History Of The Edmonton Oilers
The Edmonton Oilers were not always part of the NHL. In fact, the team was founded in 1971 and played its first hockey game in 1972 as one of the “Original 12” teams in the new World Hockey Association. The province of Alberta was supposed to have two teams in the league with the Calgary Broncos being the southern provincial entry but that team relocated to Cleveland prior to the inaugural WHA season. With that move the Oilers became the Alberta Oilers and then became the Edmonton Oilers the following season.
The team became part of the NHL during the 1979 league merger that brought four WHA teams into the fold. After joining the NHL the Edmonton Oilers went on to build a dynasty with key players and went on to win five Stanley Cups in the span of seven seasons and because of this feat the team of the 1980s has been honored by the Hockey Hall of Fame with Dynasty Status.
The team colors are blue, orange and white and the team plays in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference.
A couple of the team players also hold NHL records including Wayne Gretzky (most goals in a season, most assists in a season, most points in a season) and Paul Coffey (most goals in a season for a defenseman).
There have been many great players to play for the Edmonton Oilers and to put together a short list is not easy. The top team players would include Wayne Gretzky (1979-1988), Mark Messier (1979-1991), Paul Coffey (1980-1987), Jari Kurri (1980-1990), Grant Fuhr (1981-1991), Glenn Anderson (1980-1996), Ryan Smith (1994-present), Kevin Lowe (1979-1998), Esa Tikkanen (1985-1993) and Doug Weight (1992-2001).
The Edmonton Oilers have won 5 Stanley Cups (1983-1984, 1984-1985, 1986-1987, 1987-1988, 1989-1990), 7 Conference Championships, 2 Presidents’ Trophies (1985-1986, 1986-1987) and 9 Division Championships.
