Developing skill is one of the main objectives in hockey, and it should be the second most important factor for minor hockey associations. Ensuring the kids are having fun should be the first objective of every minor hockey parent, coach and association.
Before we get to the Oilers signing of Linus Omark, let's look at how Edmonton is hoping to develop even more skilled players.

The summer of 2013 is starting to start to wind down. The mornings are getting a bit chilly, it's raining cats and dogs. For some this is a reason to wring one's hands and cry aloud "WHY SUMMER WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?" For us hockey fans, we have a secret smile in our heart as we can begin counting down the days till puck drop.
To get us all in the spirit we proudly present the first two NationGear designs of the 2013-14 season.

Devan Dubnyk is in the final season of his two-year, $3.5 million/season contract. So far this summer, there has been no word on extension talks, meaning either that the Oilers are doing a masterful job of concealing their intentions or that they aren’t entirely sure that Dubnyk will be the team’s starter a year from now.

Before I went left to Banff for the inaugural Hockey Alberta Summit, Taylor Hall made a surprise appearance on my radio show. I was on location, and Meg Storms saw Hall roaming the halls of the TEAM 1260 studio. Hall and the pun-master Gene Principe were in the building voicing a commercial, so Storms asked/told Hall to stop in for a quick chat.
Hall obliged/listened and we had an impromptu chat. It was the first time I've had a guest in studio, while I was out on location.
