It’s a new day for the Edmonton Oilers, who turned the page this summer with the additions of general manager Peter Chiarelli and coach Todd McLellan. The duo got to work quickly, rebuilding the Oilers from the ground up: they secured the services of defender Andrej Sekera as well as guard Cam Talbot. They drafted the world’s top hockey prospect in Connor McDavid with their No. 1 overall pick, and with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall returning to the ice for Edmonton, the Pacific Division may just be in for a rude awakening in 2015-16.

Edmonton Oilers 2015-2016 News and Updates
1/26/16 - The Edmonton Oilers are struggling. Their last victory was nearly two weeks ago and they are now on a three-game losing streak. Worse, this losing streak has continued into their short break back on their home rink. On January 23rd, the Oilers hosted the Nashville Predators and came away with a final score of 4-1. They are about to start a four-game away series, so fans are hoping the Oilers will be able to gain some momentum before heading out. Their last chance will be on February 2nd when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets. Be sure to get your tickets to come show your support. Afterward, the Oilers will not return until February 11th when they begin their longest home series yet.
1/19/16 - The Edmonton Oilers’ most recent series of away games have been a challenge. While they did manage to earn a strong 4-2 victory in the opening match against the Florida Panthers, they have failed to hold their own against the Tamp Bay Lightning and the Dallas Stars since then. This means the Oilers have a season record of 19-25-5 and hold the 7th place in the Pacific Division. The good news is that the Oilers are returning to their home rink for back-to-back home games, starting January 23th. They will host the Nashville Predators and the Columbus Blue Jackets, so be sure to get your tickets and come show your support.
1/12/16 - This Saturday, Jan. 16, the Edmonton Oilers will be playing a big game against their Pacific Division rivals, the Calgary Flames. The Oilers will be looking to break their four-game losing streak and have decided to call up Zach Kassian from Bakersfield to help them get the job done. In order to make the change to the roster, however, the team had to place winger Rob Klinkhammer on waivers. Klinkhammer has played just 13 games this season due to an ankle injury and will likely be with the Bakersfield Condors while he heals. Come see Zach Kassian’s debut with the Oilers this Saturday at Rexall Palace! Tickets can be purchased now for $59 and up.
1/5/16 - They’ve got considerable ground to make up if they hope to contend for the postseason in 2016, but the Edmonton Oilers are off to a good start since New Year’s Day. They scored a 4-3 shootout victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday and followed it up with a 1-0 overtime win against Carolina, and with just two points separating five teams in the Pacific Division, it’s still anyone’s game. Edmonton will wrap up their six-game home stand with contests versus Tampa Bay and Florida before hitting the road early next week. Get your seats for Lightning at Oilers on Friday night! Tickets are on sale now and start at just $6 each!
12/29/15 - The Edmonton Oilers have started their much-anticipated series of six home games. Unfortunately, this run comes right on the heels of a few disappointing losses. The Oilers did not have enough momentum, and their first game, against the Los Angeles Kings ended in defeat. The final score came to 5-2, with neither team scoring in the first period. Hopefully, the Oilers will be able to come back and take full advantage of the home advantage this week. Up next, they will be hosting the Anaheim Ducks on December 31st, followed by the Arizona Coyotes on January 2nd. Tickets for the latter matchup are still available starting as low as $29.
12/21/15 - December started so well for the Edmonton Oilers that it seemed they might rise from their second-to-last ranking in the Pacific Division of the NHL’s Western Conference. After winning six straight games, however, the Oilers have had three straight losses, including a dismal 5-1 thrashing by the Avalanche. Despite killer performance by the front line, the Oilers had a hard time making shots against Colorado’s goalie. After the bad streak, Edmonton is hoping that a Monday night (Dec. 21) home game against the Jets will help get them back on track. Get your tickets today and join the rest of the fans at the Rexall Palace as they cheer on the Edmonton Oilers! Tickets start at $142.
