First Impressions: Good and Bad

Research has shown that people form conclusions — which rarely change — the moment they see or hear another person for the first time. It is an interesting phenomenon, and one that definitely exists in sports. However, I do believe some people will change their original opinions on players, but often it takes a long time and usually their first impression remains in their subconscious and when they see a play that reminds them of their original evaluation, it surfaces. Here is an interesti

Oilers Prospect Report: Bourgault starts season hot

The Edmonton Oilers opened up their 2021-22 campaign with a win last night but in typical Oilers fashion. Hold a comfortable lead for most of the game, giving everyone hope, and then blow it late in the third. Thankfully, Mike Smith made some big stops, and Kyle Turris buried his shootout goal to give them a 3-2 victory.  While they didn’t contribute massively on the boxscore last night, it’s promising to see how many young players are on the roster right now.

Welcome Back

Hockey isn’t meant to be played in empty buildings with tarped sections of seats and piped in crowd noise. It’s meant to be played as it was last night, with a revved-up Mike Smith pumping his arm to celebrate a 3-2 shootout victory over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Place with, as a bonus, La Bamba blaring in the aftermath. So it went as the Edmonton Oilers opened their 2021-22 schedule with live bodies in the seats, two points and all the storylines you could hope for in a debut like t

Highlights and Numbers: Oilers outplay Canucks at even-strength, Zach Hyman shines in debut

We’re back! The Oilers kicked off their 2021-22 season by hosting the Vancouver Canucks, a team that, just like them, underwent some pretty significant changes to their roster over the summer. Vancouver was miserable in all the All-Canadian Division last year, finishing dead last in the standings due in part to a month-long battle with a COVID outbreak. They added Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Conor Garland, and Tucker Poolman in the offseason and have a healthy Elias Pettersson in the mix and the C
