Edmonton Oilers Preparing For A Successful Season
Recently, the Edmonton Oilers acquired skilled veteran Jussi Jokinen to complement their roster of young talent. Last season, Jokinen was alternate captain with the Florida Panthers and scored a solid 28 points in 69 games.
The Edmonton Oilers can also look forward to another season of pleasant surprises from fan favourite Patrick Maroon, who is coming off the best season of his career. Plus, the Edmonton Oilers just signed Maroon’s line mate, centreman Leon Draisaitl, to a major contract. Draisaitl is also coming off the best season of his career, with an impressive 29 goals and 77 points. More than just a goal scorer, Draisaitl was a key contributor to the team’s success during the regular season and post-season. Fans can expect Draisaitl to continue to be a play-maker and catalyst for the Edmonton Oilers’ top line!
In other good news for the team, the Edmonton Oilers just signed their best player, Connor McDavid, to an 8-year, $100 million contract extension that locks the captain into another nine seasons with the team!
Connor McDavid contract extension
The McDavid deal is a major investment on the part of the franchise, but a smart one. McDavid has played only one and a half seasons in the NHL, but in that time he has proven himself to be worthy of both the salary and the commitment shown him by the Edmonton Oilers. McDavid scored 100 points for the team last season. This helped garner him the Hart Memorial Trophy, the Ted Lindsay Award, and the Art Ross Trophy.
Connor McDavid was picked first over all in the 2015 draft by the Edmonton Oilers. In his draft year, McDavid played for the OHL Erie Otters where he scored an amazing 44 goals and 120 points. McDavid carried his momentum into his first season in the NHL. Although his season was shortened by injury, McDavid scored 16 goals and 48 points in just 45 games. At just 20 years old, McDavid is the youngest captain in NHL history. He was named to the role after just one season with the team.
McDavid has already showed himself to be capable of turning the tide for the Edmonton Oilers. Some fans believe he might be the key to the Oilers’ success this season, after several years in the bottom teams of the Western Conference standings. His leadership both on the ice and in the locker room helped take the team into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. McDavid and his team were one game away from making the Stanley Cup Western Conference Finals. If McDavid’s first year as captain is any indication, the future of the Edmonton Oilers looks very bright.
