Nation Donair Tour – Queen Donair

We hosted our season opener party at The Pint on Saturday and, as you all surely know, the Oilers gave us a lot of reasons to drink. Here’s what happens when you’re 2:00 AM drunk at 4:00 PM.


RNH likely to be ready for Thursday

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was noticeably absent from the Oilers’ first practice back in North America on Monday. In his place on the top line was extra forward Drake Caggiula, but Jason Gregor reports that Nugent-Hopkins is expected to be ready for Edmonton’s game against the Bruins in Boston on Thursday.

Road To Sweden: Koln

The bittersweet train ride from our hotel out to the Munich was a quick one. Sad to have to leave but excited to be heading to Oilers hockey in Cologne. Lots to update you on so let’s get to it!


Road To Sweden: Beer

When I last left you updated on this spectacular voyage to Europe with our beloved Oilers I was just arriving in Munich and while writing about it the European death cold I contracted was taking a hold of me. As you can see I am still alive, barely but here I am let you know…


Stuart Skinner assigned to the ECHL

One of the many ongoing questions we had throughout this summer was how our goaltender prospects were going to be handled. Sure, this may not be as pressing news as the Jason Garrison signing earlier, but with the recently added goaltenders at this years draft, I have been waiting patiently for this news.
