Belov left Oilers for KHL because he didn’t want to play for Eakins

Anton Belov‘s sudden departure from the Edmonton Oilers for the KHL came out of nowhere.

Belov hopes Olympics experience translates to NHL

He’s back from Sochi earlier than he wanted to be and exhausted from a couple of long days of travel, but the Olympics weren’t a waste for Anton Belov.

Oilers in Sochi

Shaun Maddex Edmonton Oilers Writer The Olympics began this past weekend, and so far it has the feel of kinda limping along. I don’t feel the excitement. It is early though, and most events are done before waking so that definitely has an effect. However things will pick up this week, and hockey starts soon which should shake the indifference I have been feeling. As I type this...

There are still customs he may never shake like not talking after the pre-game skates so he can focus on the night ahead but after seven games in the National Hockey League Anton Belov is settling in with the Edmonton Oilers defence corps.

Richard Cloutier: So What Now, MacT?

The highlight of the Oilers off-season so far was signing UFA defenseman Anton Belov. I'd say drafting Darnell Nurse was the highlight, and he might very well be. We'll just need a few years before we know for sure. I'd be saying the same thing about anyone the Oilers could have drafted. It's always a wait-and-see situation with picks. Let's just do a little...

Word buzzing around this evening is that Finnish UFA goalie Antti Raanta had three teams on his short list: The Wild, Oilers and Blue Jackets. It sounds like the Wild and Blue Jackets have been...
