by Ryan Frankson /

And we're back for another week of Oil Country social media! In this week's roundup, find out how you can win tickets to the sold-out Oilers Skills Competition, enjoy another adorable instalment of #OilersPets and feast your eyes on our GIFs of the week, as well as our fan spotlight.


The 2017 Oilers Skills Competition presented by Rogers is coming up on Sunday, Jan. 15, and with the event selling out the same day tickets went on sale, we know there are plenty of fans looking for a way in! Well, you're in luck, as we've got a few pairs up for grabs and all you have to do is make some predictions. Tell us who you think will win the hardest shot, fastest skater and accuracy shooting events and you're entered! Tweet us your picks with #OilersSkills or comment on the corresponding Facebook and Instagram posts. 


One of our favourite posts to do every month is #OilersPets presented by Coventry Homes! Fans send us photos of their pets in Oilers gear, we post them on Twitter and Facebook, and the more fellow fans like, share, comment, retweet, etc., the more money gets donated to the Edmonton Humane Society at the end of the season! Bean stole the show this month, but your pet could be featured next! Tweet us your photo with the hashtag or comment on the corresponding Facebook post.

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: For every RT & LIKE #Oilers fan Kailee's adorable dog Bean gets, @CoventryHomes will donate $1 to @EdmontonHumane! #OilersPets


The Big Rig cruised right through Boston on Thursday night as Patrick Maroon scored his first NHL hat-trick in a 4-3 Oilers win over the Bruins! Of course, we chronicled Maroon's milestone night via GIFs.
