EDMONTON, AB - The Edmonton Oilers announced today that Oklahoma State University star running back and football hero Chuba Hubbard will be in attendance at the Friday, December 20 Oilers game versus the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Affectionately known as "Canada's Cowboy", Hubbard captured the attention of the nation through his exceptional on-field exploits, setting records and trailblazing through the NCAA this past season. His achievements will be recognized in a special pre-game ceremony.
Hubbard will also sign autographs for fans during the first intermission on the Rogers Place Main Concourse behind Section 101.
The Sherwood Park native had a historic year at Oklahoma State this season, leading the NCAA in nearly every statistical rushing category. His 1,936 rushing yards were the second-most in a single season at Oklahoma State since NFL Hall of Famer Barry Sanders' NCAA-record season total of 2,850 in 1988.
Hubbard was recently named the 2019 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and earned consensus All-American status this past week.
Hubbard will lead the Cowboys into the Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl against Texas A&M on December 27 in Houston.
