Oilers Lose Sekera To Torn Achilles

Andrej Sekera has not been able to catch a break since he suffered a torn ACL on a Friday night in May of 2017.

This just in, new that Edmonton Oilers defenceman Andrej Sekera will be out indefinitely after undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon. The Oilers said on Twitter that Sekera was injured during an off-season training session. My take This is a terrible setback for Sekera, obviously, who is coming off of major knee surgery last summer. As for the Edmonton Oilers, however, it’s more difficult to tell exactly what the ramifications are. Sekera went from being Edmonton’s best defen

All About Joel Persson

Since signing Joel Persson to a one-year deal back in May, there hasn’t been a whole lot of information about the player apart from finding out that he will spend next year playing for the Vaxjo Lakers in Sweden. That being said, Persson is a low-risk, offensive-minded defenceman which is in short supply in the Oilers prospect system. While we don’t know how his game will translate to the North American game, Persson will have another year of development in Sweden’s top league which affo

McDavid and Colaiacovo mic’d up at Power Edge Pro camp

Connor McDavid’s offseason training continues this week at the Power Edge Pro camp, and TSN posted some great video of the Oilers’ captain having some fun while wearing a mic with former NHLer, Carlo Colaiacovo. Needless to say, Colaiacovo could be one of Connor’s biggest fans. If there’s one thing that I’ll never get tired of it’s watching Connor McDavid do his thing. I don’t care if that ‘thing’ is during a game or in practice, because the magic he makes with his skates and
