Separating McDavid, Draisaitl necessary for Oilers’ long-term success

  Separating McDavid, Draisaitl necessary for Oilers’ long-term success It’s no longer a question, or a topic of discussion inside the dressing room. For the Edmonton Oilers to get where they’ve been trying to go for years, Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl have to play on separate lines.

Condors 0, Reign 3

With Edmonton Oilers on their mid-season hiatus for the next week or so, it seems as good a time as any to get caught up on the organization’s top farm club, the AHL’s Bakersfield Condors. Monday is usually a dark day in the American Hockey League, but a few exceptions were made today on Martin Luther King Day. Among them, the Condors played a key divisional clash at Ontario, CA (meaning California, not Canada!) in a game that featured the return to action of Matt Benning, sent to Bako on a conditioning assignment after not finishing a game for over two months. He was joined stateside by William Lagesson, reassigned to get some playing time during the break, and to make room on Edmonton’s active roster for Benning, who must occupy a spot on the 23-man list while he plays his own way back into shape.

  Brad Jacobs has Draw 1 win over Glenn Howard at triple-knockout Canadian Cup YORKTON, Sask. — Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., beat Glenn Howard of Penetanguishene, Ont., 7-5 in the marquee matchup of the opening draw of the Canadian Cup on Tuesday, the fourth event and third major on the Grand Slam of Curling circuit. The Canadian Open has a unique structure on the tour with triple knockout for preliminary play.

Trailing 3-0 midway through the second period, the Reign score four goals in under three minutes to rally and defeat the Bakersfield Condors 5-4 on Opening

The Condors and Reign game erupted into a full line brawl, including goaltenders on Saturday night. Kevin Bartl and Ryan Holt on the call.

The Condors entered the game just two points behind the fourth-place Reign in the AHL’s version of the Pacific Division and with two games in hand. However, Bako was also riding a three-game losing streak, all at home, all in regulation, as they had failed to build on what had been a good start to 2020.

Make it four straight losses in the last seven days as the Condors were whitewashed 3-0 by a red-hot Cal Petersen in the Ontario cage, who turned aside 33 Bakersfield shots to earn the shutout. Stuart Skinner had a strong game in the Condors cage but was undone by a trio of powerplay goals as his mates could neither stay out of the sin bin nor get the job done while shorthanded.

It was a hard-hitting, at times dirty affair that featured a number of heavy hits and plenty of after-the-whistle altercations. Three of them resulted in the departure of Bakersfield veterans, notably Brandon Manning who received a game misconduct six minutes into the second period after an altercation with abrasive winger Bokondji Imama, who spent much of the night getting under the skin of various Condors. Manning took the bait, and according to the official gamesheet was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct under AHL Rule 75.5(ii), which states:

Jacobs, Koe, Gushue all one win away from advancing at Canadian Open

  Jacobs, Koe, Gushue all one win away from advancing at Canadian Open YORKTON, Sask. — Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., is one of four skips looking to advance at the Canadian Open. Jacobs downed Switzerland's Yannick Schwaller 7-3 on Thursday to lock up a spot in one-of-two A Finals at the fourth event and third major on the Grand Slam of Curling circuit. He found out who his opponent would be in the evening draw, when American Korey Dropkin toppled Regina' Matt Dunstone 5-4 to set up a match with Jacobs. Brad Gushue of St. John's, N.L., will face Calgary's Kevin Koe in the other A Final.All four skips are 2-0.The Canadian Open has a unique structure with triple knockout for preliminary play.

The Ontario Reign scored a season-high eight goals on their way to an 8-3 win over the Bakersfield Condors in front of a crowd of 6,901 on Wednesday, Apr.

Ominous overtones to that whole situation, especially given Imama’s African heritage (his parents immigrated to Montreal from Democratic Republic of Congo) though it’s premature to jump to conclusions beyond the above facts. Stay tuned.

A second vet to get the heave-ho was Brad Malone , whose frustration boiled over in the late going after a tough night. Malone missed two sitters from inside the blue paint, moreover took a careless neutral zone penalty moments after Ontario’s opened the scoring late in the first, leading to a second powerplay goal just 70 seconds after the first. The score remained 2-0 for two full periods until Malone took a needless shot at an opponent with 2½ minutes to play with the Condors already down a man. He then took a second, coincidental minor for roughing it up with Matt Luff, and a 10-minute misconduct for continuing the altercation. With Malone in the showers and his proxy serving his penalty, the Ontario powerplay struck yet a third time with 75 seconds to play to secure the final margin of victory.

