Martin Marincin: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Marincin is likely to begin his pro career this season with Oklahoma City of the AHL. Marincin and Justin Schultz are considered to be the Oilers' top two defensive prospects. Schultz is expected to start this season in Edmonton, but Marincin requires seasoning to advance the mental aspects of the game.
Marincin signed a three-year entry level deal with the Oilers in April, and is slated to begin his pro career with Oklahoma City of the AHL. It's unlikely that Marincin would be called up by the Oilers this season as he still needs time to grow into his 6-foot-4 frame, but the talent is there and he could make some noise before long.
Marincin was taken by the Oilers in the second round of this past June's draft. He is the defintion as a project as he is 6'4" but only 190 lbs. He will need time to fill out his frame and at 19 years of age the Oilers will give him time to do so.
