Say Your Piece: It’s Citizen Survey Time

When I first started working at the Nation, Wanye and I put together a survey to give you guys a voice in how we do things around here. Now, six years and many changes later, it’s time to dust off the ol’ survey machine to get your thoughts on how we’re doing.


We’re going to Calgary and you’re all invited to join us

There’s no doubt in my mind that one of the best parts of working at the Nation are the events we get to throw and the experiences we all have as a result, and there’s no better example in my mind than the bus trips we take to Calgary. Thanks to our friends at The…


Nation Brunch Party presented by The Canadian Brewhouse

After having so much fun at the Season Launch Party a couple of weeks ago, we decided that we should probably throw another all-ages event with our friends at The Canadian Brewhouse as a means of getting the Nation together. One of the best parts of this job is getting together and meeting with the…


The 2019 Season Launch Party presented by The Canadian Brewhouse

After another long, playoff-less summer, a brand new hockey season is peeking out of its wrapper and we wanted to throw a party to kick things off as an offering to the hockey gods as we begin our quest to get back into the playoffs. My friends, it’s time for the season opener party again…


Remembering Dad

Nineteen is one of my favourite numbers. There is no special reason other than I like how it looks, and I wore it a few years in hockey. I was 19 when I met my first girlfriend. I also bought my first vehicle; a 1982 Ford EXP when I was 19. It was a good…


Recapping the 3rd annual Oilersnation Open

On Thursday, August 29th, we took over the links at Cougar Creek Golf Resort for the third annual Oilersnation Open presented by the Canadian Brewhouse and Wilhauk Beef Jerky, and, as expected, it was one of the best days of the summer.


Help us spread the word about Chase the Cure YEG

On August 17th, our friends at Sherwood Ford have partnered up with Chase the Cure YEG in support of the Alberta Cancer Foundation to help raise awareness and funds for cancer research, and we wanted to use our platform to help get a few more eyes on the event. While I know this isn’t a…


Beware of fake Connor McDavid signed memorabilia

The world of sports memorabilia can be a crazy and wild place. For some of the more coveted signatures, the price tag for items can reach into the thousands and higher, and the allure of making a quick buck off of faking the hottest signature in Edmonton right now is high. But thanks to the…


Even the boys know to #KeepNugeForever

I’ll be the first to admit that this job is pretty cool. Truth be told, I feel grateful all the time that I get to hang out at Nation HQ with the boys and talk hockey with all of you guys every day. The gig can be weird, different, time consuming, stressful and everything in…


There’s an All-Star game in Edmonton this weekend

Not since 1989 when the Oilers hosted the NHL all-star game, has Edmonton seen the likes of the All-Star game and festivities that this weekend will bring to the gem of the River Valley, Re-Max Field. The WCBL All-Star weekend is upon us and the Edmonton Prospects are hosting. Both the home run derby (2:00…
