The Oilers Expansion Plans

The Oilers Expansion Plans

While a lot of talk right now is centred around what the 2020/21 season will look like and when it will happen, I wanted to focus a little bit of time on something that will be taking place after the next season: the Expansion Draft for the Seattle Kraken. The Oilers walked away from the Vegas Golden Knights expansion draft largely unharmed. They lost Griffin Reinhart who was nothing more than a depth defenseman at that point and the only other notable player they could have lost was Jujhar Kh

Fan creates website to share stories and honour Joey Moss

Fan creates website to share stories and honour Joey Moss

This morning, I was looking around the Internet for something to write about when I stumbled across JoeyForever.ca, a website created as a place for fans to share their stories and memories about the great Joey Moss. Brian MacKay, the man behind the YMMfire.ca website that helped people search for accommodations after fleeing the wildfires in Fort McMurray a few years ago, noticed that there wasn’t really a place for fans to share their stories and memories of Joey Moss after his passing earl

NHL History: Craig Simpson scores his 100th career goal

It was on this day in NHL history that the Edmonton Oilers forward, Craig Simpson, scored his 100th career goal in a 5-2 loss against the Chicago Blackhawks. On October 30th, 1988, Craig Simpson recorded the 100th goal of his career at 13:59 of the first period in what turned out to be a losing effort against the Chicago Blackhawks. The goal, scored on future broadcaster Darren Pang, was Simpson’s seventh marker of the season and a small part of the reason he went on to his best-ever season

Ken Holland’s signings, Dylan Holloway joins current Oil King on WJHC invite list, trading Adam Larsson, Drake Caggiula, 2012 re-draft, and MORE! Morning, folks!

Relentless

Relentless

So the old Boston Bruins had this winger named Wayne Cashman and he was a load. Although he lacked the skill of high-end players, he could dig the puck out, score some goals and play a fierce brand of hockey. On those Orr Bruins teams, if the crowd made a loud “OH!” noise, chances are Cashman did something to someone which may or may not have been caught on tape. For @TheAthleticCAN Claude Julien and Todd Nelson were the two best AHL coaches of Edmonton's prospects 2000-18. On ave
