Oil Country social media is a busy place as we close in on the end of the season! We’ve got a pair of contests going right now that could land you some of the final tickets to the Farewell Rexall game on Wednesday, April 6, and another contest that could send you to this year’s NHL Draft. Also, in this week’s Oil Country spotlight, a couple of major celebs added an Oilers jersey to their wardrobe. Enjoy!


Keep it locked on our social media channels if you want to be the first to know which Oilers alumni will be participating in the #FarewellRexallPlace festivities on April 6! Each day leading up to the game, we’ll be releasing five more names.

And speaking of Farewell Rexall, our friends at Canadian Tire are hooking one lucky fan up with one of the last pairs of tickets for the game vs. Vancouver! To be eligible to win, you must post a 15-second photo on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and tag both @edmontonoilers and @CanadianTire, while also including the #FarewellRexallPlace hashtag. The one and only Wayne Gretzky got things going on Friday!


Our second annual #BrickBestSeats contest is almost over! If you want a chance to win $5,000 to spend at The Brick plus gold seats for the final game at Rexall Place on April 6, visit an Edmonton-area store, find the contest sign, snap your photo and submit it to us via Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

Speaking of contests with awesome prizes, our pals at Sport Chek want send an Oilers fan plus a guest to the 2016 NHL Draft in Buffalo! You’re going to have to work for it, though… To enter, submit a 15-second video with the hashtag #SweatBetter showing us how you’re getting in shape for the Draft. Some street hockey? Crushing the treadmill? Let’s see it! Remember to tag us and @SportChek in your video.


There were plenty of #HockeyHugs to go around on Thursday as the Oilers rattled off six goals in the final two frames of their game against the San Jose Sharks, posting a dominant 6-3 victory.


With the Oilers in Hollywood today for their game against the Kings, it’s only fitting this week’s spotlight shines on a pair of celeb fans. Wayne Gretzky met up with Justin Bieber on Friday night in Vegas, and the pop superstar was the lucky recipient of an Oilers jersey from The Great One’s fantasy camp. Meanwhile at Staples Center, members of the Oilers support staff presented Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant with a McDavid jersey following Friday’s game against Denver.
