Dallas Eakins hints that Bogdan Yakimov could make the Edmonton Oilers out of camp

Bogdan Yakimov entered training camp as a relatively unknown prospect. He’s now outlasted some more famous players, and Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins made it clear in his pregame press conference on Monday that there is a roster spot available for him – if he can win out over some other players at the position. 630 CHED’s Bob Stauffer asked Eakins whether Leon Draisaitl and Bogdan Yakimov could both win spots with the team, given that they’d outplayed Anton Lander and Mark Arcobello. While Eakins declined to agree with Stauffer’s assertion, he did make it clear the team would use the guys it saw as the best players: I don’t want to speak for my boss, but we’ve had the talks a

Oilers look to score more than zero goals tonight as the Jets visit RX1 @ Preseason Ranks Preseason 7 PM MDT Rexall Place The opposing view: Arctic Ice Hockey Tickets - TiqIQ Getting The Taste Out Fortunately, preseason games don't count for much other than nightmare fuel.  Last night's crowd in Saskatchewan was treated to a five goal performance by the Blackhawks (including this beauty by Teuvo Teravainen).  The Oilers failed to score any, although they had a fairly good first half of the first period.  That's got to be worth something, right?  Right? Hey, where are you going? The Oilers are saying "Ference update:  courageous blocked shots,

Edmonton Oilers defenceman Jeff Petry, who injured his left shoulder in a collision with centre Anton Lander the first day the Oilers were on training-camp ice Sept. 19, was back with his teammates Monday morning at Rexall Place but will need a couple of practices before he suits up for an exhibition game.

Edmonton Oilers Send Five To Oklahoma City

With Oklahoma City Barons AHL training camp beginning today, and its NHL counter-part inching ever so close to the beginning of the season, the Edmonton Oilers have cut five players from their current roster. Those players will report to OKC as soon as possible. The list is unsurprising in some regards, save perhaps Martin Gernat, and it features players that will ice predominantly minor league minutes for the remainder of the season. This is good news if you're an Oklahoma City Barons fan because your roster takes a more shapely form. If you're an Oilers fan perhaps you are discouraged by a few things. Just an FYI, you can indeed be a fan of both teams. Just don't hurt yourself in your ende

Oilers: Martin Marincin is walking a very fine line

Date: 2014-09-29

While the Edmonton Oilers dropped their second pre-season decision in four outings on Sunday afternoon in Saskatoon, falling 5-0 to the Chicago Blackhawks , all that truly matters is whether or not the players are rounding into form prior to the start of the 2014-15 campaign. With that said, one guy who has had a rather uninspiring start to camp has been defenceman Martin Marincin and he could very well be in danger of losing his spot on the big club.

Pre-Season Game #4 - Hawks vs Oilers

Date: 2014-09-29

Live from Saskatoon. The lovely City of Saskatoon will play host tonight to a preseason tilt between the Edmonton Oilers and Chicago Blackhawks. For what it's worth the Oilers are listed as the home team because, well, I guess somebody has to be the home team, and the last time I checked Edmonton was a wee bit closer to Saskatoon than Chicago is (disclaimer: I have never checked this) so I guess the Oilers get the last change by default. Maybe the Hawks would like to score us a couple of goals too. When And Where Early start today, 4PM, at the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon. How To Tune In It doesn't look like there is a television option available tonight. That leaves you with the r

Edmonton Oilers’ defenceman Jeff Petry, who injured his left shoulder in a collision with Anton Lander the first day the Oilers were on the ice Sept. 19, was back with his teammates Monday morning at Rexall Place but will need a couple of practices before he suits up for an exhibition game. He might be able to play Thursday’s home game against the Canucks, the first of a home and home with Vancouver with a rematch Saturday night on the west coast. “I’m still a couple of days before I can be thrown into contact,” said Petry, who had been skating by himself in Leduc when the team practised there last week. “Not the start I wanted (getting hurt in the first s

Following the 5-0 loss, five players have been cut. On the heels of yesterday's 5-0 loss to the Blackhawks the Oilers have announced that five of the players who dressed in that game have now been assigned to the Oklahoma City Barons. With these moves the Oilers now have 23 forwards, 14 defencemen, and four goalies left in camp. #Oilers have assigned Curtis Hamilton, Kale Kessy, Iiro Pakarinen, Jason Williams and Martin Gernat to @OKCBarons. — Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) September 29, 2014 A couple of quick thoughts: I had hoped that Iiro Pakarinen might hang around a little longer battling for a spot at the bottom of the Oilers roster. I even spent some time last week wo
