My friends, I’m here to deliver some bad news. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will be out of the lineup for 5-6 weeks with cracked ribs.
If you’ve ever wanted to see the crew at Nation HQ ‘play the game’ then this is your opportunity. Next month, we’ll be heading out to Lake Louise to join in on the Annual Lake Louise Pond Hockey Classic and you’re all invited to join us.
With it being the bye week and Oilers news coming in at a snail’s pace, I wanted to take a quick minute to give a shout out to Jesse Puljujarvi for being a hero to a group of local kids.
This morning on The Locker Room, I jumped on to talk with the boys about which city claims the league’s worst fans, getting rowdy in Vegas, and what comes next for the Oilers.
Over at the Edmonton Journal, they posted a scathing letter about Oilers fans getting out of hand in Las Vegas over the weekend. Is it fair to lump all Oilers fans in together on this? Let’s take a look.
The Oilers got some good news today as Ryan Rishaug revealed that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins did not suffer a concussion on Saturday night in Vegas, but rather some bruising that should clear up by the end of this week.
Greetings, Nation compadres! It’s Mailbag time again and that means that I’ve taken your questions and sent them off to our panel of geniuses to assess and pass along some wisdom that you’ll be able to carry forward with you for the rest of your days. As always, I need your questions for next week, so open up…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CONNOR! Final Score: 3-2 Oilers in OT
The Oilers will look to wrap up their five game road trip on a high note as they head into Vegas to face the Pacific-leading Golden Knights.
Connor, with today being your 21st birthday, I wanted to send my best wishes to you and hope that you have enough energy to party after carrying this franchise on your back.
Hockey super insider, Elliotte Friedman, appeared on Sportsnet 960 in Calgary this morning and was asked what kind of moves that are likely to come for the Oilers after what has been a disastrous season.
My friends, we’re only hours away from what will likely be one of the most anticipated games of the season. Who’s excited? Anybody? Alrighty then.