12/15/15 - It’s a great time to be on the Edmonton Oilers. The crew has won their last six games and, although only one victory came on the road, they are looking mighty strong. The Oilers most recently defeated the Boston Bruins, who are the first of four competitors they’ll face on the road. Edmonton managed to pull out the upset and dash the hopes of the home team and crowd, beating them 3 – 2 in overtime. They’ll remain on the road to face the New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks, and Colorado Avalanche before returning to Alberta to play the Winnipeg Jets. Come support the Oilers after a long road trip next Monday!
12/8/15 - The Edmonton Oilers are bringing back Nikita Nikitin from the Bakersfield Condors. After originally signing him to the NHL in June 2014, they reassigned him to the AHL team to help him shore up his game. After success with the team, he has earned the right to rejoin the professionals. “He’s carried himself very well down there from all reports,” remarked Edmonton coach Todd McLellan. With Andrew Ference on the injured list, the decision to recall Nikitin was made in part to give the team a little more depth in the defenseman position. The Oilers are getting ready for a huge game against the New York Rangers this Friday, Dec. 11, at the Rexall Place arena. Tickets are available now for $27 and up.
12/1/15 - After being shut out by the Maple Leafs on Monday, the Edmonton Oilers beat the Bruins in an exciting back and forth game that came down to a shootout. Goalie Anders Nilsson had his work cut out for him, making 38 saves throughout the game. Mark Letestu scored a short handed goal 10 minutes into the second period to bring the Oilers ahead. Eight minutes later, the Bruins equalized. The Oilers got ahead again in the third period when Matt Hendricks scored. Boston equalized again, sending the game into overtime. Jordan Eberle was the only one to score in the shootout, giving the victory to Edmonton. The team hosts the Stars on December 4, with tickets available starting at $12.
11/24/15 - The Edmonton Oilers have been struggling ever since the season began. They are at the bottom of the standing board in the Pacific Division and can’t seem to win more than one game in a row. On November 23 they slapped the puck against the Washington Capitals. The game was not strong offensively, ending with the Capitals on top 1-0. A lot of the credit goes to the Capitals strong defense, including the performance of Braden Holtby. The Oilers hit the road this weekend to take on the Detroit Red Wings. Get your tickets today to cheer on the Oilers to a victory. Tickets start at $56 each and are still available.
11/17/15 - The Edmonton Oilers came close but were unable to add a win to the record when they lost to the Blackhawks on November 18 in overtime. The Blackhawks drew ahead first, scoring two points in the second period. Jordan Eberle scored to bring the Oilers to within one point late in the period, and then Benoit Pouliot tied the game four minutes into the third. Chicago scored again to get ahead, but Leon Draisaitl equalized the game and took it into overtime. Unfortunately, the Blackhawk's goalie snagging an impressive save in the final seconds of play, and the game went to the Blackhawks. The Oilers next host the Devils on the 20, and tickets are available starting at $31.
11/10/15 - The Edmonton Oilers just finished up a series of four away games, ending with an exciting matchup with the Los Angeles Kings on November 14th. The Oilers played well, but they were only able to win one of the four matches. They took a 4-3 victory against the Anaheim Ducks. Now, however, the Oilers should be able to relax a little as they prepare for two home matches. They will be facing the Chicago Blackhawks and the New Jersey Devils, both of whom are potent challengers. Get your tickets to help cheer the Oilers on to beating out their toughest obstacles yet. Tickets are available starting at $27 and $32 respectively.
11/3/15 - After losing a close game against the Flames on the 31, the Edmonton Oilers beat the Flyers. In the game against the Flames, the Oilers rallied late to tie the game, but then the Flames scored in the final minute of play to take the win. The Oilers once again had to rally from behind when they played the Flyers, but this time they were successful. After scoring first with a power play goal late in the first period, they fell behind 2-1 by the end of the second. They scored three goals in the third period to take the win. They will look to get another win when they play the Penguins on the 6. Tickets are available staring at $85.
