EDMONTON, AB - Drop the puck already.

Because the Oilers centres are having a time in the faceoff dot.

After two pre-season games, the Orange & Blue pivots have flexed in the faceoff circle, an area Head Coach Dave Tippett has been vocal about since joining the squad.

In Edmonton's 2-0 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday, the team won 52 percent of their draws. Colby Cave led the way with a 62 percent showing, while recent signee Riley Sheahan was next in line at 50 percent.

MAIN CAMP: Larsson fit for revival

Adam Larsson returned to Edmonton for Oilers Main Camp in exceptional shape and with the mental weight after an underachieving season off his shoulders

by Jamie Umbach / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - By Adam Larsson's standards, the 2018-19 NHL season was a down year.

In fairness, the Swedish d-man would always be the first to make it known.

Oilers Main Camp signalled new beginnings for the 26-year-old, who's coming into the new season physically refreshed, stronger, and with the mental weight of an underachieving season of 20 points (3G, 17A) and a -28 plus/minus rating in 82 games off his shoulders.

Inspired by the latest fashion trends, the Oilers' ADIZERO alternate jerseys take an entirely new approach to the Oilers' classic uniforms by highlighting hockey culture and amplifying street style. The new jerseys transform the Oilers' traditional orange, blue and white colorway into a modern two-tone color palette and create a futuristic look with minimalistic design elements. The result is a jersey that allows fans to support their team anytime and anywhere.

  • To emphasize a trending minimalistic look, the Oilers omit using any white accents - a first in Oilers uniform history. The modern, two-tone color palette is dominated by a dark navy blue.
  • Minimal striping, enlarged embellishments and high-contrast colorways create an ultra-modern, street-inspired look.
  • Symmetrical striping is embroidered along the uniform's collar, upper sleeves, wrist, and hem line.
  • The crest substitutes its outlines with size: The numbers are 15% larger and rendered in glossy twill and embroidery.
  • Merging modernity with legacy, the outlines of the Oilers classic crest are removed to be depicted in just two colors.

The Oilers open the 2019-20 regular season on Wednesday, October 2, the opening night of the NHL regular season. The Oilers face off against division rivals, the Vancouver Canucks at 8:00 PM.

Tickets for all Oilers pre-season and regular season home games are currently on sale through EdmontonOilers.com or 780-414-GOAL (4625).
