It was another busy, exciting week across #OilCountry with our annual Skills Competition on Sunday and the second half of our six-game homestand! We also launched a big-time contest that will end with a long-distance fan winning a trip to Edmonton to watch their favourite team in action. Enjoy this week's social media roundup!
What an awesome time we had last Sunday at the Oilers Skills Competition presented by Rogers! The players showcased their talents in front of a packed house at Rogers Place and also snapped some selfies in between events. Drake Caggiula provided one of the best moments, dressing up as Drake the Canadian rap superstar for the breakaway challenge, while Patrick Maroon's son Anthony also got in on the festivities.
Do you have an Oilers-obsessed cousin in Newfoundland? Maybe a buddy studying abroad in Europe? Air Canada wants to fly one lucky fan to Edmonton to watch their favourite team in action! Tell us why your friend or family member deserves this VIP experience by commenting on our Facebook and Instagram posts, or by tweeting us with #FanFlight.
GIFS OF THE WEEK
Milan Lucic was a one-man wrecking crew for the Oilers against the Nashville Predators on Friday night, dropping the gloves for a spirited scrap, delivering a thundering bodycheck behind the net and then scoring the equalizing goal in the third period that allowed the team to get an important point. Our top GIFs this week are dedicated to the big winger's big night!
