GAME STORY: Oilers 2, Red Wings 1

The Oilers improve to 7-1-0 record with a 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings in Ken Holland's first contest against his former club of 36 seasons

by Jamie Umbach / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - It was always going to be a strange night for Ken Holland.

The new Oilers General Manager and President of Hockey Operations has only been with the Oilers since May 6, but before that the 63-year-old spent 36 years with the Detroit Red Wings organization.

For 22 of those seasons, he donned the mantle of Red Wings' GM.

"It's going to be strange seeing a Red Wing jersey skating around and rooting against it, but that's the way it goes," the executive said pre-game surrounded by local and visiting media outside the Oilers locker room.

"It's going to be a strange night. For me, I want to get the two points. It's a huge two points and then we turn the page on to Winnipeg."

Consider it done.
