FEATURE: Holland on season pause, Broberg, Slepyshev, NHL Draft


EDMONTON, AB -  Oilers President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Ken Holland conducted a media availability via video conference on Tuesday, discussing a variety of topics.

Holland first addressed the hockey club's collective sadness over having to put their season on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, given their success since New Year's Eve when they beat the New York Rangers in a high-scoring 7-5 decision.

That offensive outburst was the start of a 30-game stretch prior to the pause that saw the team post a 17-8-5 record, which vaulted them into second place in the Pacific Division, three points back of Vegas and four points up on Calgary. 

"That's the disappointment that we have this pause in the season," Holland said. "Everybody was excited to see what we could accomplish... From Dec. 31 on, we've played at a high level."

Of course, the 2019-20 campaign has not been cancelled and the NHL is exploring all options for resumption and completion. One positive of the extensive delay, Holland said, would be having a fully healthy roster to deploy.

"You're going to have full lineups with excited, motivated athletes," he said. "All the players would love the opportunity to finish the season... If we've got to play hockey in July and August, we'll play hockey in July and August."

Holland also addressed some more immediate Oilers business, specifically the plan for 2019 first-round selection Philip Broberg, his desire to bring Anton Slepyshev back to Edmonton, and the team's strategy for the eventual 2020 NHL Draft.

Regarding Broberg, selected eighth overall last June, Holland said he would like the budding blueliner to attend Oilers training camp in the fall and then likely play another season with Skellefteå in the Swedish Hockey League.

"(Philip) feels there's a real opportunity to play a bigger role in Skellefteå next year," said Holland, who has spoken with Broberg's Europen and North American representation over the past few weeks.

"I'm hoping at the start of next season that Philip can come over, be involved in training camp and maybe play some pre-season games for him to get the experience. Maybe he can force his way onto the team... but he's going to be in Skellefteå if the choice is Skellefteå or (AHL) Bakersfield, because he's comfortable and happy there."

The 18-year-old participated in Oilers Development Camp right after he was drafted, but he stayed in Sweden in September to start the season with Skellefteå rather than come back to Edmonton for NHL training camp.

Holland noted Broberg would still be eligible to play for Sweden at next year's World Junior Championship, which will be held in Edmonton and Red Deer. The dynamic defenceman helped his national team win the bronze medal at this year's tournament.

Holland also referenced prior success stories with Swedish players from his time in Detroit, saying the Red Wings kept Henrik Zetterberg, Johan Franzen and Tomas Holmstrom in the SHL until they were ready to claim permanent NHL roster spots.

Slepyshev, meanwhile, has played for CSKA Moscow in the KHL the past two seasons after spending three years in the Oilers organization. The 25-year-old winger was drafted 88th overall by Edmonton in 2013 and has 10 goals with 13 assists in 102 career NHL games.

The Russian also scored three goals during Edmonton's 2017 playoff run, and is coming off a strong season in Moscow that saw him produce 18 goals and 27 assists in 54 games. The Oilers still control Slepyshev's NHL rights.

Holland said he's had recent conversations with Slepyshev's agent and watched him play in Russia over the Christmas holidays alongside Oilers Director of Pro Scouting Archie Henderson.

"We would like to sign him," Holland said. "I have made an offer and I'm waiting to hear what decision Anton has made."

On the amateur side, the 2020 NHL Draft was supposed to be held in Montreal in late June, but that event has been postponed. The League says the location, timing and format of the Draft and Draft Lottery will be announced when details are finalized.

The National Football League informed its teams on Monday that the 2020 NFL Draft, scheduled for later this month, will be fully virtual.

NHL Central Scouting released its FINAL RANKINGS on Wednesday and Holland said his staff, led by Director of Amateur Scouting Tyler Wright and Chief Amateur Scout Bob Green, will be ramping up activity, including interviewing prospects via video calls.

"We're as ready as you can be given what's happened," said Holland, noting two key NHL Draft prep events have been cancelled - the World Under-18 Championship and the NHL Scouting Combine.

The Oilers have the 20th-overall selection based on the current NHL standings.
