Oilers' top pick Hall gets No. 4 jersey
The Oilers made a few big announcements Wednesday morning in southwest Edmonton, the first involving a big lottery prize and the others involving big names and numbers in the organization.

Located at a stunning 5,000-square-foot showhome, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation's premiere fundraising initiative -- the Winner's Choice Lottery -- kicked off the announcements. The showhome is the Lottery's magnificent grand prize and, with an virtual sports simulator in the lower level, will make a fabulous home for a lucky Oilers fan.

Among the first to test out the interactive hockey set-up were Oilers first-round picks Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Magnus Paajarvi. The high-profile rookies were invited to check out the home's amenities and also be presented with their long-awaited jersey numbers. Hall was presented with number four, Eberle number 14, and Paajarvi number 91.
