The first round of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs is underway, and the Edmonton Oilers play their first game on Wednesday, May 19! Due to COVID-19 restrictions, fans cannot flock to the arena to watch in person, but Edmonton still provides plenty of other ways for fans to show their support and get excited. Get in the hockey spirit in Edmonton.
Show Support with Team Merch
Pose for a legendary photo next to the giant Stanley Cup Replica located outside United Cycle at 76th Avenue and Gateway Boulevard. While you’re there, pop into the store (or see if their pop-up drive-thru is available!) to browse an extensive selection of sporting equipment and apparel, including authentic NHL jerseys, Pride Tape, and everything you need to play the game yourself.
Jerseys, car flags, signed photos and equipment, headwear, memorabilia, and accessories are available at Pro Am Sports, and they even created alternate jerseys to honour the heritages of two Oilers Players, with name bars displaying Cree syllabics for Ethan Bear and Japanese characters for Kailer Yamamoto.
Order Game-Day Restaurant Deals
Several local restaurants promote food and drink deals on Oilers game days, making it delicious for absolutely anyone to participate. Sumo Sumo Sushi has two Hockey Day Combos, The Common has a burger & beer game-night combo, and Craft Beer Market offers various Game Day Team combos including wings, nachos, pizza, or burgers.