Edmonton Oilers make sound move in assigning Matt Benning to Bakersfield on conditioning stint

  Edmonton Oilers make sound move in assigning Matt Benning to Bakersfield on conditioning stint The Edmonton Oilers have sent Matt Benning down to the Bakersfield Condors of the American Hockey League on a conditioning stint. My take Sound move. It certainly worked out much better for Andrej Sekera in 2018-19 when he got sent to the AHL for a five game conditioning stint, than it did for him in 2017-18 when he was cannon blasted right into NHL action after missing half the season. Sekera got eaten alive coming in cold like that. The five AHL games in 2019 gave Sekera time to get his game together and he played well for Edmonton in a bottom pairing role. Sekera is now also playing well for the Dallas Stars in a Top 4 role.

Yet a third vet, Keegan Lowe , also got an early shower when he took a coincidental minor for another after-the-whistle set-to, this one with Martin Frk after the 3-0 goal was scored with under two minutes to play. Manning, Malone, Lowe — three old school players who didn’t back down, even as their array of penalties (one tripping penalty, four roughing infractions, two misconducts) did not help the cause in the least.

In fairness, the Reign did not play like angels, but are no doubt well pleased with their special teams which converted 3 of 5 powerplay chances while killing all 4 of their own penalties. After-the-whistle shenanigans notwithstanding, it was the play of special teams when the puck was in play that was the real difference in this one.

With the influx of two defenders from Edmonton, the Condors had dressed seven blueliners, with Logan Day taking shifts on right wing before dropping back to fill in for Manning. (Dmitri Samorukov drew the short straw and did not dress.) The line-up that started the game looked like this:

Tyler Benson – Markus Granlund – Josh Currie

Oilers' farmhand Brandon Manning suspended 5 games by AHL for racial slur

  Oilers' farmhand Brandon Manning suspended 5 games by AHL for racial slur It was clear something was amiss right from the moment it happened. Midway through yesterday afternoon’s game between Bakersfield Condors and Ontario Reign, AHL farm clubs of Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings respectively, an altercation took place between Brandon Manning of Bakersfield and Bokondji Imama of the Reign. Both repaired to the penalty box with coincidental minors, then after a brief consultation between the officials Manning was summarily ejected from the game. Oilers fan and Oilogosphere commenter Milt “Unca Miltie” Hodgins was attending the game and had a front-row seat directly behind the penalty box: Pretty good seat.

A few players caught my eye throughout the game, not least of them being Matt Benning who showed few signs of rust in what was jyst his third career game at the AHL level. His big-league pedigree shone through in the form of first-rate puckhandling  and distribution featuring a number of sharp tape-to-tape passes. He let fly a hard one-timer  on the powerplay, his best of 3 shots on the night. Absolutely mashed Jaret Anderson-Dolan with a huge open-ice hit which had me going “yep, Matt Benning is back”. Next thing you knew, Benning himself was taking a stray (?) stick to the side of his already-battered melon to draw a penalty. Was also involved in the late-game scrum that saw him down and dirty on the ice against two opponents with his helmet dislodged, not exactly what one might want to see under the circumstances other than this: Matt Benning is a gamer, and that’s how he needs to play. At least he managed to stay out of the penalty box in the process.

Evan Bouchard had a strong first two periods before fading a little in the third. He made a fine backhand stretch pass to Josh Currie not 5 seconds into the game, and backed that up with a series of crisp handles and sharp passes in his own end of the ice. Time and again Bouchard turned defence to offence, jumping into the rush, most often occupying a centre lane and frequently with the puck on his stick. Twice in the early going he pulled up and fired from centre slot but missed the post. Minutes later he cleaned up a rebound in his own zone and jumped straight back into the rush (centre lane, again) but chose to feed it to the flank just outside the blueline. Made a fine play to control a loose puck in the neutral zone, retreat under a heavy forecheck before shaking the opponent and leading another rush up ice, drawing a checker while slipping a sharp backhand pass to the right winger to enable the zone entry. Beat his man one-on-one to walk off the right point and into the slot, then got a good look on the continuation seconds later only to again miss the net. Made a slick play to control a puck under heavy pressure along his own end wall, then slip a pass through to an open teammate in front of his own net. Fired a rocket from centre point that Peterson couldn’t hold, but Malone was unable to find the open net on the rebound. Showed his poise in an extended one-on-one against an opponent who had lost his stick, walking around the guy into the slot for a pass that just missed, then holding the puck and tantalizing the stickless opponent while choosing his nest passing lane. On the negative side he took the game’s first penalty for shoving an opponent into the boards, and the cross-checking minor cost the Condors the critical first goal. He was caught up ice and burned for a partial breakaway early in the third, and had a couple of whiffed passes in that same frame. Biggest issue was his scattergun shooting which resulted in a few wide shots and a couple more which couldn’t get through the traffic. At that he had 3 official shots on net to co-lead the team.

