History tells Holland not to rule out Puljujarvi returning to Edmonton

Six games into 2019-20, the Ken Holland era in Edmonton is off to a successful start. With a 5-1 record so far, the future certainly looks bright for the Edmonton Oilers — but questions still remain as to whether that future will involve estranged winger Jesse Puljujarvi. Holland said during an appearance on Hockey Central on Wednesday that he doesn’t know what the future holds for the club and their 2016 first-rounder, recounting the events between the Oilers and Puljujarvi that have unf

Mounting injuries to give Oilers true test of their progress

Mounting injuries to give Oilers true test of their progress

EDMONTON — First, the Edmonton Oilers lost defenceman Adam Larsson for two months after Game 1 of the season. Now, six games in, it’s speedy depth forward Joakim Nygard, gone for two to four weeks with a rib injury. When the depth begins to get tested, it can go one of two ways for a National Hockey League team. This is where the teams that fall apart fall apart, and where teams that succeed succeed. “That’s a good way to put it,” head coach Dave Tippett said. “Our two young defence

GDB 7.0: Take Advantage of Home Ice (7:30pm MT, SN360)

Good NHL teams win on the road, but very few good teams are bad at home. The Edmonton Oilers are 2-0 at home this season, and that is the first time they have been 2-0 since October 2010. They haven’t won their first three home games since October 2006, when they won their first six. In the previous four seasons with Connor McDavid on the roster, the Oilers are 81-69-14 on home ice. They sit 25th in home victories, but after two consecutive home wins maybe the Oilers can start to make Edmonto
