The Edmonton Oilers made a bit of history at pick No. 22 by taking Spokane forward Kailer Yamamoto.

According to TSN Edmonton Bureau Reporter Ryan Rishaug, the 18-year-old is the shortest player ever selected in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft, coming in at just under 5-foot-8.

Yamamoto is "Diminutive, highly-skilled winger who makes things happen offensively and is elusive," said TSN's Director of Scouting Craig Button in his pre-draft analysis. 

In 65 games played last year for the Spokane Chiefs, Yamamoto had 42 goals and 99 points.
