Jarret Stoll was a star at the junior hockey level before coming to the NHL. In 2001, he was named to Team Canada's world junior team where they won a silver medal. Stoll was named Captain of the 2002 team, again, winning a silver. He was originally drafted 46th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames, but re-entered the 2002 NHL Entry Draft following an inability to come to terms on a contract. Stoll was subsequently picked in the second round, 36th overall, by the Edmonton Oilers.
After one season playing for the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League, Stoll became a regular in the Oilers line-up. After the lockout, he returned to the Edmonton Oilers and became the Oilers' face-off specialist and one of the team's top scorers during the 2005-2006 season, finishing with 68 points in 82 regular season games.
Stoll has said he wishes to remain an Oiler long term and would one day like to lead the team. He has the resume to do so, too. Stoll isn't a natural scorer, but he does have a heavy shot that the Oilers tend to use on the power play from the point. He's a great two-way player.
