Hall, Nugent-Hopkins step up in win

September 30 2014 06:06AM

Exhibitions are a necessary evil to Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who don’t have to win over their coach Dallas Eakins, only the people paying good money in the seats for fall games that count only for team pride. RNH and Hall were the best thing on the ice, though, Monday as the Edmonton Oilers beat the Winnipeg Jets for the second time in pre-season, 3-1. Hall had two goals, both on Nugent-Hopkins’ feeds — one a Gretzkyesque pass that Hall buried for his first two exhibition scores. RNH, meanwhile, leads the Oilers with four pre-season points. One of his two pre-season goals came in a 3-2 victory over the Jets in Winnipeg last week.

Oilers training camp fitness level impresses coach Dallas Eakins

September 27 2014 01:37PM

The routine should be rather formulaic for Matt Hendricks after all these years: put the sweat equity in the off-season sticking with the same tried and true workout; then report for another NHL training camp. But Hendricks elected to change his approach before getting to Edmonton for his first full season with the Oilers. He wanted to be fit enough to take on the leg-burning bike test as well as the high intensity endurance test on the ice.
