It’s the last Oil Country social media blog of August and that means hockey is right around the corner! We’re just two weeks away from the Rogers Place Open House, three weeks away from Rookie Camp and a month away from Oilers preseason! This week’s roundup is for the dogs, and we’ve also got some McDavid throwbacks, our off-season tracker and weekly fan spotlight.


Why can’t it be #NationalDogDay every day?! The hockey social sphere was raining dogs and dogs on Friday as players gave shout-outs to their favourite canines! Pat Maroon, Zack Kassian, Cam Talbot and Nail Yakupov each posted photos of their furry friends.

What a week for #TBT as not one but TWO minor hockey photos featuring none other than Connor McDavid emerged from the archives! This also serves as another friendly reminder to follow Team North America on Twitter and Instagram to get all the latest content from the #WCH2016 young guns squad, featuring McDavid and RNH.

12-year-old Connor! #TBT

Getting back to business is the theme this week! Jesse Puljujärvi showed off one of the recovery tools he’s been using this summer, Nail Yakupov was working on his dangles, Leon Draisaitl was rocking some new “back to school” gear, Darnell Nurse took some cuts in the Blue Jays batting cage, Brandon Davidson had his vehicle all loaded up and ready to head back to Edmonton, and D prospect Caleb Jones posted a photo with older brother Seth as they get ready to depart to their respective NHL training camps.
