Top Oilers News

  • Oilers' Brett Kulak: Generates assist Thursday

    Kulak notched an assist, three shots on goal, four blocked shots, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.

    A heavily rotated Oilers team stood no chance against the full force of the Avalanche's lineup. Kulak saw a season-high 20:49 of ice time in the contest, but he'll likely be back in his familiar third-pairing role for the start of the playoffs. The Oilers begin their first-round series against the Kings on Monday. Kulak concludes the regular season with 16 points, 94 shots on net, 88 blocked shots and 77 hits over 82 appearances.

  • Oilers' Adam Erne: Reassigned to minors

    Erne was demoted to AHL Bakersfield on Friday.

    Erne went pointless in his last 11 outings with the Oilers, which no doubt factored into the decision to return him the the Condors for their playoff run. On the year, the 28-year-old forward played in just 24 NHL games, garnering a mere two points.

  • Oilers' Philip Broberg: Headed back to minors

    Broberg was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Friday.

    Broberg played in 12 games for the Oilers this season, generating two assists, four hits and six shots while averaging 11:37 of ice time. With the Oilers' blue line healthy, the 22-year-old Broberg will be better suited to help the Condors make a run in the Calder Cup playoffs. Having said that, if Edmonton needs a defenseman during its playoff run, Broberg figures to be atop the list of potential call-ups.

  • Oilers' Dylan Holloway: Power-play goal in finale

    Holloway scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.

    With Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl both scratched, Holloway saw his first extended look on Edmonton's power-play unit this season. The 22-year-old forward made the opportunity count, deflecting a Philip Broberg shot for the Oilers' lone tally in the loss. Holloway was effective down the stretch, posting three goals and five points in his final six games after recording just four points (three goals, one assist) in his first 32 contests this season.

  • Oilers' Calvin Pickard: Enters in relief

    Pickard stopped 13 of 14 shots in relief of Stuart Skinner on Thursday in a 5-1 loss to the Avalanche.

    Pickard started the second period in net after Skinner surrendered four goals in the opening frame. Colorado would ease off the throttle, scoring just once on Pickard, though Edmonton couldn't overcome the early deficit, leaving Skinner with the loss. The 32-year-old Pickard was solid in a backup role during the regular season, going 12-7-1 with a .909 save percentage and 2.45 GAA.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Struggles in finale

    Skinner allowed four goals on 13 shots before he was replaced by Calvin Pickard in the second period of Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Avalanche. Skinner was credited with the defeat.

    It certainly wasn't what Skinner had in mind for his final tune-up before the postseason -- the Avs scored four times in the first 10:17 of the opening period before Skinner was replaced by Pickard to start the second. The 25-year-old Skinner had won three of his previous four outings prior to Thursday, posting a .921 save percentage in that span. He'll wrap up the regular season at 36-16-5 with a .905 save percentage and 2.62 GAA. Skinner figures to be back between the pipes when the Oilers open the playoffs Monday at home versus the Kings.

  • Oilers' Brad Malone: Calling it career after season

    Malone will hang up his skates following the conclusion of AHL Bakersfield's 2023-24 campaign.

    Despite being on a two-way deal, Malone has spent the entire campaign down in the minors, where he serves as the captain of the Condors. His veteran presence is likely what convinced the Oilers to keep him without the organization considering he has played in just 18 NHL games over the last five seasons. Selected by the Avalanche in the fourth round of the 2007 NHL Draft, Malone went on to play 217 NHL contests, tallying 14 goals and 18 assists.
