general manager Steve Tambellini will be the guest on Thursday's edition of NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman
. The show, which encourages fans to call in with questions, airs Thursday nights on NHL.com and on Sirius XM Radio at 6 p.m. ET.
Heading into their game Thursday night against the Los Angeles Kings
, the Oilers lead the Northwest Division and are tied for first in the Western Conference with a 7-2-2 record. This comes one season after the team finished 30th in the League standings. A fast start by No. 1 pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
, the return of beloved forward Ryan Smyth
and a turnaround season by goalie Nikolai Khabibulin
have all been key factors in Tambellini's club's fast start.
