OIL COUNTRY SPOTLIGHT
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.
