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…

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…

Happy Birthday Nuge!

Have I mentioned that April 12th is one of my favourite days of the year? Yes it’s behind Christmas, Easter, Halloween, and New Years Eve, but it’s still near the top. What day could be so special to be ranked so high you ask? It’s Ryan Nugent-Hopkins birthday!
