Pitlick Signed to Entry Level Contract
The Edmonton Oilers have announced the signing of forward Tyler Pitlick to a three year entry level contract. Pitlick, 19, from Minneapolis, Minnesota (also home to the great Charlie Conway) was selected 31st overall by the Oilers in the 2010 entry draft.
Pitlick had a rough year for the Medicine Hat Tigers, suffering three separate injuries, including a broken ankle at the beginning of March. Despite being banged up, the 6’2”, 194 pound centre put up 62 points (27G, 35A) in 56 games.
The Tiger’s and fellow Oiler prospect Tyler Bunz await the return of Pitlick in the WHL playoffs, where they currently lead the Red Deer Rebels and potential 2011 1st overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 3-0.
