The Edmonton Oilers are a Canadian hockey franchise that competes in the Pacific Division of the National Hockey League’s (NHL) Western Conference. Oilers live games are streamed through Canadian regional sports networks, which aren’t available on popular US streaming services. However, some games can be streamed through national broadcasts and NHL Network.
The Oilers have won the NHL’s grand prize, the Stanley Cup, on seven occasions, with the most recent victory coming in 2006. The franchise enjoyed its greatest success in the 1980s, when it had Wayne Gretzky, arguably the best hockey player of all time, on its roster. The Oilers won three consecutive Stanley Cups between 1983 and 1985, then three further championships in the next five years, in 1987, 1988, and 1990. Austin Matthews is the next great Oilers superstar who is expected to pick up where The Great One left off.
