With the boys back in town (THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN!) and training camp just around the corner, there are still a few questions rolling around in my brain box in regards to what’s happening with the Oilers and how things are going to shake out by the time the puck drops on October 6th.
The Oilers VP of Player Development, Scott Howson, spoke to the media earlier today on the first day of rookie camp. He spoke about some of the up-and-coming rookies and what they have to offer in camp, as well as a couple injuries that are affecting the group.
The Oilers rookie camp opened today with medicals and fitness training. They will play three games starting Sunday in Calgary versus the Flames rookies, Tuesday at Rogers Place versus a NAIT/MacEwan all-star team and then Wednesday in Red Deer against the Flames rookies. You can make a strong argument this is the deepest rookie group…
Okay, we’ve talked about the third jersey in the past, but since the Oilers finally introduced their alternate jersey for the 2018-19 season earlier this week, we need to bring it up again.
