IN DEPTH: The Global Game

Oilers fans traveled from near and far to converge in Cologne and Gothenburg and support their team in the NHL Global Series

It was the perfect NHL Global Series moment.

As if eight-year-old Isak Axelsson's day could have gotten any better.

Decked out in his brand new Global Series hat and bright orange and blue Edmonton Oilers hoodie, Isak and his mom had arrived at a Gothenburg pizza café a couple of blocks away from the Scandinavium arena.

They had just finished watching Isak's hockey heroes skate during their open practice at the Scandinavium, one day prior to their first 2018-19 regular season game against the New Jersey Devils.

Hockey. Pizza. Quality time with mom. How do you improve on that?

Enter Swedish-born defencemen Oscar Klefbom and Adam Larsson, arriving at the café to shoot an episode of Oilers TV's new series The Drill.
