The NHL dropped a massive bomb on the hockey world this morning by announcing that Las Vegas is the confirmed destination for the next expansion team. It's safe to say that nobody saw this coming, and we are still trying to wrap our heads around it.

Introducing TOP TEN TUESDAY!

Now that the 2015/16 NHL season has officially wrapped up (with Jultz hoisting the Holy Grail high above his head), it seems like a swell time to discuss the highlights from the 2015/16 Oilers season. Today, we start a new tradition with the first ever Top 10 Tuesday! This week's countdown is dedicated to the best moments from the past season, which is a nice change from the memories that would cause most of us to jab a fork into our eye than look back on (keep those forks handy because I’ll be reminding you of those memories in next week’s edition of Top 10 Tuesday).

Coming in at number 19 in this year's Nation Network draft rankings is University of Wisconsin centre Luke Kunin. The Missouri native already has a very successful NCAA season under his belt after putting up 32 points in 34 games for the Badgers this year. 

Kunin has one of the most well-rounded skillsets of this draft class. He's a dangerous shooter with above-average speed, good defensive awareness, and a strong hockey IQ. His talent level isn't quite high enough to merit top-ten consideration, but he is a dangerous goal-scorer with few weak spots in his game, and could be a very good NHL player.
