Morning, folks!

We’ll keep it brief today. First thing’s first, the latest on Colby Cave:

Lowetide dove into 2020 Draft Prospect Jack Quinn, who looks to be a great fit for the Edmonton Oilers this summer.

Oilers legend Wayne Gretzky sat down with The Athletic to talk COVID-19, his illustrious career, his family, and the Oilers’ current crop of stars.

Paul Coffey spoke to Jim Matheson about Evan Bouchard’s game.

Colby Cave’s former teammates and coaches in the Bruins organization speak to Cave’s excellence as a human man while he’s in the fight of his life after suffering a brain bleed earlier this week.

More NHL players checked in to talk about the postponed season and these unprecedented times we find ourselves in the midst of.

The Edmonton Oilers of 1985 were voted the NHL’s best ever team by Yahoo Sports.

The NHL’s central scouting service released their final rankings for the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Alex Lafreniere continues to pace the North American skaters, with Tim Stuetzle atop the International list.

The Oilers upset of the powerhouse Dallas Stars in 1997 (you know, that Todd Marchant goal) was among the best memories Oilers fans of a certain age can remember. Oilersnation sat down with former Star (and local boy) Richard Matvichuk to talk about it.
