Leon Draisaitl Takes Art Ross Trophy In Shortened 2019-20 Regular Season

Business as usual for Leon | Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports Deutschland Dangler compiles 110 points in shortened season There are lots of things that we don’t know about the NHL’s Return To Play. When will games be played? Where will they be played? Will they even be played? Do the 8 teams that lose the “play-in” series get to count those play-ins as a playoff appearance? Like I said, plenty of things that we’ve still got to hash out. One thing I’m sure of? Leon Draisaitl

Worst Oilers Trades Countdown – No. 2: Goodbye, Smytty

The Oilers were just one win away from being at the top of the hockey world in 2006, but it all came crashing down. And it didn’t stop. The team went on an improbable, wild run through the playoffs that spring, taking down the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Red Wings and the Sharks and Mighty Ducks before eventually losing in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final to the Carolina Hurricanes. It was a heartbreaking end to an incredible story. Unfortunately, there would be plenty more heartbreak on the

On Thursday afternoon, Connor McDavid and Darnell Nurse jumped on a Zoom call with reporters to talk about the NHL’s return to ice plan, the 24-team playoff format, and what it was like to be involved in that process. As we all know, Connor McDavid is one of the most well known and marketable faces the league has in its stables, so it was no surprise to see the 23-year-old captain included in the NHL’s return to play committee alongside John Tavares, Ron Hainsey, Mark Scheifele and James v

What Will The Oilers Playoff Roster Look Like?

What Will The Oilers Playoff Roster Look Like?

When the puck drops on the Edmonton Oilers’ play-in series against the Chicago Blackhawks, things will be very different than they were in March. For one, the games will be held in hub cities with no fans. For another, rosters will be expanded to handle potential injury and illness. The expectation is that teams will be allowed to carry roughly 27 skaters and unlimited goalies. Although nothing is set in stone, this appears to be the direction that the NHL is headed in.

Oilers’ focus on chance to lift Cup won’t be shaken by empty arenas

EDMONTON — There was a time when surviving the first 10 minutes of a playoff game at old Chicago Stadium — and only trailing 1-0 — was a small victory for the visiting team. It was a building that defined home-ice advantage, a bricks-and-mortar intangible that has been passed on to the newer, bigger United Centre, even if somewhat diluted. A Chicago hockey rink is the only sporting venue in my 30 years in the business where fans are encouraged to make noise all the way through the nationa
