Frank Musil did not know that the Edmonton Oilers were selecting his son with the first pick of the second round.

What makes this story interesting is that Frank is a scout with the Oilers. "They didn’t tell me who they were picking," Frank Musil said. "It came as a surprise, which made it that much sweeter. Not that I needed any more stress at this point in my life. I have to say I was more nervous today than in any game as a player. He's at the starting line now and hopefully he'll get there. Depends on how fast he runs." Frank finished his career with the Oilers. David is projected to be a defensive defenseman with a big body and long reach, something every team in the NHL has a need for.

The Edmonton Oilers selected David Musil with the first pick in Round 2.

David Musil is this year’s Mr. Dependable. Son of former NHLer Frank Musil, David is a strong, physical defenseman who sticks to his game. Although David has the ability to chip in some offense, scouts are confident he will not be expected to contribute offensively in the NHL. Rather, NHL scouts covet David’s long reach, which makes it almost impossible to get around the 6-4 prodigy. Considering how tight the margin of error is in the NHL, especially come playoff time, a defensive defenseman like David Musil becomes especially attractive.
