No time frame for return of Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl

Leon Draisaitl, who has a concussion, is still on the Edmonton Oilers 23-man roster, but winger Drake Caggiula has been put on injured reserve with an undisclosed problem. With only 12 healthy forwards, the Oilers called up Brad Malone from the Bakersfield Condors. With a game Tuesday at home against Carolina Hurricanes, then a three-game road trip to Chicago, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh starting Thursday, the Oilers needed an extra warm body so are bringing in Malone. He had a

Edmonton Oil Kings lose in overtime to Regina Pats

Regina Pats star centre Sam Steel proved too difficult to stop for the Edmonton Oil Kings in the last of a four-game road trip Sunday. Steel, a Sherwood Park product, scored the tying goal and then set up the winner for the Pats in a 3-2 overtime victory against the Oil Kings at the Brandt Centre in Regina, Sask. The overtime loss dropped the Oil Kings to 4-6-1 on the year. They went 1-2-1 on the trip through the tough WHL East Division. Conner McDonald and Davis Koch sc

Prescription for Oil Country: How about we all take a chill pill?

This in, news that the Edmonton Oilers have recall Brad Malone My take If the Oilers needed depth at centre, and they do with Leon Draisaitl out, Brad Malone is as good a bet as anyone in Bakersfield. The fact is the Oilers forward depth in the Bake isn’t great right now, certainly not a centre and also not on the wing. For now, right winger Jesse Puljujarvi needs to work on hustling harder and reading the game better. Essentially he’s got to move from being a dom

Terry Jones: Where do Edmonton Oilers go from here?

Two questions. What happened? And what happens next? The opening game of the season was a near-perfect performance by the Edmonton Oilers. Cam Talbot opened with a shutout. The developing defence was dynamic. And Hart Trophy-winning 20-year-old captain, Connor McDavid, was brilliant with a hat trick featuring a goal fans around the NHL talked about for days. The Oilers on opening night looked every bit the Stanley Cup contending club they were supposed to be this

Where's the offence for Edmonton Oilers through four games?

When you can name the goal scorers on one hand through four games, it’s not a good thing. Connor McDavid, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Leon Draisaitl, Kris Russell and Adam Larsson. You’ll notice one salient fact from that Edmonton list; an absence of goals from wingers. “The D have outscored the wingers 2-1 if you count Leon as a winger,” said Oilers coach Todd McLellan, who is paid to pay attention, also to look at stats. Like the Oilers shooting percentage at e

Brad Malone gets the Call

The Edmonton Oilers recalled Brad Malone from Bakersfield this afternoon, Drake Caggiula going on IR (he is rapidly becoming an injury worry). I suggested during the RE series that this might be a recall option. He has been the No. 1 center in Bakersfield and the team’s leading scorer. Although he is a center, he’d have no problems moving to wing and does have penalty-killing experience in the NHL. Here
