cbc edmonton logoI joined host Alicia Asquith on the CBC Edmonton News for my weekly segment to discuss all things Oilers. Clip is here and starts at the 16:10 mark: CBC Edmonton News (2018, December 6)

Topics we covered:

  • Re-cap of last night’s game against the Blues, what went well and what the challenges were.
  • The Oilers goal-scoring problems, as they currently rank 26th in the league when it comes to total goals and 29th in terms of goals per 60 at even-strength (5v5).

  • Klefbom’s performance so far this season and his improved play compared to last year. I also touched on how Klefbom takes a lot of shots from low probability scoring areas and how it might be hurting the rest of the team’s offensive production.

  • Upcoming games at home against Minnesota and Calgary – two teams who are top-10 in the league when it comes to points percentage.
