Observations:

June 2015 – Ewanyk struggled in his role during his second year of pro, but he gets a fresh start in a new organization. Ottawa has a need for a couple prospects to become cheaper, lower line, role players, Ewanyk is a potential fit as a grinder as Chris Neil finishes his career. Jason Banks

 

February 2015 – In his second professional season with Oklahoma City in the AHL, Ewanyk has been an intimidating presence on the Barons' fourth line. In 46 games with the first place Barons, Ewanyk has compiled 76 penalty minutes and four points and is on pace to pass his previous season's total of 100 penalty minutes. While his offensive game has greatly diminished since a season-ending shoulder injury in 2011-2012, Ewanyk has made up for it with his aggressive fore check and relentless physical game. Soon to be 23 years of age, Ewanyk's career path projects to be as a regular NHL fourth liner. While the Oilers don't lack sand paper with Luke Gazdic and Matt Hendricks filling in the fourth line competently, Ewanyk will most certainly get a look on the Oilers fourth line within the next two years to see if he can bring his intense two-way play to the NHL level. Tyler Thomson

 

March, 2013 – Now healthy, his development has stunted a little in terms of offensive growth. But is playing with even more of a chip on his shoulder, trying to carve a career as an agitator. Dobber

 

February 2012 – Ewanyk has missed the entire 2011-12 season with a shoulder injury he sustained at Oil Kings training camp. The injury required surgery and has cost Ewanyk a valuable year of development. He is expected to rejoin the East leading Oil Kings in March. Oilers fans should look forward to next year when he will be one of the core pieces of the Oil Kings lineup. He will also be a front-runner to wear the “C” for the Oil Kings next season.

 

Fantasy Outlook: D+

He will only be contributing penalty minutes and hits on a constant basis if he gets the call to the Oilers but there's big potential to fill those categories very well.
