Hot Links: Tuesday, August 13

T25 U25: Olivier Rodrigue checks in at 25, #24 drops later this afternoon, and other #Oilers tidbits on this lovely Tuesday morning. Where you are, I assume. It’s not nice here.

Good morning!

Another slow day in paradise, as August is in full effect.

Luckily for you, the reader, we just kicked off our annual Top 25 Under 25 series — starting yesterday with G Olivier Rodrigue — to help keep the boredom at bay. Come back just after lunch today to see who clocks in at #24!

The big club hasn’t had much to offer in terms of news in the past few days. There was a bit of buzz on the internet about the Flames being forced to look at ‘external options’ after one of their promising young D went down with a torn ACL. It kind of feels fitting to send a Cowboy back to the Saddledome (not my joke but PROVE IT), doesn’t it?

Otherwise, the news is brief so I’ll keep it as such. We’ll see you tomorrow.

Making bets. This season, the Oilers are likely to place a few of their own. (Lowetide)

For Money

Corey Pronman’s annual prospect ranking series kicked off this week. The Oilers haven’t shown up yet, but the Flames have. LOL. (The Athletic)
