BEN BETKER?— Steve Schulte (@fatlossftw) October 19, 2016
The Edmonton Oilers placed Mark Fayne on IR today and called up Ben Betker from the Bakersfield Condors. Betker in one of many lefties available, but Griffin Reinhart, David Musil, Jordan Oesterle, and Dillon Simpson would perhaps have been more logical additions based on merit and experience. What's up?

By this time next week, the Bakersfield Condors will be in regular season action, meaning all of the Oilers prospects will be playing in leagues across the hockey world. Here is the latest from the group already in action.

McDavid-mania is alive and well in the city of Edmonton and it makes itself obvious in many ways. How many? Let's count them.

The Edmonton Oilers have not been successful with second-round picks in recent history (last big fly: Jeff Petry, 2006) and that has to change. We are early days with the latest second rounder—Tyler Benson—but the arrows so far are good to great.

Edmonton Oilers entered training camp with a few openings and a bunch of interesting options at each position: Draft picks, minor leaguers and some college men. Handicapping the field, I guessed we might see Jordan Oesterle and Jujhar Khaira break camp with the big club. Who won the jobs? Let's have a look.
