Oilers Prospect Update: In Rodrigue, We Trust

Oilers prospects and property had a big weekend of offensive output. Between Puljujarvi, Broberg and Nygard, there was a bit of fun in the twitter world. Read about it more here:

WATCH: Puljujarvi wins it in overtime, Nygard and Broberg score as well

Around the rest of the prospects we saw a big week from Rodrigue as he was the victor in all three games. His goalie counterpart, Konovalov had one quick/rough outing.

Side note for those of you who are reading the update for the first time.
While it’s a prospect update, not all players are specifically prospects in the traditional sense of the word. Some are merely players of which we own the rights to, and some are older players who I think people would like to follow along with.
Updates are current as to the time of publish (if they’re playing in a game when it’s published, I won’t include that)

“When Oilersnation reached out to me on our initial connection it reminded me of what the treaties are supposed to represent. A collective moving forward in a good way.
From an indigenous perspective this has been told to me to be like the boat and canoe floating down the same river, together but not in conflict. This design is taking my indigenous artistic practice and blending it with the ON logo. As indigenous people much of our culture is based on the concept of the circle and the balance that it represents (depicted within the ON logo). The syllabic art within the hand is inspired by Cree traditional tattoos and in syllabics is the name of this beautiful territory as my nation (Nehiyaw/Cree) would write it “Amiskwaciwâskahikan”. Syllabic form is the proper way for writing our language.
Amiskwaciwâskahikan translates to “beaver mountain house” and the territory we all live on was a common meeting place of many indigneous nations”. – Dusty
