RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Pitlick has all the tools to be a productive forward at the NHL level. He has soft hands, a plus shot, good size and sees the ice well. His first season in the AHL wasn't eye opening, but it wasn't terrible either as he had seven goals and 16 assists. He should be no worse than a third-line player when he does break into the NHL. He'll return to the AHL for 2012-13.
Pitlick is known as a pure goal scorer with great offensive potential and in his first season in the WHL, he did not disappoint with 27 goals and 62 points in 56 games. He is unlikely to begin the season with Edmonton, but will probably take the next step in his progression and play with Oklahoma City of the AHL.
Another high upside player in the Oilers system. Pitlick has been described as a pure goal scorer, but disappointed last season with only 11 goals in 38 games for the University of Minnesota. The Oilers will send him to the WHL this season to find out where his career path will lead to.
