Whitney's Own Goal Perfectly Summarizes His Season

Ryan Whitney's own goal in the dying seconds of last nights game is, in a strange way, perfect.

After 4,000 Shots, How Does Dubnyk Look?

On Monday night Devan Dubnyk faced shot number 4,000 in his career. That volume of shots, not to mention having played in 133 games, starts to give us an idea of just exactly who the real Devan Dubnyk is. The signs are encouraging.

WHL Second Round Preview - Oil Kings vs Tigers

After rolling over the Ice in five games, the Oil Kings start their second round series against the Medicine Hat Tigers tonight.

Vancouver Rolls Over The Oilers

There was joy in Oilerville last night when fans were able to look at the standings and see their team sitting in eighth place. Unfortunately the good times wouldn't last more than a night thanks to a Canucks team that was better in every way.

The Oilers and Wasted Contracts

The Oilers seem to give anyone and everyone a contract. This is a problem. Seeing the mistakes of their past I would have hoped the Oilers would have learnt something and not made the same mistake again. Instead they signed Ewanyk.

Another Halfhearted Effort And Another Loss

With the Oilers playoff hope getting slimmer by the day the Oilers decided to coast through two periods in Nashville tonight. Unfortunately, a good third period wasn't enough to salvage the game.

Oil Kings vs Ice - WHL Playoffs Preview

The Oil Kings kick off their opening round series against the Kootenay Ice tonight at Rexall Place.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - #3 In The Top 25 Under 25

The Top 25 Under 25 continues with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Magnus Paajarvi - #7 In The Top 25 Under 25

A lot of things happen during a game, some of which matter and lot that don't, but in the end the game comes down to goals. To that end the more good hockey players you have the better and regardless of what some Paajarvi is a good hockey player.

Oilers Acquire Mike Brown From Toronto

The Oilers announced this morning that they've made a trade with the Maple Leafs acquiring forward Mike Brown in exchange for a fourth round pick in the 2014 draft. This move doesn't make the Oilers better but it does increase the amount of punching.

David Musil - #11 In The Top 25 Under 25

When it comes to projecting prospects the only type of player more difficult to place than a goalie is the big defensive defenceman. David Musil, the prospect we ranked at #11 in the Top 25 UInder 25, is just that kind of player.

Another Loss For The Oilers, Another OT Point

Despite having the lead after two periods the Oilers were unable to hold off the Blackhawks in the third. They did force the game to overtime though so at least the Bettman point is some sort of small consolation.

Taylor Fedun - #16 In The Top 25 Under 25

After being on the bubble in the Top 25 Under 25 last summer, Taylor Fedun now finds himself ranked at #16. Will he continue to climb and eventually land himself a spot in the NHL with the Oilers?

Shots, goals, & possession for the Oilers so far

A game by game look at the numbers through the first quarter of the season.

The Forwards At The 1/4 Point: Where's The Scoring

Wasn't this group of forwards supposed to be exciting, filling tho opponents net with puck? I thought that was the case but through the first twelve games of the season that just hasn't happened.

A Look At The Oilers Defence So Far This Season

With a quarter of the Oilers season in the books we take a look how the defence has played so far. By my eye the defence has been equal parts good, bad, and ugly. Well, maybe not equal parts.

The Oilers put Darcy Hordichuk on waivers.

A somewhat surprising announcement this morning that the Oilers have placed noted bench warmer/enforcer Darcy Hordichuk on waivers.

At The Quarter Point: A Look At The Goaltenders

Just three weeks ago the Oilers started their season on the road in Vancouver. Now, a quarter of the lockout shortened season is already in the rearview mirror. And so it's time to take a look back and see how things have gone. Up first, the goalies.

Oilers Call Up Another Centre From The Barons

The seemingly constant rotation of centres between the Oilers and Barons continues. This time it's Chris VandeVelde getting the call.

Nugent-Hopkins Absent From The Morning Skate

No Horcoff. No Belanger. And now no Nugent-Hopkins? This is getting ridiculous.

QuoteShot

Henrik Sedin’s +24 is the most registered against the Oilers this year — he was on the ice for 34 shots for, and 10 against. The rest of the roster could have been playing dungeons and dragons, considering how effective that line was.

Oilers Recall Mark Arcobello From OKC

In the wake of the injury to captain Shawn Horcoff the Oilers have placed a call to Oklahoma City and called up Mark Arcobello.

Shawn Horcoff Breaks A Knuckle

The injury bug continues to bite the Oilers. This time it's Shawn Horcoff who has been lost for an extended period of time.

Edmonton Lets A Point Get Away, Falls In Overtime

The Oilers let a two goal lead slip away dropping tonight's game 3-2 to the Canucks in overtime.

Game Thread: Oilers @ Sharks - This Could Get Ugly

The Oilers head into San Jose tonight to take on the Sharks. The puck hasn't even dropped yet and already things look ugly for the visitors.

Horcoff Out Of Tonight's Game; Lander Recalled

Against the red hot Sharks the Oilers will be without the services of the only centre who was able to slow them down the last time around.

Oilers Top Coyotes 2-1: Yakupov Strikes Again

For the second time in a week Nail Yakupov scored a big goal for the Oilers by knocking the puck out of the air. If this hockey thing doesn't work out for him there's a chance he could make it as a baseball player.

Oilers and Coyotes Battle In The Desert

The Oilers head into Phoenix tonight to take on the Coyotes. Coming off a 4-1 win over the Avalanche on Monday night the Oilers are looking to start their first winning streak of the season.

Oilers Play Solid For Two; Hold On For The Win

Two strong periods and another strong night from the power play - which lead the way with all four goals - were all the Oilers needed as they bounced back from a loss on Saturday night to beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 on home ice.

Game Thread: Avalanche at Oilers

So far the Oilers season has followed a good game - bad game pattern Hopefully that continues tonight.
