Cameron Critchlow has been invited to join the Oilers Development Camp this summer. While Cameron is a fine player in his own right, he is a winger and a smaller player. Not exactly on the WANTED list of the Edmonton Oilers right now. This is surely all about development and it seems every year they are inviting a few new players in hopes of filling out spots in their development system or the possibility of finding a gem.
As has been mentioned to me in twitterverse, it is possible this is a move for Cameron to come into OKC's development system with the Barons. Critchlow played for the Halifax Mooseheads this past year and had a huge playoff run. I am sure alot of new information will be coming out soon on this invite but in the mean time you can check out his stats and info at www.hockeydb.com
Critchlow spent time this year mentoring the young sensation and a projected Top 2 Player in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft "Nathan MacKinnon"
