Found November 12, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
PLAYERS: Martin Gernat
TEAMS: Edmonton Oilers
The Edmonton Oil Kings were proud to select in the first round of the 2011 CHL import draft Martin Gernat, a Slovakian player who had just been drafted in the fifth round by the Edmonton Oilers. Being a fifth round pick, expectations were low going into this season but Gernat may be out to prove just how much the amateur scouting of the Oilers has improved since Stu MacGregor has taken over at the helm.

Eklund: Shouldn't Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Be On the All-Star Ballot?

If there is one team we all watch on Center Ice it has to be the Edmonton Oilers. There is no doubt the Oilers are young, fast, and ridiculously exciting to watch. They are so deep with young talent I have no doubt that I will be visiting Edmonton in the next 3-5 years for another Stanley Cup Final. No doubt. There are many great stories surrounding these Oilers. *The return of Ryan Smy...

Summer 20: Tracking Well

I've started gathering information for the winter top 20 (it'll start later this month) and it should be fun this time around. Plenty of movement and all that, although the top 5 should be familiar. Here's a quick update on the summer 20Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: A wonderful start to his NHL career (16, 7-6-13 +1) and he's shown a nice range of skills. Miles from what he...

Edmonton Oilers among Top 5 teams we want to go far

Welcome to Center Ice Chat’s Top 5, an irregular series ranking performances this season. In this post, we rank not performance of hockey, but the team’s culture. More specifically, mascots. We take a look at the Top 5 mascots out and about in the NHL. The rankings are obscure and represent the entertainment value and history of each mascot. The 1967 Toronto Maple...

Hot Khabibulin

from John Kreiser of, The surprising Edmonton Oilers have gotten a lot of attention because of young stars like Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. However, it’s 38-year-old goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin who’s been the biggest difference between the team that finished 30th in the standings in 2010-11 and the one that takes a Northwest Division-leading 9-4-2 mark into...

Red Wings beat Oilers for 3rd straight win

DETROIT -- The Red Wings cracked the Bulin Wall Friday night. Edmonton Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin came into the game leading all goalies with a 0.98 goals-against average. Yet it was Wings goalie Jimmy Howard who made 24 saves and earned the shutout in the Wings' 3-0 victory over the young Oilers. It was Howard's league-leading third shutout this season. "...

Reader Contest: Enter Ryan Nugent-Hopkins poetry slam!

Edmonton Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is a rookie sensation that has inspired some sensational analysis. Like drawing comparisons to a young Wayne Gretzky. Or anything said about The Nuge during a CBC broadcast of an Oilers game; we're pretty sure the last time he was on, they claimed his blood is a cure for the hantavirus. So inspiring is Nugent-Hopkins that there'...

G16 Oilers at Red Wings

Playing against the Red Wings hasn't been a fun activity over the years. Bill Gadsby (in photo) was an effective defender in his era, and the man Lidstrom is effective in his own way in the modern era. Lidstrom--whose reputation rivals DiMaggio's in his time--and other important Red Wing players have a major issue to deal with--age. When I was young, Detroit was a clearing...

Oilers-Blackhawks Preview

The Edmonton Oilers have stumbled a bit since posting six wins in a row for the first time in over nine years.

Hoping to avoid a third consecutive defeat for the first time this season, the Oilers conclude a six-game road trip seeking a third straight win at the United Center on...

Veterans Day GDT - Game #14:  Red Wings host Oilers (7:30)

DET (7-5-1) are playing game 5 of their 6 game homestand (2-1-1).  The Wings look to extend their modest winning streak to three games, which has seen them outscore the opposition 10-2.  Winning tonight will be no easy task against the Northwest leading Oil (9-4-2).  The Oil do not score (2.33, 23), do not shoot the puck (25.5, 28), and can’t win a draw (47.3, 26); but their...
