Daniil Chayka (6-3, 187), D, Guelph (OHL)

It would not be right if we did not include a defenceman on this list considering Edmonton has only taken defencemen in the past with this pick.

Daniil Chayka is a big guy at 6’3″ and at just 18 years old there definitely is no question that he could get bigger. The team does have a pretty good blue line and Chayka would be a nice addition to it later down the line.

Take a look at his rankings:

Ranked #30 by CONSOLIDATED RANKING
Ranked #39 by FCHOCKEY
Ranked #23 by NEUTRAL ZONE
Ranked #44 by MCKEEN’S HOCKEY
Ranked #5 by NHL CENTRAL SCOUTING (EU Skaters)
Ranked #24 by SPORTSNET’S
Ranked #32 by RECRUIT SCOUTING
Ranked #25 by DOBBERPROSPECTS
Ranked #29 by DRAFT PROSPECTS HOCKEY
Ranked #39 by SMAHT SCOUTING
Ranked #13 by THE PUCK AUTHORITY
Ranked #19 by TSN/McKenzie

Chayka is a player that could get taken anywhere in this draft, a lot of different platforms have him going right around where the Oilers are picking, so if he is available maybe the team should add him to their organization.
