Dimitri Samorukov Update

  Courtesy of GuelphStorm.com   I had the luxury of watching a couple of Guelph games over the weekend – Saturday vs. Owen Sound and Sunday vs. London. While I was getting a good look at draft eligibles this year I was also taking notes on Oilers prospect Dmitri “Dima” Samorukov and went back over the tape.
