The Oilers didn't have a 1st round pick this year, but Beau Akey (2nd round pick) is definitely going to prove teams wrong who passed on him.

Akey is off to a fantastic start in the OHL with the Barrie Colts where he has 3 points in 4 games. Akey will look to use the positive momentum of signing his first NHL contract to keep improving throughout the year.
