Dylan Holloway has somewhat seen the possibilities of what his life could be in the NHL. Playing forward for the Edmonton Oilers in the Playoffs at the Stanley Cup, Holloway impressed with Edmonton coach Jay Woodcraft. He’s in it for the long haul, wanting the full NHL package.
Holloway will be in his breakaway season this year when it starts. Although, he has raised his stakes with a stellar hat trick against the Vancouver Canucks in a preseason game. His stats are the best at present for Oilers in terms of 4 goals, 6 points, and 15 on-target shots.
Dylan Holloway has skills that’ll take him places
“Once you get a little taste, you just want the whole thing now. I’d say I’m really motivated to try and crack the lineup this year and then help the Oilers for a long playoff run” said Dylan, as the 21-year-old looks to make his mark in the NHL as he performed his best in training and games that followed.
Edmonton coach Woodcraft was all praises for the kid as he sees Holloway as a gem that the Oilers have to cut and polish to make him a superstar. Woodcraft states – “He’s got the raw materials of an NHL hockey player. He’s big (6-foot-1, 203 pounds), and he’s strong. The more Dylan plays at this level, the more he feels comfortable and the more he shows his teammates and his coaching staff where he’s at.”
Dylan Holloway was blown away by the atmosphere and energy in the rink. He can’t wait to get the full feel of it and live it out. “The energy in the rink was insane, Rogers Place was absolutely electric. The whole city of Edmonton was electric”. Dylan’s performances have thrown his way some amazing opportunities to play alongside players like Leon Draisaitl and Zach Hyman.
