RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Linus Omark.
At one point, Omark was thought to be a building block for the Oilers, but his uneven play and mental makeup clouded his future in Edmonton. Omark was even rumored to be on the trading block at the June draft, but nothing happened. He even took to Twitter to plea for a trade, but the club chose to qualify him as a restricted free agent instead. Omark was slated to begin the season in the AHL, but instead signed a one-year deal with Zug of the Swiss league. This could end his NHL career.
Omark had five goals in 51 games for the Oilers last season but is best known for his showboating shootout goal against the Lightning that may have rubbed a few people the wrong way. Omark has great hands and good skating ability but will need to show more consistency to remain in the NHL on a full-time basis.
