EDMONTON – Dartmouth men's hockey rising sophomore Will Graber will be participating in the upcoming Edmonton Oilers Development Camp starting this weekend.

Graber will skate as part of Team Messier during the five-day camp, the team announced Friday morning.

In total, 36 prospects — including the 6-foot-5 Graber — will attend the Oilers' camp that is to be held at Jasper Arena.

In his first collegiate season with the Big Green, Graber proved to be one of the top new players, not only in Hanover, but also in ECAC Hockey. A skilled player with good size, Graber began the season as a forward before injuries forced the coaching staff to move him back to the blueline, where he scored twice and posted a three-point night in his first game on defense.

In all, Graber finished the regular season third on the team in scoring with 19 points and led the team with 14 assists. His point total was the most by any of the Big Green's 11 rookies this season and ninth among all ECAC Hockey rookies in scoring in 2016-17.

“I am very excited for the opportunity to attend the Oilers Development Camp,” the Broomfied, Colorado, native said. “It will be a great chance to continue to develop as a hockey player and learn what it takes to succeed at the highest level.”
