Colby Cave’s memory lives on with family, Oilers a year after tragic death

Colby Cave’s memory lives on with family, Oilers a year after tragic death

EDMONTON — It is so patently unfair, so abjectly heartbreaking whenever somebody this promising – and of such strong character — dies at such a young age. Whether or not Colby Cave was a National Hockey League player — first a Boston Bruin and then an Edmonton Oiler — a farm kid from Saskatchewan ranching country, or Emily’s husband, it defines tragic that a 27-year-old widow was tasked with delivering a eulogy for her husband on Saturday, a man to whom she was married for less tha

Oilersnation Pre Game Podcast – Game 42 vs Calgary

The Oilers will be eyeing up their sixth win of the season over the Calgary Flames tonight, something they haven’t done since 1985-86. The Flames are pretty much out of the playoff race but you know they’ll still be fired up for the chance to beat their provincial rivals. The Battle of Alberta hasn’t been as spicy as it was last season, but there have been some heated moments and I’m sure the Flames haven’t forgotten how Mike Smith celebrated the last victory by yelling right at Matt

NHL Rumors: It’s Not Going To Be Easy For The Edmonton Oilers To Add At The Trade Deadline

Pierre LeBrun of the Athletic: The Edmonton Oilers are already without their second-, third-, and fifth-round picks in the 2021 NHL draft. Their fourth-round pick may be used to find a rental, bottom-six forward. Detroit Red Wings Luke Glendening could be a fit. The Oilers may not be looking to add depth though. “Sometimes at the trade deadline, you acquire depth, but because we have a 29-man roster (including taxi squad), I’m not making any moves between now and Monday for depth,’’ Ho
