    How is the OKs' attendance this season given such a bad year?

    I'd have to figure out the average. Smallest crowd was on September 29th vs. Lethbridge (5074). Largest was a sellout vs. Prince Albert on December 2nd (18,102).

    On Saturday, David Kope scored the lone goal, with Wyatt McLeod and Davis Murray adding the assists, but the Oil Kings' empire was set in anarchy by the Hitmen 7-1. Josh Dechaine (L 12-14-5) made 12 saves on 15 shots before being pulled for the second period. Boston Bilous made 22 saves on 26 shots over the final 40 minutes. The three stars were the departing overagers: 1st star - Colton Kehler (who played his 200th WHL game), 2nd star - Tomas Soustal and 3rd star - Travis Child. Shots were 41-28 for Calgary. PP was 0/1, PK 7/9. Faceoffs were tied 29-29.

    The WHL Bantam Draft Lottery goes tomorrow at 11 AM. The Oil Kings will either pick first or second, depending on the lottery.

    Kootenay Ice won the lottery but they only move up to 2nd. Oil Kings retain 1st overall pick.

    First 1st overall in team history.

    Are there any high level prospects coming through this year?

    From everything I'd heard, Lambos was supposed to be the first pick. Wonder why the Oil Kings went a different direction. Pretty happy with Lethbridge's pick though.

    Guenther looks like a decent prospect.

    103 points in 30 games in the CSSHL. Can't find many scouting reports, it doesn't appear he's got all that much interest from scouts.

    Described by one poster as a decent prospect.... To go first he'd better be a terrific prospect. It looks like the OKs went a bit off the board. If so why not trade down a few spots to grab their guy and get another player or a draft choice? Maybe my inference is wrong, I don't know. I'll tune into the Pipeline Show or check the tweets of reporters who follow the OKs.

    Please do so, I'm literally going off stats and a couple videos. Scouting reports aren't easy to come by.

    For a team that has been starved of offensive production, this looks like a decent pick. Seems a couple picks off the board though with a stud D in Lambos available and widely expected to go first overall.

    Yeah, that seems to confirm my opinion. He'd likely be available at 5/6 so trade down. Pipeline Show for me Saturday.

    I'm seeing a few scouts say there wasn't really a consensus and that Guenther has first overall chops.

    He apparently played a lot with Matthew Savoie who is considered to be the next phenom and is backing it up. I'm definitely wondering now.

    If he was #1 worthy. It's looking like the Oil Kings reached here.
