Kyle’s father, Darryl Leahy, says that he contributes on faceoffs and has grit to go along with the position.
“He’s very good on the draw, he’s a strong kid, and he’s tough,” the elder Leahy says.
Darryl adds that along with being someone who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty, Kyle is at his best distributing the puck.
“He’s a grinder, he plays physical all the time,” he explains. “He’s more of a set up man than a goal scorer. He’s a penalty killer, face off man, and scrapper. He’s a tough, grind out centreman.”
The Oilers are affiliated with the Colorado Avalanche, and Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League.
Leahy will be in Tulsa on October 1 to start preparations for training camp with the Oilers.
