Edmonton Oilers NHL Tickets
The Edmonton Oilers joined the NHL in the 1979-80 season and immediately made the playoffs with Wayne Gretzky in the lead. In the '80s, the Oilers became the first to have three 50-goal scorers all on the same team. In the Oilers' 1984-85 season, they became the first team out of Western Canada to win the Stanley Cup since 1926. In 1987, the Oilers pulled off the rare feat of winning the Stanley Cup for the third time in a four-year span. After losing Gretzky in a trade with Los Angeles, the Oilers managed to shock the world just a couple of seasons later by winning the Stanley Cup again in 1990. In recent years, the team asserted itself during the 2016-17 season by winning 47 games with center Connor McDavid. It is a great time to be an Oilers fan and see McDavid on the ice along with the rest of the Oilers. You can get your tickets Stubhub.
