Edmonton - Dec. 6, 2013: If only the Edmonton Oilers could find a way to play the Columbus Blue Jackets or Colorado Avalanche on a somewhat regular basis on home ice, all would be good in Oil Country.

Taylor Hall led the onslaught upfront with a four point effort, including hat-trick #4 of his young career. FULL STORY
Windsor - Dec. 6, 2013: Brody Milne's first goal as a member of the Windsor Spitfires was a memorable one; the game winner in a 5-2 victory over the Saginaw Spirit on Thursday night in front of 4,923 at the WFCU Centre.

Edmnton - Dec. 5, 2013: Outside of probably netminder Devan Dubnyk, no player currently on the Edmonton Oilers roster is a more polarizing figure among fans than defenceman Jeff Petry. While he may not be everyone’s cup of tea, there is no questioning the fact Petry is this team’s best blueliner and by a fairly wide margin. FULL STORY
Windsor - Dec. 4, 2013: As a relative newcomer to Windsor, I was excited for the beginning of last year's Windsor Spitfires season. All indications pointed to them having a solid year in 2012-13, but the true focus was on making a run to host and win the Memorial Cup this year. The team tagline was fittingly - Reloaded! Kerby Rychel and Nick Ebert have been traded to the Guelph Storm. FULL STORY
Edmonton - Dec. 4, 2013: The Winnipeg Jets have had a very interesting season so far to say the least. Their leading scorer is Bryan Little who is on pace to shatter his career best. This despite the fact that Captain Andrew Ladd has experienced a major correction on goal scoring (as was to be expected) and Blake Wheeler has not exactly lit the world on fire. FULL STORY
Edmonton - Dec. 4, 2013: Last night’s 6-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes pretty much summed up the Edmonton Oilers 2013-14 season. As per usual, they put in a decent effort on home ice but yet again, played with zero energy or urgency in their game. Outside of David Perron, who scored both goals and was a complete pain in the ass for the Coyotes to deal with for the entire sixty minutes, Dallas Eakins had far too many passengers on the night.
Edmonton - Dec. 3, 2013: Colossal, enormous, gargantuan, giant, humongous, immense, mammoth, massive, monumental, tremendous, or my favourite, magnificent! Last night the Winnipeg Jets did what no one else has done to New York Rangers goalie Cam Talbot this year, they scored more than two goals. Olli Jokinen had a nice return to Broadway scoring two huge goals in the third to carry his team to a 5-2 win.
Edmonton - Dec. 3, 2013: In the grand scheme of things, you would have to think yesterday’s disappointment will end up being nothing more than a blip on the radar screen for Edmonton Oilers prospect Darnell Nurse. While not being selected as one of the final eight defencemen to audition for a spot to represent Team Canada at the upcoming 2014 World Junior Championship has got to be tough to take, bet on the kid using this as motivation to become an even better player.
Windsor - Dec. 2, 2013: General Manager Warren Rychel has made his second trade in less than 48 hours, sending forward Ryan Verbeek to the Kingston Frontenacs in exchange for forward Sam Povorozniouk and Kingston's 4th round draft pick in 2016.
