Edmonton Oilers adds new scouts

Ken Holland has dipped a trusted well to add to its staff by hiring two former Detroit Red Wings staff to participate in the Oilers scout department.

Tyler Wright was from 2013 to 2019 director of Amateur Scouting for the Red Wings among the Netherlands. He was previously with the Columbus Blue Jackets organization. Wright was also drafted by the Oilers 12th overall in 1991, although he played only 41 games with the club.

The Red Wings saw some success in the draw with Wright at the helm, finding good players with mid-to-late first-round picks such as Dylan Larkin (15th overall in 2014), Anthony Mantha (20th overall in 2013), and Dennis Cholowski (20th overall in 2016). Beyond the first round, the Red Wings had a few steals in Andreas Athanasiou (110th overall in 2012) and Filip Hronek (53rd overall in 2016) in the Wright era.

Also participating in the staff of Holland is veteran professional scout Archie Henderson. Henderson, who worked in the career of AHL, served as a pro-scout for Washington capitals from 1995 to 2003 and then entered into Detroit in Detroit in 2015.
