FEATURE: Simply Generational

"That expectation factor of being great every night, the pressure to go out there and do it, is another element that a lot of players don't ever get to," Head Coach Dave Tippett said

by Tony Brar / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - In an era where the talent in hockey is exceptional, we are witnessing a generational one here in Edmonton.

At 24 years old, Connor McDavid has seemingly entered his prime, at least on paper. Yet, when you look at his body of work through his first six seasons, the question becomes, "just how much better can he really get?"

Two Hart Trophies, three Ted Lindsays, three Art Ross titles and likely a Calder Memorial Trophy as a rookie in 2015-16 if not for a broken collarbone against the Philadelphia Flyers. Over 400 games, 574 points and 195 goals coming into 2021-22 and somehow, the signs continue to point skyward in McDavid's progression through five games.

RELEASE: McDavid named NHL's Second Star of the Week

Oilers captain collects three goals and five assists in three games to take over top spot in league scoring with 13 points

by Press Release / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - Oilers captain Connor McDavid has been selected as the NHL's Second Star of the Week after scoring three goals and five assists in three games.

McDavid tallied once and picked up a pair of helpers during Edmonton's 6-5 win over Anaheim at home last Tuesday, scored twice with one assist during the 5-1 road drubbing over Arizona on Thursday, and chipped in with a pair of helpers during the 5-3 decision in Vegas on Saturday.

He hit the 200-goal milestone for his career in the win over the Coyotes. Among players to make their NHL debut with Edmonton, only three required fewer games than McDavid (411 GP) to reach the 200-goal mark with the franchise: Wayne Gretzky (242), Jari Kurri (328) and Glenn Anderson (348).

The league's leading scorer and most valuable player from last season has picked up right where he left off, setting the pace with six goals and seven assists through five games.

McDavid scored 105 points in 56 games during the shortened 2020-21 campaign and is currently on pace for 213 points over an 82-game schedule this season.

Winnipeg's Kyle Connor was named First Star of the Week with five goals and three assists in three games, while New York Islanders goaltender Ilya Sorokin rounded out the trio.

GAME STORY: Oilers 5, Golden Knights 3

A pair of goals from Zach Hyman helps keep Edmonton's hot start going at 5-0-0 in a win over the Golden Knights on Friday

by Jamie Umbach / EdmontonOilers.com

LAS VEGAS, NV - The Edmonton Oilers have their Hype Man.

Zach Hyman notched a pair of goals on Friday night in Sin City to make it five goals in five games to begin his Oilers tenure as the club earned their fifth-straight victory to start the 2021-22 NHL campaign with a 5-3 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

Playing the second of back-to-back games as part of their first road trip of the campaign, the Oilers stole the show with an early statement win over their Pacific Division opponents.

Zack Kassian slid the game-winning goal through the legs of Golden Knights netminder Robin Lehner on a breakaway 4:33 into the final frame. Mikko Koskinen turned in his third-straight victory, making 36 saves on 39 shots.

Leon Draisaitl recorded two goals and an assist to increase his early-season returns to 11 points in five games, while Connor McDavid's two assists on the night place him first overall for points in the NHL above the German with six goals and seven helpers.

The German scored twice and added two helpers, while Connor McDavid posted a goal and two assists in a contest that saw the Oilers trail heading into the second intermission and come from behind to claim the two points with three goals in the final 20 minutes.

Mikko Koskinen recorded his first win of the campaign with 20 saves on 21 shots in relief of Mike Smith, who left the game in the middle frame due to injury.

GENE'S BLOG: FAN-tastic Start

In his latest blog, Gene Principe recaps a riveting opening week of the 2021-22 season for the Edmonton Oilers

by Gene Principe / EdmontonOilers.com

It's been quite the opening week to the 2021-22 NHL season.

A lot has happened around the League and it's been no different in Edmonton.

I shouldn't have needed a reminder but I got one last Wednesday night about the importance of hockey. With Vancouver set as the opponent on opening night, I arrived at the rink for a little television time on Sportsnet with Tim & Friends. It was 4pm. Game time was 8pm. I saw fans wearing their Oilers jerseys milling around outside Rogers Place. I saw more fans at that moment than I had seen in one playoff bubble and one shortened season. It was always so quiet, but not anymore.

It certainly helps that the local team has put together back-to-back wins over Canadian counterparts. In the opener, after a warm welcome back, they took an early lead to give the fans something to holler about. Long-awaited cheers that eventually saw a wide-open overtime and a shootout win. 

Video: OILERS TODAY | Post-Game vs CGY 10.16.21

Saturday was the continuation of the Battle of Alberta and it was epic. The first period felt like a playoff period. Intense, action-packed, filled with drama and urgency to get the upper hand. Edmonton got it and never gave it back to Calgary in a 5-2 victory that was a fresh reminder of why we love seeing one of the greatest rivalries in sport. 

One of the great areas in Rogers Place is the Oilers Hall of Fame Room. It is overflowing with the history of the franchise. Old skates, helmets, stalls, jerseys and so much more are neatly placed together on display for people to see. It really is a showcase of the franchise's past. I wouldn't forget the five Stanley Cup replicas and team pictures that sit individually for each victory right in front of the windows.

