The Oilers are prepared to embark on a two-game road trip that will see them make stops in Denver and Arizona for games against the Avalanche and Coyotes. The Oilers are happy to be taking a two-game win streak and the top spot in the Pacific Division with them on the trip.
But that's not all the players will have joining them on the five-day jaunt. Some of the players will be joined by their fathers for the team's Dads' Trip.
Connor McDavid voiced his excitement of having his father Brian enjoy his first dads' trip alongside the rest of the players' fathers.
"I know my dad's really excited about it and I'm very happy to have him on the trip," said the Oilers captain. "He's done so much for me in my hockey career and in my life, so it's kind of a nice way to spend the week with him and he gets to kind of see how we live and what our day-to-day life is like."
