Oilers Head Coach Dallas Eakins is returning for his second season at the helm and his players are grateful for the consistency.
“That’s a really nice way to go into the year,” Taylor Hall said. “Like I said at the end of the year, there is no awkward handshake at the start.”
Without having to start over, the Oilers have the opportunity to just hit the ground running.
“It’s a business-like attitude and let’s get this thing going. Dallas feels very comfortable in that way and I think all of us players, over the course of 82 games last year, got to know what Dallas expects from us. Now we can hit the ground running at camp.”
