Andrej Sekera recalled. Will he now get it done for the Edmonton Oilers?

Andrej Sekera recalled. Will he now get it done for the Edmonton Oilers?

This in, news that the Edmonton Oilers have recalled d-man Andrej Sekera from the Bakersfield Condors. Sekera played the maximum five games for the Condors allowed under the CBA. He got 2 assists and was +6, playing well on a team now on a 15 game winning streak.

He leaked scoring chances and goals against l

4 Reasons Oilers Made Good Gamble on Gagner

This, That, and the Other Thing

As if fans of the Edmonton Oilers don’t already know how bad things are, how poorly their team is built and how overmatched it is, they got another reminder late in Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the New York Islanders when Colby Cave and Alex Petrovic got a shift on Ken Hitchcock’s second power play unit. That capped a three-game road trip that produced 116 shots, four goals and no points. With the horse that is playoff contention now long out of the barn thanks to a 1-8-2 record over the last 1

It’s been a crazy weekend of Oilers moves and games, and there have been a few injury transactions so let’s get right into them.

Deja Vu

Deja Vu

My friend Louise and I talked for hours about Sam Gagner during the first summer and fall he was an Oiler.

His career hasn’t turned out as planned, but he returns to Edmonton as age 29. Based on early returns, both fans and player are pleased to be reunited. Oilers played well last night but it was another loss. I
