RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ryan Martindale.
Martindale's reputation is of someone with plenty of skill, but little commitment to do what it takes to play in the NHL. That certainly seemed to be the case last season as he only had six goals in 34 games in the ECHL and failed to light the lamp in 16 games for Oklahoma City of the AHL. He's going to have to show more if he wants to play in Edmonton.
Martindale had 34 goals and 83 points for the Ottawa 67s of the OHL last season so the scoring ability is there, but still, he will only be 20 years of age in October and is at least another season or two from having a legitimate shot at making the Oilers. Martindale is not considered one of the top prospects in the organization.
At 19 years of age, Martindale has played three seasons for the Ottawa 67s of the OHL and scored 51 goals. Martindale possesses some upside but natural progression would lead you to believe he will have to prove himself in the AHL before getting a shot with Edmonton.
