Edmonton Oilers Season in Review: 2016-2017
Because the next season is about to begin, I was feeling a little nostalgic and made one of these so enjoy the Edmonton Oilers Seaon in Review 2016-2017!
We start the season drafting some kid named Jesse Puljujärvi who had absolutely no success playing in the World Junior Championship and not helping Finland to a gold medal at all
then he just makes the team out of camp and video-bombs newly made captain, Connor, and his interview while devouring a pizza slice? Savage
and then he goes and just scores his first NHL goal like it’s no big deal like boi
Edmonton Oilers vs. Winnipeg Jets for the Heritage Classic got me screaming in my living room on a quiet sunday afternoon
This game also gifted us with the most iconic celly (they’re just yelling)
Captain Connor McDavid gets his first career hat-trick in the same building that got him his first career NHL goal and evidently Pools looks happier about his hatty than he does
The 2017 Skills Comp provided us with a showcase of talent but most importantly, Drake dressed as Drake.
Cam Talbot, one of the best looking guys on the planet, decides he’s just going to break the record for most wins in a season by an Oiler held by legend GRANT FUHR and make it look easy under an Oilers team that was unpredictable.

Also this iconic moment of when Dratty was being pulled by the cutest pupper
MARCH 28, 2017 -THE EDMONTON OILERS LIFT THE CURSE ON FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT AND CLINCH THEIR FIRST PLAYOFF BIRTH SINCE THE 2005-2006 SEASON.
Davo (to nobody’s surprise) reaches the century and gets a little pat on the head from Dratty and screams of support from the fans for a well deserved Hart
First game at Rogers Place and the fans and the boys look proud i honestly think Klef is about to tear up
how could we forget about this iconic statement from Captain
Sass Connor McDavid about the Oilers’ first huge loss in the playoffs
and after beating the odds, the boys beat the San Jose Sharks in 6 games to move on to the 2nd round
After a tough second round, Leon “duck-hunter” Draisaitl gets a hat trick in game 6 against the ducks to keep the Oilers alive for one more game and gives Oil Country the best last game of the season.
also can you believe management let a boy band to lead the Oilers to the playoffs
The Edmonton Oilers’ Season End Review just makes me even more excited for the 2017-2018 season. Here’s to more Godsend goaltending from Talbsy, allowed goals for Kass (for once), screams from the boys, and playoff cellies!
