What Happened To... Part III: Liam Reddox

Tyler Hill@@tyler_hillVPAnalyst IAugust 14, 2008

As I continue my look at players who should be in the big league by now, I look at one of my personal friends, Edmonton Oilers prospect, Liam Reddox.

A steal in the 2004 NHL entry draft, Reddox was not taken until the fourth round, 112th overall, and he was a steal, Reddox had 32 goals and 32 assists which add up to 64 points with the Wellington Dukes in the OPJHL in only 45 games.

In the proceeding year Reddox had 31 goals and 33 assists in 68 games with the Peterbough Petes (OHL).  These are his stats from before he was drafted.

In his next two years with the Petes, he had 55 goals and 146 points in 136 games, solid numbers at any level.

During the 2006-’07 season, Reddox played with the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL.

He collected only 26 points in 70, but at this time he had only the NHL on his mind.

He knew that to make it he would have to play better and he did, as stepped on to the ice the next year with the Springfield falcons.

In his first year in the AHL, Reddox would end the season with 48 points in 65 games.

As he gets ready for his second season in the minors what kind of numbers will he put up, and how long will it be until we see him with the Oilers.
