The Oilers Rig Radio returns with a special edition! This edition of the podcast was recorded live on location at Brewsters during the Oilers Rig Live For MS event on Saturday, February 21st. The event helped raise $3,300 for MS research, and was an all around really fun night for everyone who attended.
Dave Gordon and I talk about Rob Klinkhammer and Ryan Hamilton re-signing, the latest in the Jeff Petry rumors, and much more in this podcast, while also catching up with an all-star cast of guests. I caught up with Sportsnet’s Gene Principe, while Dave caught up with Alison Hagan from the MS Society, Matt Henderson of hockeybuzz and Avry from Avry’s Sports Show.
