#SocOILmedia: October 22, 2016

by Ryan Frankson & Cait MacPhail /

It's been a busy, entertaining week in Oilers world! From the boys banking two big wins, to goalie Cam Talbot introducing two tiny Talbots to his clan, to a bustling weekend in Winnipeg for the Heritage Classic, there was certainly no shortage of love in the #OilCountry social sphere. Let's dive in!


Oilers goalie Cam Talbot and wife Kelly saw a brand new chapter in their life begin on Wednesday morning as they introduced twin babies Sloane Colleen and Landon Thomas into the world. From two points on the ice on Tuesday, two babies on Wednesday and back for two more points on Thursday, Cam Talbot will be hard-pressed to top this week.

Tweet from @ctalbot33: @kellytrain and I would like to introduce Landon Thomas and Sloane Colleen Talbot to the world! We couldn't be more in love with these two!!

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: TWINNING! ����

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: "I wouldn't change it for the world. I was ready to go tonight, riding an adrenaline high." @ctalbot33 on start after birth of his twins

Tweet from @EdmontonOilers: "He's unbelievable. I don't even know how he's doing it with everything going on in his life." @cmcdavid97 on @ctalbot33's performance



 Both the current Oilers and alumni squad jetted east this weekend to participate in the #HeritageClassic festivities in Winnipeg. Between an alumni skate followed by a family skate for the current team, there were plenty of great shots from MTS Centre and frosty Investors Group Field before any games were even played!