10/27/15 - One hockey team that you don’t hear a lot about is the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers are currently sitting in the middle of the pack in the Pacific Division and seem to be holding their own. They went on a three-game winning streak during the middle of October, but after losing to the Washington Capitals on October 23, the Oilers haven’t been able to pull out of a struggling, losing slump. See if the Oilers can regroup and bring their team back together when they take on the Calgary Flames on October 31. It is the perfect way to spend your Halloween weekend, so get your tickets before it is too late.
10/20/15 - Vaunted rookie Connor McDavid was expected to bring excitement to an Edmonton Oilers team that finished at the bottom of the league last season. So far, the No. 1 overall pick is doing just fine. McDavid knocked in the fourth goal of his young NHL career, befuddling Detroit net minder Petr Mrazek with a stunning deke to put Edmonton up 3-0. The Red Wings would manage a late score to get themselves on the board, but it wasn’t nearly enough to catch up before the horn. Edmonton will look to climb the Pacific Division standings with a couple home wins this weekend. Get your tickets for Oilers vs. Kings at Rexall Place from $20 and up!
10/15/15 - The Edmonton Oilers aren’t proud of the way that their 2015 season has started. Already, the Oilers have lost their first three games and haven’t been able to add a W to their record. On October 13, the Oilers took on the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center. Everything was all tied up at the end of the second period, but that is when Stars 13-year veteran, Jason Spezza, took matters into his own hands. He broke the tiebreaker late in the third period, making it his third goal of the night and leading the Stars to victory. See if the Oilers can come back from their losing streak when they slap sticks with the Calgary Flames on October 17. Buy your tickets today.
10/6/15 - The Edmonton Oilers are ready for their first game against the St. Louis Blues on October 8. With the opening game so close, the Oilers have announced their captains for the season. Joining former captain Andrew Ference will be Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Jordan Eberle as alternate captains. Because Eberle is currently on the injured list, Matt Hendricks will start the season as an alternate until Eberle's return. The Oilers have also finalized their roster in preparation for the start of the season, sending Leon Draisaitl to the AHL Bakersfield Condors and listing Dillon Simpson on the injured reserve list alongside Eberle. You can still get your tickets for all the games this season, with prices starting at just $7.
9/15/15 - More than 14,000 fans showed up to the Rexall Palace to watch the Edmonton Oilers in an exciting exhibition game Wednesday night. For many, the evening was an exciting kickoff to the 2015-2016 hockey season, and the expectations are high for the Oilers and for newcomer, Connor McDavid. In his debut with the Oilers, he made three assists to help his team beat the scrimmage. Coach Gerry Fleming was happy with McDavid’s performance, stating he is “explosive and such a dynamic player, he’s fun to watch.” Edmonton fans will have plenty of chances to see the Oilers play in the upcoming weeks and months, as the preseason is set to begin next week! They will take on the Flames at Rexall Palace on Monday (Sept. 21). Tickets are on sale now and start at just $9.
4/8/15 - If nothing else, the Edmonton Oilers didn’t finish in last place in their division this season, though they remained in the cellar for a significant portion of the year. However, the Oilers are hoping for more success next year, with the possibility of high draft picks in the offseason.
3/25/15 - Wait ‘til next year, Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers, who have struggled mightily all season, were eliminated from playoff contention last week, joining Arizona as the first two Western Conference squads to be knocked out of the running; the Oilers are 25 points behind their next nearest Pacific Division rivals, San Jose.
3/16/15 - Mathematically eliminated from the postseason, the Edmonton Oilers will see their final 13 games as opportunities to gain experience for next season. They open a six-game stretch of games on their home ice beginning on Monday versus the Toronto Maple Leafs, as they look for a measure of revenge for the 5-1 beating the Leafs handed them back in early February. We have great prices on Oilers home games throughout the week, including $9 seats for Edmonton vs. Columbus on Wednesday night, and $28 tickets to see the hometown team take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday. Bring the family out to Rexall Place and enjoy all the excitement of the NHL live—there are only a handful of opportunities remaining this season, so don’t miss out!