The room is near the main entrance to the building and sits right along 104 Avenue and between 102 and 103 Street. From inside or outside, you can peer inside the room. 

The scene on Saturday night was wonderful. First, there was what happened in the building as Captain Connor McDavid tallied a hat trick. Then, there was what happened outside the building. Fans could be heard blocks away chanting, screaming and supporting their team. It jumped up a level when the Oilers started their post-game interviews.

First up was Leon Draisaitl and Jesse Puljujarvi. While the players were answering questions the fans were chanting, "Jesse, Jesse, Jesse!" The Finnish forward smiled (he's always smiling) and acknowledged the fans for their support. 

Next came McDavid and Warren Foegele. Along with " Stanley Cup" came a serenading "MVP, MVP, MVP" for McDavid. It was unreal and surreal all at the same time. Foegele, the new Oiler and former Carolina Hurricane, shook his head in disbelief and acknowledged the moment from where he sat. 

The players missed the fans and the fans felt the same way about their hockey-playing heroes. It really was a nice reminder of what has not been possible in a normal sporting event scenario. In so many ways and for so many reasons, the Edmonton Oilers have already had a FAN-tastic start to their season.

GAME RECAP: Oilers 5, Flames 2

Connor McDavid's hat trick headlines Saturday's return of fans to the Battle of Alberta in a 5-2 Oilers victory over the Flames

by Jamie Umbach / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - Welcome back to the Battle of Alberta, fans.

Connor McDavid recorded his 11th career hat trick on Saturday night at Rogers Place as fans of both sides of hockey's greatest rivalry were back in the stands at Rogers Place to witness the Oilers put five goals past their provincial rivals in a 5-2 victory over the Calgary Flames.

Mike Smith backstopped the Oilers strongly for the second-straight game with 45 saves on 47 shots, while Leon Draisaitl played the supporting role with three assists. Jesse Puljujarvi chipped in with a goal and two assists, and Derek Ryan scored his first goal in an Oilers uniform to open the scoring in the first period as the Oilers improved to 2-0 to begin the '21-22 NHL campaign.

BLOG: Friday's practice at Rogers Place

The Oilers took part in a full practice on Friday ahead of tomorrow's Battle of Alberta

by Staff / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - The Edmonton Oilers held practiced at Rogers Place on Friday afternoon ahead of hosting the Calgary Flames in tomorrow night's Battle of Alberta.

Zack Kassian was back participating in full, skating on a line with Warren Foegele and Derek Ryan. The forward said in his post-practice media availability that he feels ready to go after going through concussion protocol following a fight during last Thursday's pre-season win over Vancouver as he awaits official clearance from team doctors for the go-ahead to suit up on Saturday. 

Ryan McLeod centred the fourth line between Brendan Perlini and Kyle Turris as Devin Shore was not on the ice with the main group. Head Coach Dave Tippett said that Saturday's game will come too soon for Shore to recover from a nagging undisclosed injury and is hopeful to have the 27-year-old available next week on Tuesday against the Anaheim Ducks.  

Slater Koekkoek joined Evan Bouchard on the Oilers third defensive pairing after the defender missed out in favour of Kris Russell in Wednesday night's 3-2 Opening Night shootout victory over the Canucks. Tippett is leaning towards making the lineup change on Saturday in a bid to get everyone up and going with ice time early in the season.

Goaltender Mike Smith, after making 36 saves on 38 shots on Wednesday, is slated to get the start in back-to-back games to begin the season.

    BLOG: Regular season return

    "To get back to a normal schedule with fans, everybody is looking forward to that," Coach Tippett said of the return to an 82-game regular season

    by Paul Gazzola / EdmontonOilers.com

    EDMONTON, AB - The artificial crowd noise has been silenced and North Division miniseries matchups are a thing of the past. No more empty arenas and - fingers crossed - fewer Zoom interviews.

    National Hockey League fans have returned to arenas and the Edmonton Oilers have been assigned back to the Pacific Division. 

    Slowly but surely, the hockey world is settling back on its axis and members of the Orange & Blue are eager for the prospect of normalcy in the upcoming 2021-22 season. Travelling to the United States, connecting with fans and facing each League opponent are aspects that the team is looking forward to when the puck drops on Wednesday.

    Video: RAW | Tyson Barrie 10.11.21

    "The Battle of Alberta was fun, but ten times was probably a bit much," joked defenceman Tyson Barrie, who signed a three-year contract with the club in the off-season after leading all rearguards in points last year with 48. 

    "It will be nice to get back to our normal divisions. Even to have the fans here in pre-season, it was very invigorating. It's a good matchup for our team to get back into our division and conference, too."

    A customary NHL schedule means an 82-game slate, as opposed to last season's 56-game irregular season, as well as a busy travel itinerary with road trips across North America. Even with newborn son Leo joining the Barrie family and demanding attention at home, the offensive defenceman is excited to dust off his passport and be a tourist again.

    "There are so many good rinks and spots around the League," Barrie, the former Colorado Avalanche and Toronto Maple Leaf, said. "It's exciting to get back to that. It will be cool to play in Seattle for the first time and to see the new rink. Vegas is always a crazy one. There are so many good cities, it's hard to name them all."

