Oilers Prospect Update: Malone call-up? Ostap Safin crush

Busy week this week with some offensive outbursts in the AHL. Three games played will do that for you but the top line of Marody, Benson and Hebig has been coming on strong. Brad Malone makes a strong push to be the next callup in light of the Jesse and Kailer demotions. Give yourself some…


Nation Donair Tour – Bingo Donair

Another week and another donair tour stop. This week the ice caused us to postpone our originally scheduled programming guest and shifted over to a hibernation mode provided by Skip the Dishes. The “stop” this week is Bingo donair.


Oilersnation Radio Episode 11 – Beer League Roster

The flu has ravaged the office of Oilersnation and therefore Baggedmilk and Chris are both out on the IR for the week. Jay from the RealLifePodcast and Rick from the Pint step up huge and bring a new flavour to the show. This ought to be an episode full of structure and no chaos at all.


Evan Bouchard scores in first game back with the London Knights

It feels like only yesterday when Evan Bouchard was playing in the NHL and not looking one bit out of place. He played his seven games, netting a goal and racking up a minus-five +/- total. But reality checked in this past week when the Nation’s dad was sent back down to the London Knights just…


Oilers Prospect Update: Bear and Ostap Return

Some transactions this week making waves. Another great week for Hawkey in the NCAA. Big returns from injury with both Bear and Safin hitting the ice again. Bouchard back to the OHL – The big news for the Oilers this week is that Bouchard is back down to London with the powerhouse squad they have there….


Oilersnation does Movember

Halloween has ended and that means November is here. The month is sometimes referred to as Mo-vember and is used as a springboard to try and bring men’s health issues to the forefront. What started out as a big push for prostate cancer and male depression awareness in Australia and New Zealand has grown to…


Oilers Prospect Update: Doing the Hawkey

Just a weird season for games played so far to start the year through the AHL and ECHL with both clubs seemingly mirroring the big club in an early lack of games played. That resulted in some goalie shuffling to make sure the logjam sees some time in both leagues. Not too many big offensive weeks…


Alex Chiasson gets his Stanley Cup ring

The Capitals have come to town. The memory of the team’s dismantling of the Vegas Golden Knights last year is still fresh for most. Most of all the former Caps that ended up signing deals with other teams as free agents. That’s where this story and Alex Chiasson come in. This offseason the Stanley Cup…


Patrick Sharp and Adam Burish admire Connor McDavid

The Chicago Blackhawks are doing some pre-scouting for their matchup against the Oilers on Sunday afternoon and two former Hawks, Adam Burish and Patrick Sharp, sat down and do what Oilers fans do on a daily basis — watch Connor McDavid highlights and marvel at how amazing he is. I figured we could take a little…


Rating Oilers Halloween Costumes

The Simpsons specials, candy corn, pumpkin spice, candy apples, that totally fake story about that one time that a guy put razor blades in a kids candy that definitely never happened but continues to live on and NHL players dressing up as other people and enraging/elating the masses. The Oilers held their own special night and…


Connor McDavid named NHL’s 2nd star of the week

When I made the title for google searches I included the date for this accolade with the thought of thousands of years from now someone thinks of Connor McDavid and their brain implant searches all things Connor. You are a welcome future person because this was something that we in the present day could basically…


Oilers Prospect Update: Marody earns the call

A slower week for most of the system of the Oil. Slow in the sense that the games played just aren’t there. Still working on figuring out what is wrong with Safin in Halifax. There are some highlights for you to check out including a few headlines: Keegan Lowe named captain – the son of…
