Riley Stillman Drafted to the Florida Panthers
The Oshawa Generals would like to congratulate Riley Stillman on being drafted to Florida Panthers. Riley was drafted 114th overall in the NHL 2016 Draft.
The son of former NHL player Cory Stillman, Riley is a draft with outstanding bloodlines. The eight-teen year old is not enormous, but he plays a large game, and he quickly became one of the OHL’s best open ice hitters.
“I think Riley has emerged as a leader on our team. Florida is getting a very solid player, who is both sound defensively & offensively.” – Roger Hunt, Oshawa Generals Vice president and General Manger.
Drafted 2014, round 4 #63 overall by the Oshawa Generals in the OHL priority selection. Riley was a six-teen year old on the powerful 2015 Memorial Cup Championship team; throughout the historic season he got the chance to play nine games in total.
Last season Riley had more space to grow and quickly became one of the Generals top defense-man. With 62 games played Riley made use of his ice time to improve and excel. He scored 6 goals for the Gens and had 15 assists by the end of the season. He also took on a leadership role, and his coaches recognized it by naming him an alternate captain.
We are very proud to have Riley as a part of Gens Nation and the Florida Panthers will be lucky to have him.
