WHAT A WEEK! The Oilers are now tied for first place in the Pacific Division thanks to three momentous victories over the Calgary Flames, Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks! With the #NHLAllStar break now upon us, #CaptainConnor and our mascot Hunter are in Los Angeles for the festivities, while the rest of the team is enjoying a brief, well-deserved break. Time to wrap it all up in our weekly social media recap!
With 59 points in 51 games, no player brings more offence to the all-star festivities than our very own Connor McDavid, who's serving as captain of the Pacific Division! McDavid attended the #NHL100 event last night and will compete in tonight's Skills Competition, as well as tomorrow's 3-on-3 tournament. His teammates are staying busy with some leisure activities, as Drake Caggiula, Matt Benning, Leon Draisaitl and Patrick Maroon visited Torrey Pines to watch this weekend's PGA tournament, while Eric Gryba hit the road to his home in Saskatchewan with his faithful pooch Quigley riding shotgun.
Captain Connor isn't the only Oilers representative in Los Angeles! Our beloved mascot Hunter is also making his first appearance, meeting as many fans as he possibly can and competing with his colleagues in the Mascot Showdown. Make sure you're following his Instagram account to keep tabs on all of his shenanigans.
