NHL preseason starts next week, the time all great hockey fans have been waiting for since last year. Time to find out how the teams did on the off season and in the draft. Let's look at the Edmonton Oilers.
The Edmonton Oilers play in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference. With a 19-22-7 record overall for last season, the Edmonton Oilers are looking to improve their standings this year. In doing so there was some revamping of the team, players moving this way and that, and so who is likely to be playing on Sept 14th when they play their first preseason game against Calgary is anyone's guess, but there are a few things we do know.
The Edmonton Oilers sgined LW Linus Omark to another one year contract extension, last week, which will bring some stability to that position. Also in the left wing department, earlier in the month of August, they signed Jujhar Kharia to a three year contract. The big addition to the LW position was the trade that allowed them to acquire David Perron. This many have been the best move of the off season that the Oilers made.
At the Center position, they were able to re-sign Sam Gagner for a three year contract, keeping that position stable. The other big boost that the Edmonton Oilers were able to get was by signing Andrew Ference, Defensemen; to a four year contract. He is a veteran and should bring some good knowledge and leadership to a defensive line that has been weak, to say the least in the past year.
With the addition of a few key players, and some new faces in the front offices with some new ideas, the Edmonton Oilers are hoping to have a bright new season, with a different outcome than last season. A brighter outcome, and we wish them the best, let's see if they can live up to the promise.
