Morning, everyone!

Emily Cave sat down with ESPN to talk about her husband Colby’s life and how she’ll remember and honor him moving forward.

Does William Lagesson’s future lie in Edmonton or elsewhere like, say, Seattle?

Zack Kassian was in some temperature of water yesterday after a picture surfaced of him sitting with some known member of some known organization. (Find out for yourselves, I’m no narc.) The bulk of the comments online seemed to pay very little attention to how the actual problem with the photograph was that he’s taking selfies with people he (presumably) doesn’t live with in the middle of a pandemic without a mask on, within two weeks of camps opening.

The Oilers bubble got a little bigger and a whole lot older when James Neal and Evan Bouchard arrived yesterday.

The 2021 Expansion Draft is looming and the Oilers might have some issues heading into it.

25 years ago, the Edmonton Oilers played host to the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. It was, unremarkable.

Looking back at the five worst teams to make the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Oilers depth at wing was eroded over the last few seasons, but the 2019-20 season might bear the first signs of its recovery.
