One Minute Men – Oilers vs Jets (December 13, 2018)

This is another very odd game day. Since we all know Winnipeg doesn’t have an airport, rumours say that the Oilers have parachuted into the city instead of flying to Fargo, North Dakota and bussing into Winnipeg like last time. Anyways, Cam and I decided to hit up the Edmonton Aviation Museum to show off all of the cool airplanes we have in this city to Jets fans. In case you’re new here, the One Minute Men is a video series where Cam Lewis and myself try to read the Game Day Notes in unde

GDB 32.0: Goin’ to Winnipeg (6pm MST, SNW)

Confidence, momentum, consistency, attention to detail and a portion of luck lead to winning streaks in the NHL. Since Ken Hitchcock was hired the Oilers are 8-2-1, their second 8-2-1 stretch of the season in fact, and have been one of the best teams in the NHL. They picked the perfect time to play well, because their 17 points are sixth best in the NHL since November 19th, and three Pacific Division foes are in the top five. Tampa Bay is 10-2, Calgary is 9-2-1, Washington and Anaheim are 9-2,

Oilers Prospects Pushing For Roster Spots

Oilers Prospects Pushing For Roster Spots

The Edmonton Oilers’ defensive corps could look very different between now and next October. Veteran defencemen Andrej Sekera and Kris Russell each have modified trade clauses that kick in next summer, and there’s a chance that both players could be moved before then. Matt Benning is a solid third pairing option, but it’s unclear whether or not he’s part of Edmonton’s long-term plans. Top prospect Evan Bouchard will be in the Oilers’ opening-night lineup in 2019-20. During his seve

Oilers activate Tobias Rieder, place Kris Russell on the Injured Reserve

The Edmonton Oilers made another roster move today as they have activated Tobias Rieder from the Injured Reserve and replaced him with Kris Russell.  The past couple of days haven’t been overly positive for the Edmonton Oilers as they’ve run into some injury trouble to key pieces on their back end. Yesterday, they placed Oscar Klefbom on the IR after breaking his hand/fingers in Tuesday’s win against the Colorado Avalanche, and today, we learned that Kris Russell will be joining him. Wh

Edmonton Oilers Rumors: Puljujarvi Being Showcased? Plus 2019 World Junior Hockey Championship Group B Preview

Say It ain’t so! According to Boston Bruins beat writer Jimmy Murphy, Jesse Puljujarvi’s name is making the rounds amongst GMs. He has the Bruins, the Canadiens, and the Flyers as teams to keep an eye on with regards to organizations who could have interest in our big Finnish winger. I’ll say this, I will be right pissed off if the Oilers deal away Pulju. He’s this close to putting it all together and he’s only 20. He will be a value contract on his next deal regardless and they Oile
