Canada Advance to the Gold Medal Game

Team Canada is heading back to the Hlinka Gretzky Cup final for the first time since 2018 after beating Finland 4-1. If it weren’t for Scott Ratzlaff, Team Canada would’ve found themselves down for the first time at the Hlinka Gretzky in the first period. Ratzlaff stopped seven shots in the opening frame, with most of them being grade-a chances. The Canadians left it late but took the lead into the intermission. Ethan Gauthier forced his way to the front of the net through traffic and beat

Bullitt!

Bullitt!

The Edmonton Oilers drafted Ryan McLeod in the second round of the 2018 entry draft. His draft day scouting report mentioned tremendous speed, but as Red Line reported “too careful about going into heavy traffic and taking the puck to the net.” He was projected as a solid third-line player who would chip in offensively. He appears to be on his way to filling that role at the NHL level, but there’s a chance he’ll land higher. McLeod’s main weapon, speed, becomes more valuable every yea

NHL Rumors: Tyson Barrie, and John Klingberg

Welcome to our daily rumours article brought to you by Betway Sports  Tyson Barrie more likely than not to remain with the Oilers David Staples of the Edmonton Journal: Before Duncan Keith retired, believed the Edmonton Oilers could trade defenseman Tyson Barrie. If the Oilers were to move him now, they’d be a lot thinner on the right side. His trade value wasn’t as high this offseason given the players that had been/are possibly available. Even if they were to find a team who would be int

Who’s left for the Edmonton Oilers to sign in free agency?

The work is far from over for the Edmonton Oilers. Yes, Jesse Puljujarvi and Kailer Yamamoto have been inked to new deals, but Ryan McLeod and Tyler Benson still need new deals. As has been mentioned, the Oilers are already at the salary cap even when accounting for Mike Smith and Oscar Klefbom heading for the LTIR. So something has to give. I still think Warren Foegele is the most likely candidate to be moved, but Tyson Barrie would be the smartest. If the Oilers could move both, that would b