3/11/15 - Can the Edmonton Oilers work their way out of the Pacific Division – and Western Conference – cellar this season? The Oilers will need a big push to get past division rival Arizona; currently, they’re three points behind the Coyotes, and in the middle of a five game losing streak.
3/4/15 - Even though the team above them in the Pacific Division standings, Arizona, has failed to win in their last 10 games, the Edmonton Oilers still can’t get around them. The Oilers themselves have lost their last two and four out of their last five, the lone bright spot being a victory on the road two weeks ago in Minnesota.
2/25/15 - They’re making a move, these Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers, who won their last outing on the road at Minnesota, have moved to within one point of sixth-place Arizona, and an opportunity to escape the cellar of the Pacific Division if the cards fall right.
2/19/15 - After going 2-4 on a six game road trip through Eastern Conference foes, the Edmonton Oilers returned to home ice at Rexall Place and secured a 4-3 shootout win over Boston. The Oilers made good use of the power play, converting two of four man-advantage opportunities.
2/4/15 - Since coming back from the All-Star break, the Edmonton Oilers have split their four contests, with a win in their most recent outing. The Oilers needed to go to a shootout, though, to gain the victory over division rival San Jose.
1/28/15 - A two-game winning streak by the Edmonton Oilers came to a halt Tuesday night, as the league returned to action after the All-Star Game. The Oilers fell at home to Minnesota by a 2-1 count, with Boyd Gordon’s goal the only tally for the Oilers.
1/21/15 - Break ‘em up, they’re on a winning streak. The Edmonton Oilers, who are struggling mightily to maintain relevance in a division where the top team is threatening to run away, have won two games for the first time since November. The Oilers are currently 33 points behind first place Anaheim.
1/14/15 - With a win over Chicago last Friday, the Edmonton Oilers joined the rest of the league at the 10-victory level. However, the Oilers have dropped their last two since, and remain as the Pacific Division’s cellar-dweller with a league low 29 points from 44 games.
1/7/15 - They’re 28th in the league in goals scored per game; 29th in the league in goals allowed per game, and power play conversion. They’re 25th on the penalty kill. Yes, it’s been quite a fall for the Edmonton Oilers from the halcyon days of Gretzky and Messier.
12/17/14 - What’s the difference between Anaheim and Edmonton? Well, hockey-wise, it’s 27 points – that’s the gap between Pacific Division leading Anaheim and the cellar-dwelling Edmonton Oilers, who are in the midst of a five-game losing streak. The Oilers are the lone remaining Western Conference squad who have yet to reach the 10-win plateau.
12/10/14 - For the struggling Edmonton Oilers, it’s becoming difficult to point to many positives. The Oilers are tied with Carolina from the East in fewest points; have the fewest wins of any team in the league (seven); and have the second-worst goal differential (minus-34, trailing only Buffalo’s minus-37).
12/3/14 - It’s been a disappointing first two months of the NHL season at the Rexall Centre, where the Edmonton Oilers have accumulated just 16 points, on a level with injury-riddled Columbus for fewest in the NHL. The Oilers are on a 10 game losing streak and have fallen seven points behind Arizona in the Pacific Division.
11/19/ 14 - It’s shaping up to be another long season in Northern Alberta. The Edmonton Oilers, at the bottom of the Pacific Division, are one of the three bottom-most teams in the league, just a single point ahead of Eastern Conference laggards Columbus, and two points ahead of Buffalo.
11/12/14 - As teams in the Pacific Division like Anaheim and Vancouver pull away, the Edmonton Oilers fin themselves mired in last place, tied with Arizona. The Oilers are being outscored by an average of almost a goal a game, and overall are minus-14 in goal differential.
