Jay Woodcroft turned 39 this past August and he's already entering his 11th season in the NHL as an assistant coach. He started as a video coach in Detroit, and when Todd McLellan got the head coaching job in San Jose had asked Woodcroft to come with him. After seven seasons in San Jose, Woodcroft and McLellan left and landed in Edmonton.
They have a strong working relationship and McLellan has put Woodcroft in charge or the powerplay for many years. That will continue in Edmonton.

The Edmonton Oilers announced this morning that they will play the 2015-16 season without a captain. Instead, they named four assistant captains to lead the group by committee. Matt Hendricks will wear a fifth "A" while Jordan Eberle is on the shelf with a shoulder injury.

After waiting around all summer for the hockey season to roll back around the time has come. It's that time of year when Oilers fans are filled with hope, recharged, and ready to watch games without a feeling of dread. This season, we wanted to find more ways to bring the Nation together aside from hoping for meaningful games in November.

Jordan Eberle is obviously the big name that comes up in this week's injury report. Ebs hurt his shoulder last Tuesday in the first period against Arizona, ironically right after last week's injury report was posted. The injury will keep him out of the lineup for four to six weeks. That's a big hit to the Oilers' offense before the season has even started!
