Let's go camping! Oilers training camp is officially underway, with exhibition games starting in just two days! Meanwhile, Draisaitl and Sekera are still alive at the World Cup of Hockey. And a new season means new contests with our awesome corporate partners. All that and more in this week's Oil Country social media round-up!
While the rookies arrived last week and posted a perfect 4-0 record during their schedule, the veterans reported to #OilersCamp on Thursday ready to get the new season going! As always, he had some fun on Snapchat (edmontonoilers) as the fellas went through the various stations for mug shots, promo photos and fitness testing. #NHLPreseason action starts Monday with a split-squad game vs. Calgary!
What a wild ride it's been at #WCH2016 and we've still got plenty more excitement to come! Unfortunately, #TeamNA featuring Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (as well as Todd McLellan and Jay Woodcroft on the bench) didn't qualify for the semi-final round, but they provided us with plenty more highlights along the way! Our Oilers contingent is still alive, though, as Leon Draisaitl, Andrej Sekera and #TeamEUR have emerged as one of the tournament favourites, set to square off against #TeamSWE on Sunday for a berth in the final.
So who wants to win a trip for two to next month's #HeritageClassic in Winnipeg?! We've teamed up with our friends Molson and Liquor Depot to give you a chance to experience the outdoor game in all its glory. To enter, visit an Edmonton and area Liquor Depot location, find the contest display, snap a quick selfie and send it our way via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook! Pretty simple, right?
OIL COUNTRY SPOTLIGHT
There was absolutely no doubt when we picked this week's fan spotlight! We must continue to give all the love to Oilers fan Kyle Hammersley for capturing his epic photo of the Stanley Cup-shaped cloud hovering gracefully over Rogers Place and downtown Edmonton.
