Feature: Edmonton Oilers Goalie Prospect Dylan Wells Makes Remarkable Comeback

The Edmonton Sun

When the Edmonton Oilers drafted Dylan Wells a year ago, the response was pretty universal.

Why?

The kid had no good numbers to speak of, just a losing record, a bloated 4.59 goals-against average and a shaky .871 save percentage.

Hardly the kind of statistics that had anyone thinking Wells could be Edmonton’s goalie of the future.

A year later, it’s starting to look like one of the best fifth-round picks the Oilers have ever spent.


Wells not only pulled out of his tailspin, he’s soared to heights very few expected of him, except maybe the guys who drafted him.

The 9-13-3 record improved to 33-15-4 (third most wins in the Ontario Hockey League). The goals against fell to 3.07. The save percentage climbed to .916 (fourth best in the league). He was a finalist for OHL goalie of the year and was the Peterborough Petes’ nominee for player of the year.
