Oilers Name Four Alternate Captains For 2015-16 Season

Four alternate captains will wear 'A's in 2015-16.  No one will wear the 'C'.  At least, not yet.

I'm a little surprised that Taylor Hall didn't get the 'C', but it's been a little tough to put your finger on the "new" Oilers.  The only real change here is that Ference drops from a 'C' to an 'A', as Hall, Eberle and RNH keep their alternate captaincy.

Matt Hendricks will wear an 'A' while Jordan Eberle recovers from a shoulder injury sustained in a preseason contest against the Arizona Coyotes just over a week ago.

The Oilers are in St. Louis tomorrow to face off against the Blues in game one of the most anticipated regular season since 2006-07.  Stick with us, kid.  You won't want to miss any action.
