2014-15 Oilers Opening Day Roster

The final cutdown included some curious decisions, but the roster looks as set as it will ever be.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2014-15 Edmonton Oilers, based on pre-season play and the best educated guesses of the Copper & Blue staff:

4 Taylor Hall 93 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 14 Jordan Eberle
67 Benoit Pouliot 55 Leon Draisaitl 10 Nail Yakupov
57 David Perron 26 Mark Arcobello 16 Teddy Purcell
6 Jesse Joensuu 27 Boyd Gordon 23 Matt Hendricks
21 Andrew Ference 5 Mark Fayne
84 Oscar Klefbom 2 Jeff Petry
74 Darnell Nurse 19 Justin Schultz
30 Ben Scrivens
35 Viktor Fasth
Press Box
41 Will Acton
48 Ryan Hamilton
59 Brad Hunt
20 Luke Gazdic
86 Nikita Nikitin

There are some serious depth issues on the left defense, and center is the hot, gooey mess we all knew it would be, but this is the lineup the Oilers will take to Rexall Place opening night against the Flames, adjudged by bettors and EA Sports to be the worst team in the league.

Hold on to your butts.
