If you’re eagerly awaiting some hockey action, the Edmonton Oilers have some exciting news for you: the team’s preseason schedule for the 2024-25 NHL season has been released. For those who enjoy the anticipation and buildup of preseason games, this year’s lineup is particularly extensive.

The announcement of the Oilers’ preseason schedule brightened my day, although it comes with a caveat. We’ll have eight preseason games before the start of the regular season. While some may find this number a bit excessive, the extended preseason gives the team the opportunity to refine their skills and strategies.

In just over two months, the Oilers will be back on the ice, setting the stage for another exciting NHL season. Despite the lengthy preseason, the excitement of watching the team in action, even in exhibition games, is undeniable.

The preseason serves multiple purposes: it gives new players and prospects a chance to showcase their talents, helps the coaching staff finalize the roster, and gives fans a taste of what to expect in the upcoming season. While some may argue that eight games is too many, each game is a chance for players to hone their skills and build team chemistry.

As we count down the days until the first puck drop, the anticipation grows. The preseason may not be as weighty as regular season games, but it marks the beginning of a journey that fans have been waiting for since last season ended. It’s a time to evaluate new talent, check out returning stars, and get a feel for the team’s dynamic.

So while pre-season may seem like a marathon of games that don’t count toward the standings, it’s a crucial period for the development and preparation of the team. Plus, it’s hockey, and for Oilers fans, any hockey is better than no hockey.
