Oilers Prospect Update: Joakim Phoenix

This week’s cover model, is familiar to Oilers fans from last season, while this year, he is tearing it up with goals in as many games as he has played all week. Last week’s poster boy Savoie has himself a “down” week in the NCAA with only a point per game pace. The goalies in the system continue to have some struggles. Rodrigue is now 0-3-2 over the last two weeks.

The next few updates are going to slow as players begin to make their way back to Edmonton for training camp. The usual suspects will be enroute to Edmonton and even a few surprises:

Also a big congrats going out to Broberg for making the Swedish World Juniors squad as well as Dylan Holloway for getting a spot on Team Canada for the tournament. Make sure you stay tuned to the social channels of Oilersnation as we will be giving away some signed Canada jerseys soon.

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)

Dare to Dream, Oilersnation

M.O.B.I.L.I.Z.E x OILERSNATION

“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
