Observations

March 2019 – Russell has had a solid season for the Bakersfield Condors recording 17 goals and 36 points in 47 games compared to the 27 points in 68 games he had last year. The Danish forward also suited up for six games with the Edmonton Oilers where he played limited minutes and didn’t record a point. Russell is nearing the end of his one year contract with the Oilers and with the emergence of younger, more offensively skilled prospects on the Bakersfield Condors, Russell is in danger of being passed on the depth chart and may not get another contract extension. Jameson Ewasiuk

December 2018 – Russell is without a doubt having a solid season. He has shown gradual improvement in the AHL and has recorded 12 points in 14 games for the Condors in his third pro season with the team. His strong play for Bakersfield earned him a call up in November where he played four games for the Oilers (going pointless) from November 17-29th before being sent down to Bakersfield. A couple days later, on December second, Russell was recalled where he played two games and was sent down again on December seventh. Although he has yet to earn his first NHL point, the Dane has obviously impressed the Oilers enough to give him time with the big squad. At 25 years old and with younger forwards finding success in Bakersfield, Russell will need to continue to impress to stay ahead of the pack. Jameson Ewasiuk

June 2018 – On June 8th the Oilers resigned 25-year-old prospect, Patrick Russell to a one year contract extension. The deal comes after Russell completed his second season with the Oilers’ farm team, the Bakersfield Condors. Last season with the Condors, the Danish winger nearly doubled his goals and points output from his rookie AHL season and finished with 14 goals and 27 points in 68 games. With Bakersfield’s lack of veteran offensive producers, Russell could potentially find himself in a top six role this season. Jameson Ewasiuk

September 2017- After signing with the Edmonton Oilers in 2016, the powerful winger spent the entire season in Bakersfield as expected. Russell played in 68 games putting up eight goals and nine assists. The young winger made a lot of improvements this offseason, he played very well in the preseason. He needs to keep improving this year in Bakersfield if he wants a chance with the big club in the coming years. Spencer Pomoty

May 2016 – Patrick Russell has decided to forgo his junior year at St. Cloud State and sign with the Edmonton Oilers. In 41 games this season, the big-bodied winger posted career highs in goals with 20, assists with 21, and points with 41. He was named to the 2014-2015 All-NCHC Rookie Team. Russell is a best described as a power forward who fights along the boards to come up with pucks, and gets them to the net. He had solid numbers in the NCAA season, but his overall projection will be tough to determine. He will likely start next season with the Bakersfield Condors, and he will need to work on his foot speed to truly be able to compete at the NHL level. Prior to playing at St. Cloud State, he scored 49 points in 55 games with the Waterloo Black Hawks where he was a teammate of Oilers Coach Todd McLellan’s son, Tyson McLellan. This is a great profile on who he is. Zach Laing
