Just after Chris the Intern finished his Injury Report, the Oilers announced that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been placed on the Injured Reserve. Iiro Pakarinen, who was waived back in early December, has been called up from AHL Bakersfield in his place.
Nuge’s shoulder is fine, Connor turned 21, Darnell Nurse is hanging with his sister, and we’re currently sitting on a two game winning streak during the bye-week. What a time to be alive! *refuses to look at standings*
The Oilers are on their bye week right now, which is a good thing for the team and fans alike. I think we all need a bit of a break. 2017-18 hasn’t been kind to the Oilers as the team has failed to live up to the lofty expectations that stemmed from their breakout season…
If you’ve ever wanted to see the crew at Nation HQ ‘play the game’ then this is your opportunity. Next month, we’ll be heading out to Lake Louise to join in on the Annual Lake Louise Pond Hockey Classic and you’re all invited to join us.