10/28/14 - After a devastating loss against the Nashville Predators, the Oilers are gearing up for what they hope will be the beginning of a turnaround. With a handful of new players, it’s fair to assume that the Edmonton Oilers are a ticking time bomb of potential just waiting to break lose on the league. Their very own ice seems like the ideal place for that new skill to be carefully focused into one, collective team effort, which could mean good things for the upcoming home game. Though fans have been frustrated with the slow start to the season, the Oilers are eager to show the NHL that they mean business. Fans can get in on the action this Saturday night with ticket prices starting at $47.
Edmonton Oilers will start to reap the benefits from their rebuilding project in the 2014-2015 season. After picking op the No. 1 pick in the 2010-2012 NHL Drafts, and the No. 7 in ’13 and No. 3 in ’14, the Oilers are teeming with young players and their immeasurable potential. In his sophomore year, head coach Dallas Eakins will look to further harness that power and pull Edmonton up from the pool of NHL bottom dwellers. The front office made some additional roster moves that should bolster their rebuild, including the trade for Teddy Purcell in exchange for Sam Gagner (Tampa Bay) and the additions of Benoit Pouliot, Mark Fayne and Nikita Nikitin—not to mention, first round pick Leon Draisaitl. Score Edmonton Oilers tickets for their 2014-2015 season and see this team on the rise! See them open up their 82-game slate at Rexall Place on Oct. 9 against the Calgary Flames.
4/9/14 – By the sounds of things, Ryan Jones will never be part of the Edmonton Oilers lineup again. After four seasons with the club, the winger has said publically that he is ready to move on. Jones was struck in the knee by a puck in late March against the Ducks and although the injury will not require surgery, the veteran will not return before the season finale. The Oilers last game at Rexall Place this season is set for Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks (min $62). The cheapest Edmonton Oilers tickets on Thursday when the Los Angeles Kings visit is a measly $12, 200 level seats are just $2 more.
4/3/14 – With Ryan Jones (knee) and Luke Gazdic (shoulder) out with season-ending injuries, the Oilers called up Will Acton from OKC and moved Phillip Larsen to the wing from blueline. One Oiler who hopes to be back in the lineup before the regular-season culminates is team captain, Andrew Ference, who has been out since March 28 with a partially torn pectoral muscle. The squad was set to record their second straight win over the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday but fell short after their mighty opponents scored three unanswered goals. Looking forward, the Oilers travel to Phoenix to finish off their California road trip; Edmonton is 5-16 in the last 21 meetings against the Coyotes in the desert.
3/28/14 – After going 10-4-3, Edmonton dropped three straight which summarizes their roller coaster year. Tonight the Oilers will face the Anaheim Ducks at home in their first of two meeting in the next 10 days. Friday’s matchup is averaging $111, $20 more than the April 6 game at Rexall Place. Loyal Edmontonians will fill the building and create a notoriously loud environment when the So Cal team visits; will it be enough to help the Oilers get their first win at Rexall Place against Anaheim since 2007?
3/19/14 – With Tuesday’s 5-1 victory over Nashville, the Oilers have gone 10-4-3 over their last seventeen. That puts Edmonton within one point of the Florida Panthers and within four of the Calgary Flames in the NHL Standings. With five more games in Edmonton, including one against Buffalo (avg. $47) and another vs. Calgary Flames (avg. $139), the Oilers are capable of extending their current streak. Cheap Edmonton Oilers tickets are available for under $30 to every remaining regular-season home game except the finale (Vancouver).
3/10/14 – The Edmonton Oilers were sellers in Wednesday’s trade deadline fare, trading Nick Shultz to the Blue Jackets for a pick and dealing 11-year Oiler Ales Hemsky to the Senators for a pair of draft picks. Shultz and Hemsky were two of the Senators four 30+ veterans dealt elsewhere. The Oilers did land goalie Viktor Fasth from the Ducks who is expected to start Tuesday against the Wild; the add gives Edmonton a duo of Ben Scrivens and Fasth which looks to be an upgrade from the start of the season. After five straight at Rexall Place, the Oilers hit the road for four in a row this week.
