Wells has been an AHL and ECHL fixture since 2018-19 and has yet to see NHL ice.

Wells stopped all 18 shots he faced in Saturday's 1-0 overtime loss to the Flames' prospects.

Wells went 6-6-0 with one shutout, a 2.84 GAA and a .909 save percentage in 12 games played with AHL Bakersfield last year. He remains, at best, fourth on the goalie depth chart for the Oilers, who will probably begin the year with Mikko Koskinen and Mike Smith tending twine for the parent club.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Dylan Wells: Ready for pro level
Wells will join the professional ranks this upcoming season.
Following four years spent in junior with OHL Peterborough, Wells will link up with with AHL Bakersfield or ECHL Wichita for the upcoming campaign. At best, the Ontario native slots in as the fourth goalie on the Oilers organizational depth chart, though that's a spot he may need to steal away from Shane Starrett, who logged the bulk of the minutes with the Thunder last season. With Al Montoya and Mikko Koskinen expected to compete for the backup job behind Cam Talbot, the 20-year-old Wells is unlikely to see any action for Edmonton for at least another season....
