Welcome, citizens, to the very first episode of Oilers Abroad where Josh Park will spend a couple of minutes focusing on the Edmonton Oilers that are playing overseas while we wait for the NHL and AHL seasons to kick off here in North America. This is your first update.
Check out the rundown for this week’s episode:
- Jesse Puljujarvi continues to produce over in Finland but has he brought more of an edge to his game?
- Evan Bouchard continues to play well in the Allsvenskan but will that translate when he returns to North America?
- Raphael Lavoie is having a hot start to his season
- With a fresh contract in his pocket, William Lagesson has nine points in 11 games and it will be interesting to see what kind of role the Oilers have for him next season.
Each week, Josh will bring the updates on how the Edmonton Oilers players and prospects are performing overseas as we wait for the start of the 2021 season.
