Edmonton Oilers Season In Review: Jordan Eberle

, , Leave a comment

Once he put it together, though, he ended up posting some very solid numbers. Of course, it was going to be tough to live up to what he did in 2011-2012. He had a career year, finishing with just under a point per game, finishing the season with 76 points in 78 games. It was a 33-point jump from his production the previous season, which was his rookie year. Eberle’s production was steady this season, as far as his overall point production is concerned, but he had issues getting it going from a goal-scoring perspective. His ability to put the puck in the back of the net never really came to him, after a season in which he scored 34 goals. Playing in all 48 games in 2013, Eberle finished with 37 points. Not a bad total at all. In fact, he finished among the league leaders when the season came to an end. Yet, many are looking at Eberle’s season as something of a disappointment. Much of that is likely dictated by the fact that the Oilers failed to make the playoffs yet again. source: http://www.rantsports.com/nhl/2013/05/02/edmonton-oilers-season-in-review-jordan-eberle/

Oilers will pick seventh overall in NHL entry draft

For the last three years, the Oilers secured the right to make the first pick in the NHL entry draft. The only salve for finishing at the bottom of the standings was the addition of Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov. This spring, however, all 14 non-playoff teams had a shot at the No. 1 pick. When the lottery results were unveiled on Monday, the 29th-place Colorado Avalanche were the big winners. Edmonton retained the seventh pick. Based on their 24th-place finish, the Oilers went into the draft lottery with a 4.7-per-cent chance of picking first on June 30. The Avalanche, who had an 18.8-per-cent chance, bumped the 30th-place Florida Panthers into the No. 2 spot. The draft will be a one-day event at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. For new general manager Craig MacTavish, it will be his chance to start putting his imprint on the Oilers. He said on Monday that he’s open to moving the first-round pick. source: http://www.edmontonjournal.com/sports/Oilers+will+pick+seventh+overall+entry+draft/8312489/story.html

Predicting the Top 5 Players on the Edmonton Oilers’ Draft Board


In 53 games playing in his native Finland for Tappara, Barkov registered 21 goals and 27 assists for a total of 48 points and was an impressive plus-18. It is almost certain that Barkov will be gone before the Oilers are on the clock at with the seventh pick. However, if for some reason he does fall to Edmonton, Barkov would be a nice addition. 5. Curtis Lazar, C/RW Lazar already plays in Edmonton and if the Oilers trade down they could get him later in the first round. Curtis Lazar is a long shot to be drafted by the Oilers. Seventh overall may be a bit too early for the team to take him. However, if the Oilers were to trade down and Lazar was still available, the team would almost certainly give the Oil Kings standout a look. Oilers upper management should know all about what Lazar can bring to a team, seeing as he plays in Edmonton. At 6’0” and 193 pounds, Lazar brings a nice blend of size and skill to the ice.  4. Rasmus Ristolainen, D This is one big defenseman that could anchor the Oilers blueline for years to come. source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1626607-predicting-the-top-5-players-on-the-edmonton-oilers-draft-board
