Were you planning on taking a trip to Germany or Sweden to watch the Oilers play? The NHL has finally announced the dates for the early season trip that sees the Oilers playing an exhibition game in Germany and opening their season against the Devils in Sweden.
Back in January, the NHL released some preliminary information on the Edmonton Oilers starting their 2018-19 season in Europe and those details were confirmed late last night. The Oilers and Devils will kick off their season against each other in Gothenburg, Sweden on Saturday, October 6th at the Scandinavium. Additionally, the Oilers will complete their training camp in Germany and will play an exhibition match as part of the 2018 NHL Global Series Challenge.
Prior to their season opener against the Devils, the Oilers will play an exhibition game against Kölner Haie on October 3rd at the Lanxess Arena. The game will surely be a large draw as Leon Draisaitl will play in front in front of a hometown crowd on German Unity Day.
