Hello, Oilers fans, and welcome to your weekly dose of social media awesomeness! Wow, do we ever have some exciting contests going on with our partners right now, which means you could win some sweet prizes! We'll tell you all about how to win with Tim Hortons, Ford and The Keg, in addition to our weekly favourite GIFs and Oil Country fan spotlight.
We've almost reached the conclusion of our #PerfectPairings contest with Tim Hortons! On the day before every home game in November, visit an Edmonton-area Tim's location, purchase one of their $5.99 combos 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 day.
Speaking of satisfying your hunger, we've got a brand new contest with The Keg launching today! If you're coming to an Oilers home game at Rogers Place, tell us what you're celebrating (tag @edmontonoilers and @TheKeg plus #CelebrateTonight) and we may feature you during a TV timeout. It could be a big milestone like a birthday or anniversary, or something smaller like passing an exam. We won't discriminate on your celebration and neither does #TheKeg!
FORD STREET TEAM
We've got a beautiful, brand new 2017 Ford Explorer decked out in Oilers colours ready to hit the streets of #yeg and dole out some prizes! The Ford Canada Street Team set up camp at Muttart Conservatory on Saturday, with Oilers tickets and merchandise up for grabs. Didn't get a chance to pay them a visit? Don't worry, they have many more locations to visit over the coming weeks! Keep tabs on our social media channels for full details.
GIFS OF THE WEEK
Our favourite GIFs from the past week of Oilers action include a pair of bone-rattling hits doled out by our defencemen, as well as Connor McDavid taking flight against the Coyotes. First up, Kris Russell obliterated Tyler Motte on Monday against the Blackhawks, then Matt Benning flattened Nathan MacKinnon on Wednesday in Colorado. And finally, we all had a laugh as the captain soared through the air to avoid a hit in Arizona, only to end up in the opposing team's bench.
OIL COUNTRY SPOTLIGHT
It's beginning to look a lot like the holiday season around #OilCountry! Shout-outs to these fans who have some of the best looking trees and decorations on the block.
