The Edmonton Oilers continue to lock up prospects, this time signing Ostap Safin to a three-year entry-level contract. Safin is currently playing in the QMJHL with the Saint John Sea Dogs, but could see some time on an amateur tryout with the Bakersfield Condors before the end of the year. Safin, selected in the fourth round of the 2017 draft, came over to North America after growing up in the Czech Republic and has found immediate success in the CHL. With 53 points in 56 games, he has excellent potential as a power forward for the Oilers, one who can skate exceptionally well for a player of his size. Now listed at 6’5″ 191-lbs, Safin protects the puck well in the offensive zone and tries to create chances for teammates.
