Banner Raising Opening Night - TONIGHT @ 7PM
Edmonton, AB - The wait is finally over! Hockey returns to Rexall Place as the Oil Kings will finally kick off the 2012-13 season TONIGHT at 7:00 p.m.! The Oil Kings will begin defense of their 2012 WHL Championship against the 2011 WHL Champion Kootenay Ice.
After a 6-0-0-0 record over the Ice in the regular season the Oil Kings eliminated Cranbrook with a 4-0 sweep in the first round of the 2012 WHL Playoffs. The series victory was the Oil Kings first in the modern era of the franchise and the first time since 1973 the Oil kings advanced past the opening round. Edmonton dominated play in that series as they outscored the Ice 16-7 and outshot the defending champs 137-95 for the series.
The Oil Kings are 1-4-0-0 in season openers in the last 5 years. They won their first ever game back in the 2007-08 season with a 4–3 win (ironically) over the Kootenay Ice.
