The Edmonton Oilers joined the NHL in 1979 after spending their first seven seasons in the WHA. The Oilers had instant success after joining the NHL as they earned a postseason bid for 13 straight seasons. During this run, the Oilers won all eight of their division titles. The organization also won six of their seven conference championships in this span. The accolades continue for Edmonton as they earned two Presidents’ Trophies in back-to-back seasons (1985-1986 & 1986-1987). However, the stretch of dominance by the Oilers was highlighted with their five Stanley Cup titles during the 1980s. The Hockey Hall of Fame has honored this run of excellence by the Oilers as a dynasty. Edmonton won back-to-back titles twice in their five championships and the organization was led by all-time hockey greats Mark Messier and Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky leads the franchise with the most points, goals, and assists after spending a decade playing for the Oilers. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Edmonton Oilers hockey tickets.

Oilers vs. Flames
The Battle of Alberta is probably the biggest event of the year in the province, and there’s no love lost between fans and players of each team. It’s the capital vs. the largest city in the most popular sport in the country and Edmonton has had long stretches of dominance over their neighbor many times over the years.
Oilers vs. Kings
The first year these two clubs met in the playoffs was 1982, where the Oilers were heavily favored behind the NHL points champion Wayne Gretzky. The Kings went on to win Game 5 and the series in front of Edmonton’s home crowd, and then breaking Oiler fans hearts even more, Gretzky was traded to the Kings six years later. The rivalry becomes an intradivisional on in 2013 when the Oilers make the move over to the same division as the Kings.
Edmonton Oilers in the Stanley Cup, Western Conference Championship, and NHL Playoffs
The five time Stanley Cup Champion Edmonton Oilers must have felt pretty lucky when Wayne Gretzky fell in their lap, but they’ll certainly take it. The five Stanley Cups aren’t all, add another seven Western Conference Championships and twenty Playoff Appearances and you’re looking at hockey royalty.

Swiss Donair is not usually open for dinner on Wednesdays so be sure to check their hours before leaving.

Where is the best place to park at Northlands Coliseum?
There are 5 parking lots associated with Northlands Coliseum, all located on the north side of the arena. We recommend trying Lot H, or Lot E, as they are the two largest lots and have the best chance of finding a spot. Lots D, C, and B are the most convenient, but fill up fast so we recommend purchasing a parking pass, or arriving early if you want to park in one of these lots. If you are looking to skip driving and parking altogether, check out the Edmonton Transit LRT. It has a station in the area and is a convenient way to get to and from the arena.
Does my child need a ticket to go to an Oilers game?
Children who have not reached their 2nd birthday are allowed to enter Northlands Coliseum without a ticket and must sit in a guardians lap for the duration of the game. It is best practice to bring proof of your Child’s age with you to the gate to ensure they are allowed to enter the arena.
