HAPPY HALLOWEEN YA CREEPS!!

Here’s a short film I made with a couple of my friends a few months back. It was an official selection at the Open Wound Film Festival at the Santa Fe Comic Con and we won the award for Best Kills. OFFICIALLY AWARD WINNING!!! *Finger guns*

WEEKEND UPDATE

This week Oilers prospects lit the lamp and made significant noise, with one prospect enjoying a breakout week in his minor league career. Oscar Klefbom (photo by Rob Ferguson, all rights reserved) had a wonderful week as he builds his resume on the way to the NHL.

PACIFIC WAR ROOM

As per tradition, the Royal Half has rounded up the brightest bloggers from around the Pacific Division and wrapped up the week that was in a tasty little nugget known as the Pacific War Room.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy…

The Roundup

Halloween hacks, Henrik Sedin, Randy Carlyle, Jets fan etiquette, Oilers are hot, Flames tendies, and more in this week’s Roundup.

The Nation Minute

The Nation Network brings you the Nation Minute, a rapid fire look around the network and the NHL. On tap this week, Draisaitl, Scrivens, Wideman, Vrbata, the Leafs and more.

JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF YOUR MIND

To the surprise of no one, the Edmonton Oilers announced today that Leon Draisaitl is staying—for now—with the team. A long and uneven tradition that began with Sam Gagner continues unabated, as the Oilers like their forwards to take one giant leap whenever humanly possible.
