Edmonton Oilers Tickets for Sale

The Edmonton Oilers already have given young talented forwards Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Magnus Paajarvi, and Sam Gagner last season. The franchise is excited to have Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, but the center is still a season in the farm system and 20 pounds from being ready to dominate in the NHL. Instead, the front office added reliable scoring left wing Ryan Smyth, veteran center Eric Belanger, and left wing Ben Eager to wrangle the young guns.

Edmonton also added some grittiness to the blue line with defensemen Cam Barker and Andy Sutton. They are solid blue liners and should help offensive-mind defensemen Ryan Whitney and Ladislav Smid learn a little about protecting goalie Nikolai Khabibulin, who is holding the reigns while Devan Dubnyk develops.

Edmonton Oilers History

The Edmonton Oilers are one of the Canadian franchises to make the jump from the World Hockey Association to the NHL. They were nothing more than a meddling franchise in the WHA with a single finals appearance, but mostly middle of the pack finishes. The move to the NHL proved far more advantageous to the Oilers than some would think.

The Oilers enjoyed a dynasty from 1983 to 1990 thanks to the offensive force that was Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky was not the only successful find in Edmonton. The team also drafted Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson, Jari Kurri, Paul Coffey, Kevin Lowe, Grant Fuhr and Andy Moog. With several 100-point players on front line and on the blue line, the Edmonton Oilers won five Stanley Cups from the 1983-84 season to the 1989-1990 season.

It took a while, but the 1988 trade that sent Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings would begin the decline of the franchise in the 1990s. By the end of the decade the Edmonton Oilers rode the outstanding play goalie Curtis Joseph to become a playoff team from 1996 to the lockout. Post lockout the Oilers made a promising trip to the finals, but quickly fell from grace. TheSeats has Edmonton Oilers tickets for the new season at the Rexall Place as the hockey team has assembled the talent to rise out of the Northwest and become a power once again.
