Observations:

 

September 2013 – Oilers head coach, Dallas Eakins, has been very impressed with Tyler Pitlick, a second round prospect from the 2010 draft, during Edmonton’s 2013-14 training camp. Pitlick has shown great physicality and a strong work ethic that could fit nicely into the Oilers’ future bottom-six. After scoring 10 points in 44 games for the Oklahoma City Barons in his sophomore pro season, Pitlick doesn’t possess much upside at the NHL level but he’s going to be a difficult player to play against. Brendan Ross

 

 

January 2013 - Pitlick will miss the remainder of the season after tearing ligaments in his knee. Pitlick had just one goal in 32 games for Oklahoma City after posting 23 points in 63 games in 2011-12. Pitlick projects as a checking unit/energy guy when he reaches Edmonton. Rich Dillon


July 2012 – Tyler Pitlick has the size and skill set to be considered a safe bet to one day wear an NHL jersey.  In his only season in the WHL, he potted 62 points in 56 games for Medicine Hat before turning pro.  In the AHL, he had 23 points in 62 games as a rookie in a defensive role.  While Pitlick thrives in such a role, the junior numbers show that there may be an upside for greater things.  Once he fills out he will be north of 200 pounds and with his ability to play a physical game could turn into a very nice complimentary scoring line player.  Plus, if he finds a way to climb the depth chart as a centerman in Edmonton, he could be flanked by some superstar wingers.

Fantasy Outlook: D+

 

Low NHL upside but a safe bet to be in the NHL one day.  Destined to be a third or fourth line energy player.
