The Edmonton Oilers have definitely tapped into the Swedish hockey market with exciting players such as Linus Omark, Magnus Pääjärvi, Anton Lander and 2011 NHL Entry draft selection Oscar Kelfbom. Fans of the Swedish elite league are happy to see their countrymen move on to pursue their dreams, but they are of course sad to see them leave their local rinks.
About Oil Patch
Lisa McRitchie is a fairly new writer, online at least, but makes up for inexperience with passion for the game of hockey and memories of Mrs. Leskiw’s English AP class; who knew they would pay off one day.
Oil Patch focuses on the Edmonton Oilers, the Edmonton Oil Kings, The Oklahoma City Barons and Team Canada Hockey with game coverage, news updates, speculation and interviews.
Although the Oilers have had a difficult past decade… or three, here at Oil Patch, the future looks bright.
