Setting an unprecedented sporting spectacle, Oilers President and COO Patrick LaForge announced Sunday the Edmonton Oilers issued a challenge to the Edmonton Eskimos to go head-to-head in a two-game, total-point series later this spring.

Edmonton Eskimos President and CEO Len Rhodes was quick to accept the challenge issued by the Oilers. Game 1 will see the squads pitted against one another on Thursday, Jun. 7 at Rexall Place in an all-out, full-gear hockey game.

Oilers lose 4-1 to Kings
With four games left in the Edmonton Oilers’ season, the injury bug has struck. The team has been relatively healthy when compared to the past two seasons, but in this one game, the Oilers lost their top two defencemen to injury. Jeff Petry who had a second off night was struck in the face with a puck and needed an x-ray on the injured side of his face...
