Penguins trade Hornqvist to Panthers for Matheson, Sceviour

PITTSBURGH — Patric Hornqvist‘s grit helped the Pittsburgh Penguins win a pair of Stanley Cups. To keep their championship window opened, they decided it was time to move on without him. The Penguins traded the 33-year-old forward to Florida on Thursday in exchange for Mike Matheson and forward Colton Sceviour. Hornqvist spent six seasons in Pittsburgh after being acquired in a 2014 trade that sent James Neal to Nashville. Known for his hard-nosed play around the net, Hornqvist scored 132 g

The Oilers squared up against the Winnipeg Jets, who just came into the league alongside the Oilers in the WHA merger. The Oilers, however, fell to the Jets 4-2.

Can the Oilers Improve Internally?

Can the Oilers Improve Internally?

An uninspired four games against Chicago in the qualifying round doesn’t erase the positive strides the Edmonton Oilers made in the 71-game regular season. Often in hockey, a team can learn more from an embarrassing performance. No one wants a painful life lesson, but many teams have had to endure them.
