October Wallpaper - YakCity's Lid

Edmonton's game-changer at rest.

Nail Yakupov dominated our fan favorites poll and with good reason: the man possesses an incredible amount of talent and a verve that makes him impossible to dislike, unless you're the Los Angeles Kings. So when the Oilers opened up practice in Oklahoma City prior to playing the Stars in a pre-season game, our favorite photographer, Candace Riley, jumped at the opportunity to point her DSLR Yakupov's way.

And although she he captured a number of amazing photos (we'll feature them as the season moves along), the above photo of Yakupov's helmet at rest is one of my favorites. It's a perfect contrast to his Whirling Dervish act on the ice. It's also timely, as he was the spark behind the comeback against the Devils last night.
