Now that he's completed his tenure with the University of North Dakota, Dillon Simpson is getting ready for his first training camp.
Simpson is looking to follow in his father's footsteps, former NHL forward Craig Simpson. Craig spent parts of six seasons with the Oilers, so Dillon was very familiar with the franchise even before Edmonton drafted him in 2011. "It's amazing to grow up in the Oilers culture with my dad coaching and playing here, knowing what they're all about, then coming in with this new generation of players," said Dillon Simpson. "Seeing how things have changed, how things have stayed the same. It's cool to be a part of it." Dillon had six goals and 23 points in 42 NCAA games in 2013-14. Jul 7 - 9:40 AM
