We celebrate #StPatricksDay, look ahead to Fan Appreciation Night, pick the GIFS of the Week and more in our weekly social media blog

If you like goals (and how could you not?), this was one of the most entertaining weeks of the Oilers season! Albeit a day early, we celebrated St. Patrick's Day in style with a 7-4 win over the Boston Bruins. Our favourite GIFs of the week come from that win, as well as the 7-1 victory two nights prior over the Dallas Stars. Fan Appreciation Night is coming up as well, and speaking of fans, we shine the spotlight on Oil Country, as always.


We added a little green to our usual blue and orange on Thursday, celebrating #StPatricksDay a little early as we hosted an appropriate opponent, the Boston Bruins. We had a special pre-game projection show and opening video to commemorate the Irish occasion, Rogers Place concessions served up plenty of green bear, and our mascot Hunter got in on the festivities as well!

Our annual Fan Appreciation Night is coming up on Tuesday, March 28 as we host the Los Angeles Kings!

We've got you covered with giveaways on our social media channels as well. Stay tuned for all the details!


Just a FEW highlights to choose from for this week's favourite GIFs! With 14 goals in back-to-back wins over the Dallas Stars and Boston Bruins, we're featuring the best of the best with Oilers goals from David Desharnais, Connor McDavid, Anton Slepyshev, Leon Draisaitl and Patrick Maroon.
