#SocOILmedia: November 12, 2016

by Ryan Frankson @ryanfrankson /

It's time once again for our weekly roundup of all things social media in Oil Country! This week, we pay tribute to our veterans, tell you about new contest that involves some delicious food and your chance to win tickets, check out our favourite GIFs from the past week and, as always, shine the spotlight on some of our awesome fans. Enjoy!


The 11th of November is always a solemn day in both Canada and the United States as we pay our respects to the men and women who have served to protect our countries. As such, #RemembranceDay and #VeteransDay were observed yesterday with a special pre-game tribute at Rogers Place and commemorative warmup jerseys, while Oilers players and prospects posted their messages via Twitter.

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: Thank you so much to the @CanadianForces veterans who joined us for tonight's #RemembranceDay ceremonial puck-drop.

Those @CanadianForces #Oilers warmup jerseys! #DALvsEDM #RemembranceDay

As if your favourite Tim Hortons sandwich teamed up with a soup or salad for just $5.99 wasn't awesome enough, we're giving Oilers fans a chance to win tickets for dessert! Interested? We thought so. On the day before every home game this month, visit an Edmonton-area location, purchase a #PerfectPairings deal and post a photo of your order on Twitter or Instagram (include @TimHortons and @edmontonoilers plus the hashtag) for your chance to win a pair of tickets to the game the following night.



Our favourite GIFs from this past week's Oilers action come from the Big Rig himself, Patrick Maroon , who's been tearing up the scoresheet with goals in four of his last five games! Maroon now leads the team in goals with six on the season, and also got his 100th NHL point on his tally vs. Pittsburgh.

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: Behold, @patmaroon's 100th @NHL point. #EDMvsPIT

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: Top-line bling. �� #EDMvsPIT

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: Big Riggin' the #Oilers to their 1st goal. #DALvsEDM

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: These guys' favourite colour is Maroon. #DALvsEDM


This week's fan spotlight shines on father-of-the-year candidate Ryan Yaremchuk, who tweeted us a pair of adorable photos of his daughters' first experience at #RogersPlace!
