Oilers Recall Steve Pinizzotto


In the same vein of a Gazdic or a Steve Ott, Pinizzotto is a hockey player cut from the cloth of rough and tumble. He has speed and quality stick work, and this makes his offensive giftedness an asset to the Barons. Of the twelve NHL games he’s tallied in his career he earned 29 penalty minutes, and that was with the Vancouver Canucks in 2013. Since then he’s been property of the Florida Panthers until the trade deadline approached, and he became a baby Oiler.

That's friend of the Copper and Blue, Neal Livingston, on the Oilers most recent call up. You can read Neal's entire piece at Tend The Farm.

Hemsky On His Last Days In Edmonton


It could be the last two games in this locker room, so I better enjoy it.

After practice today Hemsky spoke to the media and, not surprisingly, the prospect of his being traded came up (video starts at 1:34). Hemsky said he's "ready for it." He might be but, as I wrote yesterday, I'm not.

Western Canada Is Bad At Hockey


Not including games against one another, western Canadian teams have 18 points (7 RegW, 1 OTW, 2 OTL) from 34 games this month.

Elliotte Friedman on the Fan 960


From Boomer in the Morning -- The Oilers have likely told the Predators that if the Preds are considering trading Weber, the Oilers want to take a shot [Weber does not have any no-trade, no-movement clause]. The Oilers would likely be willing to give up Eberle (which is not a knock on Eberle), but the Predators would probably be after Nugent-Hopkins and a first round pick.

Dubnyk has "bad habits"


"Devan Dubnyk came from Edmonton and.. let's just say he has some bad habits." - #Preds Head Coach Barry Trotz on @949Game2. #Oilers #NHL

Oilers Lowlight Video


This video is an amazing collection of Oilers' low lights set to a sappy love song. The video title "It's funny because we're awful" couldn't be more appropriate.



Marincin made the Slovak Olympic team! Hemsky and Smid are going for the Czechs. Still, great news for Marincin as this will help his development a lot which could be good for the Oil as well.

Darnell Nurse is a beast


Nurse currently sits 2nd amongst all skaters in OHL scoring with 24pts in 22 games. He's on pace for a 74pt season. MacT better trade him before his value drops ;)
