Oilers defenceman Oskar Klefbom finding his legs in the NHL

Oscar Klefbom is starting to feel comfortable in his new surroundings. The Edmonton Oilers defenceman suited up in his eighth NHL game Tuesday with the San Jose Sharks in town.

Oilers callup Laurent Brossoit in no hurry to get in the crease

Laurent Brossoit won’t be stopping pucks in Edmonton on a full-time basis for a while yet, but just being back for a cup of coffee is enough to get his pulse racing. “Once I walked into the rink there were memories flashing through,” said the OKC Barons goalie, who’ll be relieving Ben Scrivens until the Oilers get Viktor Fasth back from his neck injury. “I just had such...

Marincin looks like a win in Oilers’ season of losing

When a young Grant Fuhr was fighting a Battle of the Bulge at one of his early Edmonton Oilers training camps, his boss, Glen Sather, sarcastically stuck a Jenny Craig diet book in the goalie’s dressing room stall. Or was it between Fuhr’s goalie pads? Whatever, it was a shot Fuhr handled just like an Al MacInnis slapshot. He cut back on the caloric intake. Rookie defenceman...

Eakins says Oilers need to add ‘some veteran leadership’

“We need to supplement this group with probably some veteran leadership, some guys that can make plays, and not so much a toughness aspect, but guys that are going to win battles in this conference.” Edmonton Oilers fans have heard this sort of thing before. And they heard it again Wednesday from head coach Dallas Eakins. Eakins may be right, but it’s not really what the...

Hockey shot-protection gear struggles to secure acceptance among NHL players

Matt Hendricks pointed to the interior of his right foot, where he had once been struck by a puck that left him with a broken bone, and declared: “two screws.” There have been other cracks caused by unyielding pucks, continued the Edmonton Oilers gritty winger during a discussion about exterior shot protection. Hendricks is one of the converted. He wears shot blockers on his...

Sharks bounce back with 5-2 win over Oilers

It took the entire first period for the Sharks, playing in the second of a back-to-back, to get their legs moving against a dreadful Edmonton Oilers team.
