Morning, folks! Been awhile, hasn’t it?

Tonight marks the opening night of the Edmonton Oilers’ 2021-22 campaign. Nothing like an 8PM game midweek to really get your juices flowing. I’m hopeful it’s exciting enough I can stay awake. I’m nervous that my first full viewing of Duncan Keith and Cody Ceci will be too much to take. Time will tell.

How are you feeling?! Is tonight the beginning of a long and beautiful march to Lord Stanley’s mug, or will it be the first in a long line of many coming disappointments?

In either case, get yourselves prepped for tonight with our season previews, podcast, and everything else we’ve put together over the past week or so. Then, wheel it back around for our typical GAMEDAY coverage.



Hockey is just a few days away and the Copper & Blue crew couldn’t be more excited!

Preston and Corey do a final look at how the Edmonton Oilers look heading into the season and take a closer look at the defensive group.

Stick around for the second half of the podcast as they take a look at some intriguing waiver wire names as well as their final predictions on the opening night roster!
