Seitz signs standard player deal with Oil Kings a week after being drafted

By Medicine Hat News on May 2, 2020.

The Edmonton Oil Kings wasted no time in signing the top bantam draft prospect out of Medicine Hat this week.

Fifteen-year-old Hatter Dawson Seitz officially signed his name to a Western Hockey League standard player agreement Thursday, just eight days after being selected 20th overall in the bantam draft.

Seitz had his Alberta Major Bantam Hockey League season shortened due to injury, but the 6-foot-1, 160-pound forward made the most of seven regular season games with his hometown South East Athletic Club Tigers – striking for seven goals in the span. Seitz went on to add three goals and two assists in five playoff contests.

Seitz was one of three SEAC Tigers called on in last week’s draft. Defencemen Josh Van Mulligen and Cole Unger were both selected by the Medicine Hat Tigers. Van Mulligen – who captained SEAC this year – went in the second round, 39th overall, while Unger was taken 206th overall in the 10th round.
