great, but he’s also very agile. He can make plays in tight and has a quick release. Safin played in the Czech Republic this year on HC Sparta Praha U-20 team where he was able to put up six goals and 12 assists in 24 games. Many scouts had Safin going higher in the draft, but due to consistency concerns he fell to the fourth round. In the 2017 CHL import draft, Safin went 53rd overall to the Saint John Seadogs. He’s expected to play for them in the 2017-18 season. Oiler fans have a lot to smile about with this kid.  Spencer Pomoty
