Hockey Canada and Hockey Culture Needs to Change

Rarely is sexual abuse covered as publicly as we’ve seen with the case(s) involving Hockey Canada. Even when former CHL head coach Graham James’ history of abuse, which spanned decades, came to light, there was no House of Commons committee. Maybe this is a sign that the hockey community, and society overall, is ready to face and discuss the rampant issue of rape and sexual abuse. Sadly, we have seen very little progress in how society views these deplorable events. Victims and survivors of

After a 40-year career with the Edmonton Oilers, Kevin Lowe has announced his retirement

College Men

College Men

The Edmonton Oilers have enjoyed success from college draft picks over the years. Glenn Anderson (Denver) and Shawn Horcoff (Michigan State) played more than 1,000 games in the NHL, and men like Mike Comrie (Michigan), Shjon Podein (Minnesota-Duluth), Tyler Pitlick (Minnesota-Mankato) and Brad Werenka (Northern Michigan) had NHL careers. Since Ken Holland arrived in Edmonton, the Oilers have drafted three college men in four drafts. Is it worth the investment? The Edmonton Oilers are

The Next Four

Given how high he set the bar during his first season, at least part of one, with the Edmonton Oilers, it’s going to be a tall order for Evander Kane to replicate that during the new four-year, $20.5 million contract he inked with the Oilers last month. And that’s OK. If Kane, who is approaching hockey’s version of middle age – he’s celebrating his 31st birthday today — can produce even a reasonable facsimile of what we saw from him in 2021-22 for the $5.125 AAV he’s getting, he

NHL Rumors – Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers Musings

Welcome to our daily rumours article brought to you by Betway Sports What are the Philadelphia Flyers doing? Charlie O’Connor of The Athletic (mailbag): August is often when the NHL wilderness gets to be more and more apparent. Philadelphia Flyers and their fans have many, many concerns after this offseason from Chuck Fletcher so far.

News and notes: Six days until Kailer Yamamoto’s arbitration hearing, Todd Marchant hired in San Jose and more

The days are ticking away for the Edmonton Oilers and Kailer Yamamoto to sign a contract ahead of arbitration. Jesse Puljujarvi and the Oilers got a one-year, $3-million deal done last week avoiding arbitration, and the Oilers will surely be trying to make the same happen with Yamamoto. There should be some solace found, however, as I find it hard to imagine Yamamoto getting more. Puljujarvi (.55 ppg) was ever-so-slightly more productive from a points-per-game perspective than Yamamoto (.506),

Canada Dominates Switzerland on Night One of the Hlinka Gretzky Cup

Canada’s quest for gold got off to a perfect start in Red Deer, beating Switzerland 14-0, not a typo, in their first game of the Hlinka Gretzky Cup.  More than half of Canada’s goals came in the opening period, with Colby Barlow getting the first on a shorthanded breakaway. Barlow scored a second in the period and soon joined Carson Rehkopf, Brayden Yager, Matthew Wood, Andrew Cristall, and Ethan Gauthier, who scored twice. Sixteen players scored a point in the first period for Canada, inc
