In Depth: Bien Voyage

by Cait MacPhail / EdmontonOilers.com

Growing up in Canada often means at least some exposure to the French language. Be it actual fluency or at least the retention of casual greetings or phrases often learned in school that tend to stick for most Canadians outside of Quebec.

To someone who fits the description of the latter, at first glance the two words, "Bien Voyage," would appear to simply mean some form of, "good journey" or "good voyage."

From French to English it can also be interpreted as "well-traveled."

And for Oilers defenceman Yohann Auvitu, either translation fits all the same.

It's been quite the journey for the well-traveled man from the suburbs of Paris.

BLOG: McLellan notches 400th career win

by Cait MacPhail / EdmontonOilers.com

CALGARY, AB - A wild finish to the latest edition of the Battle of Alberta on Saturday night saw the Flames nearly complete a five-goal comeback in the final frame. The Oilers did pull out the 7-5 win and while it wasn't the kind of win that might have been expected after 40 minutes with a 5-1 lead, it was a win nonetheless, and the 400th of Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan's career.

"It means I've got grey hair," the always-humble McLellan joked when first asked what it means to hit such a milestone.

 "But I'll tell you what, it's a honour to be in this league and 400 is a pretty small number when you look at what some of the long-term coaches have got. I've got a long way to go… But it's a small milestone but I'm glad I got to do it with this group." 

Todd McLellan's all-time coaching record now sits at 400-246-85 spread over 10 seasons between the San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers.
