The Capilano Rehab Injury Report: Turkey Medicine

I’ll have you know that there was one game since the last injury report, and we had NO NEW injuries! *round of applause.* There was, however, a pretty significant piece of injury news that came up. It breaks my heart to talk about it, but let’s do it anyways. 

CGD: Canada looks to continue their hot start against Slovakia

Embed from Getty Images Canada’s opening day 5-3 victory over Russia showed us a couple of things. For starters, this year’s Team Canada has a real shot at competing.

TOP 100 OILERS: JEFF BEUKEBOOM (37)

Embed from Getty Images Jeff Beukeboom was a throwback player, a stay-at-home defenseman who took care of this own end of the ice first and made it possible for his more skilled teammates with the Edmonton Oilers to do their jobs because he was so good at his. Beukeboom was as tough and as honest…

CROSSING THE POND?

I don’t think there are many who believe the current state of affairs in regard to Jesse Puljujarvi makes a lot of sense. The Oilers are keeping him in Edmonton and not playing him much (24 of 36 games, 11:39 ATOI per game). Up until today, most felt (and management suggested) a trip to the…

THE WORLD JUNIORS AND THE OILERS FAN

For fans of the Edmonton Oilers, this edition of the World Juniors is going to be unusual. For many years now, the WJs boasted either fabulous Oilers draft picks (Jordan Eberle, etc) or featured teenagers who would soon be Oilers (Taylor Hall, Connor McDavid, Jesse Puljujarvi). This time, the Oilers have just two kids at…

UPDATED 50-MAN

This is Jere Sallinen. Signed during the offseason with a resume that included KHL and Sm-Liiga time, he was part of the mix in training camp. We haven’t thought about him for some time, but he remains in the organization trying to find his way up the depth chart. Things change a lot from opening…
