If you’ve been itching to start circling Oilers dates on your calendar then you’re in luck. The Oilers released their pre-season schedule this morning and we only have 102 days to wait!
The Oilers will kick off their pre-season with a pair of split-squad games against the Flames on September 18th and then hit the road for a game in Winnipeg before coming back for four straight. From there, the mighty Oilers (or whatever the team looks like by that point) will head out to Pilsner country for an exhibition contest against the Carolina Hurricanes in Saskatoon before finishing up against the Canucks back at Rogers Place.
No details have been released as to when tickets for the pre-season games go on sale just yet, but I’d guess that we’re still a ways out from that happening. Regardless, we’re one day closer, Nation!
