The 2015-16 Oilers season may be in the books, but Oil Country is always buzzing in the social media sphere, so we’re going to keep you in the loop throughout the off-season! This week, we’ve reached the fan vote stage of our NHL Draft contest with Sport Chek, Connor McDavid met up with one of his MLB pals and we feature more fan photos. Enjoy!


With his rookie season complete, Oilers 2015 first-overall pick Connor McDavid headed home to the Greater Toronto Area this week and took in the @BlueJays vs. @Yankees game on Thursday night! After the game, Connor met up with fellow @BioSteelSports athlete and Toronto’s winning pitcher that night, Marcus Stroman. Both players posted about the encounter on their social media channels.

Good seeing this guy last night #HDMH #teambiosteel Go Jays Go

This meet-up was just the latest in a saga of mutual love between the Oilers and the Jays over the last year


Oil Country, you’ve shown us how you’re willing to sweat to win a trip to the 2016 #NHLDraft in Buffalo, and now it’s time to vote! Our three @SportChek #SweatBetter finalists have been selected, and the fan whose video receives the most votes will win a trip for two to the festivities in Buffalo. Cast your vote at!


This week’s fan spotlight photos prove once again Oil Country has no age or geographical age limits! Miranda and Warren Lychak posted an absolutely adorable photo of their son on our Facebook page, and we find it tough to argue that caption! Meanwhile, thousands of miles away, Oilers fan Teofilo Gaje Sr. lives in the Philippines and, as you can tell by the wear and tear, rarely takes off his Oilers shirt! Thank you to his son-in-law Kristian Tait for sending us that gem. Want to see your photo or video in our spotlight next week? Remember to include @edmontonoilers in your tweets and Instagram posts, or upload them on our Facebook page!
