Last week, news came out of Sweden that defensive prospect, William Lagesson, would be returning to North America to try and crack the Oilers roster after spending the year on loan to Djurgårdens IF of the SHL.


McDavid among the top selling NHL jerseys

The NHL released the list of their top-selling jerseys this morning and the Oilers’ captain, Connor McDavid, ranks among the league leaders in overall units sold. Surprised? Unlikely. Considering Connor McDavid has now won back-to-back Art Ross Trophies and is arguably one of the most marketable assets the league has in its stable, it’s not…


The ‘Pete’s on it’ Photoshop Contest

Since talking about the playoffs isn’t an option for us this year, I wanted to put something fun together so that we can all have a laugh in these dark, playoff-less days — Gord knows we could use a chuckle. My friends, it’s photoshop contest time.


Happy 3rd Connorversary!

Can you believe that it’s already been three years since the Oilers won the privilege to draft Connor McDavid? It was three years ago today that the lottery gods gave us the nod and blessed our franchise with the best player to hit the NHL since Sidney Crosby, and I wanted to take a minute to…


Five reasons I’m excited about next season

Monday Mailbag – Chiarelli’s summer to-do list

Nation compatriots, it’s that time of the week where we all gather round cross-legged on the floor and learn a little something about hockey and about life. As always, I’ve passed along your Oilers-related questions (sometimes not) to our panel of wise men and waited for them send nuggets of brilliance back my way. It was…


Oilers year end report card

My friends, it’s been a while since we’ve ranked the Oilers in an up-or-down style report card and with the season wrapped up, I wanted to get your thoughts on how everyone did.

Jesse Puljujarvi hitches ride home with a fan

If you’re looking for more reasons to love Jesse Puljujarvi then I just found a video to add to the list. Our favourite large adult son was leaving Rogers Place and making his way home after cleaning out his locker when a fan spotted him crossing the street and offered him a ride. As expected…


Speculation: Jim Johnson to go from coaching staff?

The Oilers rumour mill is firing up already with word coming out of the Twitter machine from TSN’s Dean Millard that assistant coach Jim Johnson could be the one to get the boot from the coaching staff. Of course, this is only speculation at this point and there’s no guarantee that this is going to…


Bob Nicholson speaks, nothing changes

First it was Todd McLellan, then Peter Chiarelli, and today it was Bob Nicholson’s turn to speak to the media and try to make sense of another lost season. Just kidding, he barely answered questions. Let’s break it down. 


Peter Chiarelli talks disappointing 2017-18 season

After what can only be described as a disastrous season for the Edmonton Oilers, it was Peter Chiarelli’s turn to face the music and answer questions about where this team went wrong and what he’ll be doing to fix it. As always, I’ve got the breakdown.
