The Edmonton Oil Kings make the over 5-hour road trip to Saskatoon this weekend for two games against the Blades, Friday and Saturday. Admittedly a lot of the Oil Kings roster is currently at NHL training camps. However, that gives a great opportunity for players to prove they can grab […]
It’s only been five months, but we finally have an actual opponent on the other side of the ice. After a long summer due to a shortened COVD season in 2020-2021, the Oil Kings start their 2021-2022 preseason campaign against the Red Deer Rebels. These two teams could not have […]
We got a chance to sit down with Carter Souch, Jaxsen Wiebe and Edmonton Oil Kings GM Kirt Hill after the completion of Oil Kings training camp to hear their thoughts about camp and the upcoming 2021-2022 WHL season.
It’s been almost two years, but we finally are able to be back in the rink. The Oil Kings held their annual Red vs White game signifying the end of training camp. It’s the last tune up before the preseason schedule gets underway (September 11th vs Red Deer at the […]

It’s Draft Week. This Friday the 23rd the next class of NHL rookies will get the phone call they have been dreaming of for the majority of their lives. Players will climb, players will fall as the Draft is truly one of the more unpredictable events in the sport. […]
Exceptional 15 year old’s don’t dominate Major Junior. It just doesn’t happen, most aren’t even allowed to play. Under normal circumstances a 15-year old is only allowed to play 5 games in the WHL, unless their midget season is already over. Connor Bedard is a different story. He’s “exceptional”. Connor […]

54 games. That’s how long it has been since the Swede’s have lost a preliminary round game at the World Junior Championships. It doesn’t matter who has been in their group, somehow, someway they have been perfect. However, just because they have had preliminary round success does not mean they […]

Russia (2-0-0-2) @ Switzerland (3-0-0-1) Throw the group stage out the window, the real World Junior Championship tournament starts today with the quarterfinals.