3/4/14 – The Oilers will play three games at home this week – Senators (avg. $68), Islanders (avg. $75), Kings (avg. $78) - after recently signing Ben Scrivens to a two-year contract extension. One day before the NHL trade deadline, the Oilers sent Ilya Bryzgalov to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for a 2014 fourth-round pick. Separately, Edmonton acquired Viktor Fasth from Anaheim for a third-round pick in 2015 and a third-rounder in 2014. The duo of Scrivens and Fasth will essentially replace the tandem of Devan Dubnyk and Jason LaBarbera from the start of the season – an upgrade to the Edmonton Oilers roster!
2/25/14 - When practice resumed following the Olympic break, the Oilers found themselves with quite a crowded blue line. Edmonton worked with nine defensemen, and two more call-ups, which means trade deadline moves are bound to happen soon. In addition to possibly moving Sam Gagner and Aleš Hemsky, the most likely trade to be made will be veteran Nick Schultz, who may be exchanged for a draft pick. See if the offensive trifecta (Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle) and stellar goalie Ben Scrivens (first in the NHL in save percentage) can carry the Oilers into a winning season. Edmonton will meet the Minnesota Wild in their first game back from Sochi; tickets start at $12 for the Thursday night match at Rexall Place.
2/21/14 - Before the Olympic break, the Edmonton Oilers were 5-3-2 and showing greatly improved numbers over their early season record. Can they maintain the momentum for the second half of the year? The Oilers will faceoff against the Minnesota Wild when they return from break on 2/27 with talented addition Ben Scrivens (from Los Angeles) as netminder. Edmonton Oilers tickets are just $12 to get in on the NHL action! All three players Edmonton sent to Sochi will come back medal-less: Martin Marcninin (Slovakia), Anton Belov (Russia) and Ales Hemsky (Czech Republic).
2/4/14 – The Oilers may be one of the under-performing teams in the league but not as of late as Edmonton has won four of their last five. But fans have to assume that a change in the Oilers roster is palpable ahead of the NHL trade deadline. Most recently, the Leafs sent Mark Fraser to the Oilers for two prospects Friday. Sources say that there have been talks with the Kings about a Sam Gagner trade; the Forward inked a three-year contract with an annual average value of $4.8 million after a valuable effort last season for the Oilers. Will we see a revamped squad when the Edmonton Oilers return to the ice in late February?
1/30/14 – Did you watch newly acquired Ben Scrivens set an NHL record with 59 saves Wednesday night against the Sharks? The spectacular performance in front of a home crowd helped the Oilers shutout San Jose 3-0. Now, with three straight wins to their name, the Oilers will hit the road for four in a row. Fans won’t see their beloved team until after the 2014 Olympic games when Edmonton returns to the ice Feb 27 to take on Minnesota. Edmonton Oilers tickets are averaging $125 for the 15 remaining games at Rexall Place.
The Oilers have the third most expensive NHL tickets in the league, averaging $337. Last year Oilers tickets were the eighth most expensive averaging $175. The 92% increase in price since last year is the second largest increase of any NHL team. The Oilers have not played in the postseason for seven straight seasons but fans are finding optimism with the recent signing of hometown defenceman Andrew Ference and new GM Craig MacTavish. Last year the Oilers climbed the League standings and battled playoff teams in the regular season. Improvement from the young squad was noticed and has Oilers fans excited for the 2013-14 year. The additions of David Perron, Denis Grebeshkov, Andrew Ference, and Philip Larsen this offseason should help in the rebuilding process and add some needed experience to the Oilers roster.
The Edmonton Oilers will face rivals Calgary Flames three times during the regular season at Rexall Place. Battle of Alberta tickets are most expensive for the two March meetings, averaging $374 (3/1) and $367 (3/22); in fact these two games are the second and third most expensive games on the Edmonton Oilers schedule. The highest priced game comes against the Pittsburgh Penguins on 1/10 (avg. $412).
A new Edmonton arena is being built for the Oilers in downtown for the 2016 season. The $480 million project is expected to break ground this summer and the final product will hold 18,500 people.
