WATCH: JJ Khaira sticks up for Zack kassian, fights Haley

Saturday night’s afternoon’s alright for fighting. It’s a matinee game in Sunrise, Florida today and everyone is all riled up. Panthers grunt Michael Haley drilled Zack Kassian with a questionable check and immediately had to the answer to JJ Khaira.


Milan Lucic to play 800th career game

Today’s game against the Florida Panthers will mark a milestone for Oilers winger, Milan Lucic, as he will be playing in his 800th NHL game. Since being drafted in the second round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft (50th overall), Milan Lucic developed into the prototypical power forward that all others were measured by. Often imitated but…


Ty Rattie is next up on the McDavid line

The Oilers are travelling to Florida for back-to-back games against the Panthers and Lightning this weekend. According to Jack Michaels, Pontus Aberg won’t be in the lineup on Saturday, so it’ll be the freshly-recalled Ty Rattie sliding in on the top line.


Connor McDavid races the rest of the Oilers

Connor McDavid has been in the NHL for almost three full seasons and I don’t think we’ve ever encountered a video of him racing his own teammates. We’ve seen him in the Oilers skills competition, but never in a full blown race against each other. We now have video evidence of this thanks to Gene…


Oilers recall Ty Rattie from Bakersfield Condors

For the second time in a matter of weeks, the Edmonton Oilers have recalled Ty Rattie from the Bakersfield Condors. In the two games he played with the Oilers during his last recall, Ty Rattie didn’t get much done with the big club as he didn’t get a point or even a shot on goal, and was…


Missing the playoffs is not just an Oiler thing

Whether you’re a fan of dynasties or not, the NHL is not good at producing new Stanley Cup champions. There have only been four different teams to win a Stanley Cup in the last nine years. Personally, I’m a big fan of that storyline; I think it’s cool to see teams reach legendary status. One…


Oilers to lose fourth-round pick in 2018

Al Montoya is making his seventh appearance as a member of the Edmonton Oilers tonight. Why is that significant? Because it means Edmonton had reached the condition on the trade they made with the Montreal Canadiens back in January.


Looking Back: Evander Kane greasing Matt Benning and No Response

This team can be exasperating at the best of times. We all know the struggles of the season that have left last year’s quarter finalist team in the draft lottery this year. This is a team that has been constructed as a big burly, heavy team, in a league rapidly heading the way of small…


Watch It Again: Darnell Nurse Stands Up For His Guys

When Juhjar Khaira went toe to toe with Cal Clutterbuck against the Islanders last week, we saw this team literally fighting for some semblance of respect and pride on the lost season. On this night, the Oilers are taking on their provincial rivals in the Flames. The Flames with playoff hopes hanging by less than…
