Power Rankings
If Oilers fans did nothing but look at Connor McDavid's stat line instead of the standings, things aren't going so bad. McDavid has six points over his first four games since returning from a broken clavicle. Meanwhile, the Oilers are tied with the Blue Jackets for the worst record in hockey.
Connor McDavid is back after three months away to heal his fractured clavicle. Though the playoffs are unlikely, No. 97 can help continue building optimism for the future and give the fans something to enjoy in the last days of Rexall Place.
No team has had worse injury luck than the Oilers this season. That's contributed to their last-place spot in the Western Conference. Connor McDavid could be coming back soon, though, as he has been cleared for contact.
The Oilers are struggling again this season. Not a lot was expected, but they had a chance to be better. Unfortunately for Edmonton, however, they've been hammered with long-term injuries to key players. The latest is forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who was hurt blocking a shot.
Connor McDavid is getting closer to his return, which is great news for the Oilers. There hasn't been much else to get excited about. With just three wins over their last 10 games, the team is back in the Western Conference basement.
The Oilers halted their recent losing streak with back-to-back wins via shootout and overtime. Meanwhile, Taylor Hall has continued scoring at a point-per-game pace with 16 goals and 25 assists. He's having a great season on a bad team.
Having lost five of their last six games, the Oilers have nearly canceled out all of the good feelings from their recent six-game winning streak. After making a small trade to acquire Zack Kassian, does GM Peter Chiarelli have anything else up his sleeve?
The Oilers took a step back after a few leaps forward on that six-game winning streak they put together to start December. Leon Draisaitl continues to be a bright spot with 30 points in 25 games since his call-up.
For the second time this season, the Oilers have managed to win three consecutive games, one of which includes an overtime triumph over the league-leading Dallas Stars. Goalie Anders Nilsson has been the real bright spot of late.
GM Peter Chiarelli is talking about making changes after publicly expressing his disappointment with this start. Could that mean one of the core players gets shipped out?
Preseason Power Rankings
Goals have been hard to come by early for the Oilers and that may be true for a little while. The Oilers' season-opening schedule is a rough one. Eight of their next 10 are against playoff teams from a year ago.
