Derek Roy’s next contract

At this point it seems reasonably probable that the Edmonton Oilers will re-sign free agent centre Derek Roy. Roy has posted 21 points in 39 games, has enjoyed reasonably good chemistry with Nail Yakupov and wasn’t moved at the trade deadline despite his UFA status. How much will he cost?

LIGHT AND TRUTH

Andrew Miller is taking Edmonton by storm! In what is becoming a hockey March madness, the young forward from Yale has been part of an interesting surge in the past week. Will he spend more than 10 games in the NHL during his career? Hell if I know. He sure does look like a hockey player, though. I spoke to Tom Lynn on the Lowdown yesterday and he told me the number one thing college kids are looking for in signing with an NHL team is opportunity. Lynn said a team (like Edmonton) that gives opportunities (and NHL minutes) to college free agents after signing them gets noticed and the agent (ahem, adviser) uses that when discussing destinations. Bottom line: Andrew Miller’s success bode

West Coast Bias: Oilers in play for O’Connor

Boston University goalie Matt O’Connor will play at least one more game for Boston University, after his Terriers won a thrilling 3-2 overtime game over Yale on Friday to open the NCAA’s Northeast Regional. If B.U. wins on Saturday, they’re on to the Frozen Four April 9-11 in Boston. That means the 6-foot-5, 204 pound unrestricted free agent — the hottest UFA on the college market this spring — can take his time choosing which National Hockey League team to sign with. If B.U. loses Saturday against Minnesota-Duluth, expect an announcement on Wednesday or Thursday, so O’Connor can possibly burn a year of his two-year Entry Level deal by playing an NHL game before the end of the r

Oklahoma call up Andrew Miller scores first NHL goal on a penalty shot, while Richard Bachman shows the Dallas the door. Highlights Edmonton hockey fans were treated to something special at fan appreciation night. They got to watch the Oklahoma City Barons win the Ford Skills and Drills competition* and earn the opportunity to practice at Rexall Place. In Oilers jerseys. Against the Dallas Stars.

Player grades – Richard Bachman leads the Edmonton Oilers to a 4-0 win over the Dallas Stars

Oilers 4, Stars 0 I’m not used to seeing the Edmonton Oilers run over the Dallas Stars, and despite a weak second period where the team had to lean heavily on Richard Bachman this was a very solid game for the home team. Bachman was great in net, the forwards did a good job of generating chances, and a very young and very patchwork defensive group managed to do enough to get the win. Full grades follow. Player Grades The following are the player grades for the Oilers, with 10 being a “perfect” game, 9 extraordinary, 8 great, 7 good, 6 above average, 5 average, 4 below average, 3 poor, 2 terrible and 1 deserving of almost instant demotion. Compiled by Jonathan Willis. Forward Line No. 1

Edmonton Oilers Taylor Hall raises ire of Benn, plays it cool and helps club beat Stars 4-0

It was one of those hockey moments that fans can see coming, a collision easy to triangulate, delicious in the anticipation. The hitter was Taylor Hall, who crouched low to put a classic mid-ice hit on Dallas Stars go-to guy, Jamie Benn, the puck-carrier and the hittee, in this case. Hall’s hip and torso made contact with Benn, perhaps a shade low, in the neighborhood of Benn’s knees. Down went Benn, as the Stars early second-period attack fizzled and the play rocketed the other way, with Oilers centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins getting a partial breakaway and a gild-edged scoring chance on Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen. “The whole sequence worked out,” Hall said. “It wou

The Edmonton Oilers were handing over 60-inch TVs, patio furniture and trips to the world hockey championship in Prague, Czech Republic, on fan appreciation night Friday at Rexall Place, but they weren’t giving away two points to the Dallas Stars. Goaltender Richard Bachman, who played 32 games for Dallas before joining the Oilers’ farm team, stuck a knife in the Stars’ playoff hopes and twisted it as he stopped all 29 shots in a 4-0 victory over his buddy, Kari Lehtonen.
