GENE'S BLOG: Oscar Award Winner

In his latest blog, Gene Principe takes a look at Oscar Klefbom's team-leading time on ice this season

by Gene Principe / Special to EdmontonOilers.com

And the award for most minutes played by an Edmonton Oilers defenceman goes to...(insert pause and sound of envelope opening)...Oscar Klefbom. In his speech, I'm sure he would thank the coaches for putting him on the ice, his teammates for being there for him and supporting his every shift, the medical and training staff for keeping him healthy, his parents for their love and guidance along the way and maybe even his skates. Without them he wouldn't have the chance to be one of the busiest defenceman in the NHL.

by Paul Gazzola / EdmontonOilers.com

SUNRISE, FL - Sun down in Sunrise.

The Oilers dropped a 4-1 decision to the Florida Panthers Thursday at BB&T Center.

Leon Draisaitl scored 23 seconds into the third period to notch his 10th of the season and Connor McDavid registered a single helper, putting him up to 23 points on the year.

Cam Talbot made 29 saves in the losing effort. Edmonton falls for the third straight on the road, completing the trip 1-3-0 and are now 8-7-1 in the 2018-19 campaign.

"You never want to lose three in a row and you never want to lose back-to-back," said McDavid. "Obviously it's frustrating but we got to regroup here."

FUTURE WATCH: McLeod adopting NHL mindset in Mississauga

The Oilers 2018 second-round pick is putting lessons learned from NHL pre-season into play with the Mississauga Steelheads in a bid to crack World Juniors with Canada

by Jamie Umbach / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - When you find a groove, you roll with it.

During this past Oilers Main Camp and NHL pre-season, centre Ryan McLeod found the formula.

The Mississauga Steelheads forward barely had time to decompress after impressing management and teammates alike with his blazing speed and playmaking ability in four-straight pre-season games with the Oilers back in September, where he recorded three assists.

McLeod's extended stint with the big club meant he'd miss the first two games of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) season, but the lessons learned for the Oilers 2018 second-round selection (40th-overall) would make up the difference. The 19-year-old has since helped his hometown Steelheads recover from a 0-2 start with a goal and five assists in his first four games after going deep into pre-season as one of the Oilers final 16 forwards.
