EDMONTON, AB – The Edmonton Oilers took Tyler Tullio with the 126th Pick in the 5th Round of the 2020 NHL Draft.
Tullio and the Generals started the 2019-20 season off as good as it could get. They were perfect in their first nine games. Tullio posted 6-5-11 in that stretch showing that they were ready for another run in the Eastern Conference.
Tullio’s emergence was a big reason for the hot early start. He showed that not only can he finish, he can drive the play on his line on his own. But this season, he proved he can play anywhere in the lineup. One game he would line up at center and be effective. Another game he would line up on the wing and find ways to contribute. But then he was out killing penalties too. His versatility has garnered attention and he will be sought after early on day two of the draft.
