Okotoks Oilers off and running in the 2009/10 season.

The Oilers are into the new season now, and after starting off the season on a losing way, have now won 2 in a row.

It's great to have hockey back in season, even though it tells you that the cold weather is coming.

The boys are just finding their legs and getting use to the rookies in the line-up. On Friday night (Sept 18) there were 7 rookies on the ice.

Good to see Chris Duszynski awarded the C. Wearing the A were Quinn Sproule and Brandon Hoogenboom.

Will post here once in a awhile. Our main writings will be on the Oilers official website.

Okotoks Oilers hockey season about to start

Can you believe that summer is winding down and as we switch our focus from the Okotoks Dawgs to the Okotoks Oilers, we all dread the cold and snow that will be here.

After a very successful year of the WMBL Dawgs, the season ended in a very anti-climatic way. Sure, we still call our team champions, and rightfully though, but we wanted to win the proper way. Well, maybe next year.

We are now at the Okotoks Centennial Arena watching our hockey boys fight for a position on the Oilers team. Kind of strange to be sitting in the stands with shorts and sandels at this time of year.

We look forward to a good season with the guys putting out a good effort everytime they step on the ice. Personally, I don't think they will be as high in the standings as in the past, but I've eaten my words on many occasions before.

So Go Oilers Go.
