Oilers to update the blue on their jerseys next season

sportslogos.net

We already knew that the Oilers would be wearing orange full time at home next season instead of the blue that they've worn in recent season, but, according to sportslogos.net, that won't be the only change. The blue on the shoulders will change from a royal blue to navy blue. It's a minor tweak, but one that I'm sure will sell a whole lot of new jerseys. One of which will end up in my closet.

Happy anniversary, Wayne

37 years ago today Wayne Gretzky scored his first NHL goal. Before his time in Edmonton came to an end he would score another 663, on his way to a career total (including playoffs) of 1,016. Those are okay numbers, I guess.

Oilers Heritage Classic Jerseys Coming This Friday

For the Oilers farewell season at Rexall Place the team treated us to a lovely, WHA era, orange jersey. I don't know about you, but with the Oilers and Jets (two WHA teams) facing off in this year's Heritage Classic, I'm hoping that the team goes back to the WHA well one more time, maybe giving us something with the alternate logo that the team wore from 1974-79. The Kamloops Blazers basically had this logo a couple years ago, it should be doable.
