Oil Kings Clinch WHL Eastern Conference Title

Oil Kings beat Rebels 5-2
A game that features two top ten prospects going into this year’s NHL entry draft is enough to garner attention. A Friday night WHL game featuring two top ten prospects in Red Deer is enough to attract a circus. As the scouts poured into the building, some wearing the logos of their teams, others merely with their clipboards and pens the importance of these final games became even more apparent.  While the Oil Kings’ have five players that will likely be drafted this summer, it is Griffin Reinhart who has stolen the spotlight.

The Other Oil In Town Delivers Excitement and Goals

Edmonton Oil Kings double up Portland Winterhawks 8-4
