Dylan Holloway has been tearing up the Alberta Junior Hockey League this season while helping the Okotoks Oilers make the playoffs. In his second season with Okotoks, Holloway had 88 points — 40 goals, 48 assists — in 53 games played.

Calgary Journal reporter Jackson Reed spoke to Holloway about his time as an Oiler forward.

The Oilers head coach Tyler Deis has high praise for the forward.

“He’s an exceptionally dynamic player. He’s got a ton of speed; he does everything at a high tempo,” says Deis

Following the end of the season, Holloway will join the University of Wisconsin in the NCAA. A process has been ongoing for two years for Holloway.

“I talked to a couple of schools, but Wisconsin was definitely at the top of my list. When they offered for me to commit, it was no question I wanted to be there,” says Holloway.

Before Holloway heads to Madison, he is helping the Oilers in their quest for a championship. They are currently in the third round of AJHL playoffs against the Brooks Bandits.
