Yamamoto scores twice as Oilers defeat no-name Canucks

It wasn’t a Who’s Who of hockey talent Friday night at Rogers Place, but rather a Who’s That? as an Edmonton Oilers skeleton crew posted a 5-3 pre-season win over the Utica Comets. The Comets were cleverly disguised as the Vancouver Canucks, but with all of Vancouver’s top players over in China for games with the Los Angeles Kings, it was a lineup made up almost entirely of no-name players who’ll be starting the season in the AHL. Edmonton didn’t exactly go with its

Edmonton Oilers: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Returning to Form

Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins may have experienced some bumps in the road throughout his career, but come this training camp, he is looking better. Not only does the 24-year-old centre have a goal and four points in just two games so far, but he is showing tremendous chemistry with Jussi Jokinen and company.

Oilers Preseason Gameday – Vs. Vancouver

Just a day after cutting 13 players from their training camp roster, the Oilers will go back to work tonight in the first of two games this weekend. In the first half of a preseason back-to-back, the Oilers will host the ‘left-behinds’ of the Vancouver Canucks. With most of their veterans in China, it’s going to be a younger and more AHL Canuck lineup in this one. The Oilers had a similar lineup on Wednesday in Winnipeg, but still found a way to score a 4-1 victory on the road.

PS G4 2017-18: CANUCKS AT OILERS

The Edmonton Oilers play their fourth pre-season game tonight, against the Vancouver Canucks. The team from the left coast is bringing a team that barely qualifies as an NHL group, while the home team is giving three lines and two pairings worth of hopefuls a chance to shine. For fans, it’s an opportunity to see who will step up. LIKELY LINEUP

GDB -5.0: Oilers vs. Comucks

We are in the dog days of the preseason. Tonight’s matchup will have very little resemblance to an NHL game. The Vancouver Canucks veterans are in China playing the Los Angeles Kings, so tonight’s roster for the Canucks/Utica Comets doesn’t even match the criteria for an NHL preseason game. Usually, a team has to dress...

Edmonton Oilers will go with Yamamoto and players "on the edge" against Vancouver Caucks

Preseason Game Day 3: Oilers vs Canucks The Edmonton Oilers are going with players “on the edge” tonight vs the Vancouver Canucks. That’s how Oilers coach Todd McLellan described it to the media today. It sounds a bit more interesting than it is. Essentially, the Oilers are going with a line-up packed with players who will be in the AHL this year.  As sports commentator Jason Gregor tweeted out, the lines are likely to be:  Lucic-Drai-Caggiula

Feng: Thank you letters to start the Oilers’ season

As Canadian goddess Celine Dion once crooned “another year has gone by.” But one year can seem awfully trite at times — fleeting and even rather arbitrary. Some years flow by, blending into one another with no discernible difference. (Edmonton fans know all about that.) But that changed for the Oilers last season. In 10 months, the mindset and expectations of an entire fan base underwent a seismic shift, from fantasizing about squeaking into the playoffs to debating how d