    Barrie isn't the only one pleased to welcome a real regular season. Head Coach Dave Tippett detailed his outlook on the upcoming campaign and what, specifically, he is anticipating fondly. 

    Video: RAW | Dave Tippett 10.11.21

    "I think for all the players and coaches, there are two key things: One, fans. We didn't get to be part of any fans last year, so that's a big part of it," he started.

    "And two, just getting back to a normal schedule where you're playing other teams. You're enthused to go into Vegas; you're enthused to go into Seattle. It will be a fun game just because they're new."

    Like point-producing blueliner Barrie, the Oilers coach has circled select dates and road swings on the calendar. As a former Senior Advisor with the Kraken, Tippett will get an opportunity to see the 32nd NHL franchise and what they have built on Dec. 3 and Dec. 18 when Edmonton makes visits to the Pacific Northwest. "It will be a fun game for me to go there, just to see the building and stuff," he said. 

    But a return to common practices, such as touring, battling with every team and interacting with fans, is unbeatable. 

    "To get back to a normal schedule with fans, everybody is looking forward to that," Tippett said.

    BLOG: Tippett mulls difficult roster decisions

    Head Coach Dave Tippett spoke towards making some tough choices when finalizing the Oilers roster for Opening Night

    by Jamie Umbach / EdmontonOilers.com

    EDMONTON, AB - The wide array of talent at Oilers Training Camp worthy of a spot in the lineup on Opening Night meant there would be no easy decisions when it came down to finalizing the club's roster on Monday.

    Factor in not having the availability of a taxi squad this season, and the choices became even more difficult.

    "It was a unique year with the taxi squad," Head Coach Dave Tippett said. "You knew you could carry so many bodies, so really there weren't as many hard decisions last year because there was going to be extra guys. This year, it came down to some hard decisions."

    On Monday, from the extended list of 61 players who began Training Camp on Sept. 22, the Oilers solidified their 23-man roster that will begin the 82-game regular season starting Wednesday when the Vancouver Canucks visit Rogers Place.

    Each of the 36 forwards, 18 defencemen, and seven goaltenders at Camp arrived with similar intentions of cracking the lineup, and the hard choices made by Tippett and Oilers management are signs of healthy depth in the organization.

    "It's the meaning of Training Camp," Tippett said. "If a coach goes out there and tells a player they have a chance to make our team, the player feels like he has a legitimate chance to do that.

    "To me with the Opening Night roster, there are players who are obviously going to be on that, but the ones that are on the bubble, they're going to have to earn it. That's what's happening in our camp, and I think that's a good thing."

    GENE'S BLOG: Thankful for the return of Oilers hockey

    Gene Principe enjoys some Thanksgiving leftovers and sets the table for the 2021-22 season, touching on the team's main courses and new side dishes

    by Gene Principe / EdmontonOilers.com

    I woke up this morning feeling full. In fact, stuffed, kind of like the turkey we had to celebrate Thanksgiving. You know me, I can be kind of corny which was also on the menu. Throw in mashed potatoes, gravy, bread (sorry, Italian thing), peas, stuffing, salad, cranberry (insert Tyson Barrie reference if you'd like), pumpkin pie topped with ice cream and whipped cream and that about covers it.

    We actually forgot to cook the ham, otherwise that would have been another addition to the menu. It was a feast to be thankful for and this looks like a season that the Edmonton Oilers will be thankful for as the 2021-22 NHL season arrives.

    Let's just say Connor McDavid set the table for the season a month ago when he said four little words that when you string them together have a big impact: "The time is now." It was during the captain's September skates at Rogers Place that he was asked about the season. He used a total of 12 letters to make his stance abundantly clear.

    Connor is becoming more and more comfortable in explaining how he feels and what he thinks about his team and his league. He's not the only player in it, but he's within a handful of NHLers (Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Patrick Kane, Nathan McKinnon, to name a few) that have elevated themselves to a pedestal of power with their words and actions making a difference.

    It's what he's done from childhood to adulthood. It's what he continues to do. A general (or captain in this case) is only as good as his soldiers.

    Lagesson, a fourth-round pick by the Oilers in 2014, has recorded two assists and 27 penalty minutes in 27 career games for the Oilers after making his NHL debut during the '19-20 NHL season. In 102 regular-season and playoff games with the Bakersfield Condors in the American Hockey League, the Göteborg, Swe. product has contributed 13 goals and 28 assists.

    Turris signed with the Oilers on October 9, 2020 and has suited up in 27 games for the club, posting two goals and three assists. Across 822 career NHL games with the Phoenix Coyotes, Ottawa Senators, Nashville Predators and Oilers, the New Westminster, BC product has recorded 181 goals and 271 assists.

    Skinner returns to Bakersfield for the upcoming AHL campaign having stopped 69 of 75 shots for a .920 save percentage this preseason with the Oilers, including a 39-save performance in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Seattle Kraken in Kent, Wash. back on October 1.

    The Oilers begin their regular-season schedule on Wednesday, Oct. 13 when the Vancouver Canucks visit Rogers Place.
