Found September 25, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
The Edmonton Oilers training camp ended abruptly last night for 4 hopefuls and there may be one more coming soon. Darnell Nurse, Anton Lander, Tyler Pitlick, and Taylor Fedun were all cut immediately after last night’s game. I’m sure these men still lost sleep last night, but it wasn’t because they didn’t know what was going to happen next. There are some rumblings that the next person to...

What Sam Gagner’s face looks like after a high stick

Sam Gagner's face has seen better days. The Edmonton Oilers forward suffered a broken jaw on a high-stick from Canucks forward Zack Kassian during the second period of Saturday night's game. Whereas Kassian scored an eight-game suspension for the errant stick, Gagner was on the receiving end of some misplaced teeth and a scary amount of swelling around his mouth. Gagner...

Oilers send top pick Darnell Nurse back to junior

Good night Nurse. Edmonton Oilers defenceman Darnell Nurse who surprisingly saw action in four exhibition games when many thought he’d only get one or two as the team’s 2013 first-round draft pick was sent back to his junior team in Sault Ste. Marie after the Oilers’ 5-3 pre-season win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night. Nurse played almost 20 minutes and had an assist...

A Stick To The Face Turned Edmonton Oiler Sam Gagner Into A Monster

If you don’t know how to work a YouTube video, I’ll recap it for you: Vancouver Canucks winger Zack Kassian tried to hit Edmonton Oilers center Sam Gagner but missed him by like two feet. He still wanted to hit him, though, so he spun around with his stick in the air and basically backfisted Gagner in the jaw with it. Gagner was taken away with a broken jaw, and Kassian, at...

With Nugent-Hopkins in recovery and Gagner out, OIlers have a larger hole to fill in the middle of the lineup

Centre of gravity? Absolutely. Those gaping month-long holes down the middle of Edmonton’s line-up are as grave as it gets for a team that was already Spandex thin at centre. With Sam Gagner and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins lost until November the Oilers are now left with the urgent task of having to replace their top two centres for as many as 14 games. “We’re hopeful we have the...

Matt Henderson: A Bit About Arcobello

Mark Arcobello is about to be afforded the opportunity of a lifetime. The 5’9” 165lb center from Yale University and the Oklahoma City Barons should be starting the NHL season between David Perron and Jordan Eberle playing on the Oilers’ 2nd line. At 25 years old, with only 1 previous NHL game, he will be counted on to provide enough offense and play well enough in...

Ryan Garner: Underrated and Underappreciated, Dubnyk Key to Oilers Success

A familiar feeling washed over fans of the Edmonton Oilers last night when the Winnipeg Jets opened the scoring: Contempt for their goaltender. Late in the first period of a scoreless game, Chris Thorburn’s innocent shot from the right faceoff circle would have gone wide if it hadn’t been touched. Instead, Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk attempted to swat the shot away with...

After taking a vicious high-stick from the Vancouver Canucks Zack Kassian, an offense that got Kassian suspended eight games, Edmonton Oilers forward Sam Gagner tweeted a picture of his gruesomely broken jaw.  This is tough to look at and Gagner has already had surgery to repair his jaw to get him back into the lineup as soon as possible. Thank you all for the support. Excited to...

Sam Gagner not so handsome after getting jaw broken by Zack Kassian

During Sunday’s preseason NHL tilt between the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks, Oilers forward Sam Gagner suffered a broken jaw thanks to the handy stick work of Canucks winger Zack Kassian.

From Golfing Early Last Season To Playoffs This Season

from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Five non-playoff teams from last season that will jump into a playoff spot this season: Edmonton Oilers: OK, so this sounds like a broken record but finally, truly, really, the young Oilers will break through and get in after stockpiling all that talent over the past several years. Dallas Eakins was a brilliant hire as head coach. Columbus...
