It’s that time of the week again, Oilers fans! Time to check in on everything going on in the social media realm across Oil Country. In this week’s blog, we take a close-up look at #RogersPlace construction progress, check in from the #NHLCombine in Buffalo, see what a few Oilers players have been up to, and, as always, shine the spotlight on you, the fans!
Local media, as well as yours truly and several other Oilers Entertainment Group staff members, got an update on Rogers Place progress last Sunday, with visits to the community rink, main bowl and concourse.
#NHLDraft season is officially upon us, kicking into high gear with the #NHLCombine this week! All of this year’s top prospects are in Buffalo to participate in fitness testing, as well as interviews with the teams, and Oilers TV is on location to provide comprehensive coverage. Make sure you keep tabs on our Sport Chek Draft website, edmontonoilers.com/draft, for everything you need to know heading into June 24-25.
It’s time to do another checkup on what some Oilers players are doing during the off-season! Avid outdoorsman Matt Hendricks managed to snag himself a big bird during Minnesota turkey hunting season, Mark Letestu was one of the guests of honour at the AJHL’s Bonnyville Pontiacs alumni golf tournament, and Griffin Reinhart enjoyed some brotherly love on the links with Sam of the Buffalo Sabres.

Fan shout-outs this week go to Darion Byerley and Michael McHale, who made sure their sons were decked out in Connor McDavid gear on vacation in France and hanging out by the pool, respectively. Excellent parenting, you guys! 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!