Edmonton Oilers looking at signing Zack Kassian, Riley Sheahan, Josh Archiblad and Joakim Nygard: NHL insider

  Edmonton Oilers looking at signing Zack Kassian, Riley Sheahan, Josh Archiblad and Joakim Nygard: NHL insider This in from Sportsnet’s top reporter Elliotte Friedman, following up on work done by Sportsnet columnist Mark Spector last week, the latest on Zack Kassian, Josh Archibald, Riley Sheahan and Joakim Nygard contract talks. “There’s common ground, but nothing is done until it is done,” Friedman said of the Kassian deal. “The Oilers will also investigate the possibility of extending Josh Archibald, Joakim Nygard and Riley Sheahan. These aren’t huge deals, but they’ve played roles in stabilizing their bottom six, which was caved-in last season. There are a few teams who like Archibald.

Team scoring leader Tyler Benson was among the five Condors with 3 shots. I was especially interested to see his shot attempts given his mysteriously low shooting percentage: just 8 goals on 90 shots this season (8.9%) after 15 tallies on 173 drives last year (8.7%). He was unable to cash on a one-timer from the bottom of the crease (good save) or a wrist shot from the left circle after Markus Granlund had fed him nicely (another good save). Made a lovely soft area pass to spring Granlund and Bouchard 2-on-1. Laid on a heavy hit on the forecheck at a time that the physical intensity of the game had really amped up. Excellent with the puck in tight spaces along the wall. Took a bad penalty that killed a late Bakersfield powerplay in its first minute, and with it their last real chance to make a game of it.  Once out of the box he took a run at Gabriel Vilardi, even as that opened up a passing lane that led an open shot and an open rebound which was cashed for the final goal.

If Markus Granlund he was sent to the minors to deliver a message, by all appearances he’s gotten it. He played like a man who wants to get on the NHL recall list sooner than later. Made one nifty feed to Benson on a 2-on-1, then on similar opportunity with Bouchard he did the curl-and-drag into great shooting position only to be robbed by Petersen. Better still was a splendid defensive stop where he read the developing play, got on his horse from the high slot and barely got to the danger man in time to lift his stick and prevent a Grade A+ one-timer from right in front.

Boko Imama: 'No excuse' for Brandon Manning's racial slur

  Boko Imama: 'No excuse' for Brandon Manning's racial slur Bokondji Imama is speaking out after Bakersfield Condors defenseman Brandon Manning directed a racial slur toward him during Monday's game. Imama, who plays for the Los Angeles Kings' AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign, issued a statement Wednesday after the AHL suspended Manning for five games on Tuesday. "I have taken some time to reflect on what transpired on the ice against Bakersfield on Monday night," Imama said. "What happened isImama, who plays for the Los Angeles Kings' AHL affiliate, the Ontario Reign, issued a statement Wednesday after the AHL suspended Manning for five games on Tuesday.

Finally netminder Stuart Skinner , who with help from his goalposts pitched a shutout at even strength only to be undone by the Reign powerplay. He was beaten short side by an (excellent) outside shot by sniper Martin Frk on the first Ontario powerplay, and the roof promptly caved in. Was unable to seal the bottom of the net on the next Ontario PP a minute later, and seconds after that just barely survived a flurry of activity that saw the netminder flopping all over his crease, though he regained his pins to make a strong blocker save on yet another golden chance seconds later. Kept Bakersfield in the game thereafter with a few big stops as Ontario created a few chances on the counterattack, but had no answer late when his teammates took leave of their positions and/or their senses, leading to a 5-on-3 powerplay and eventually the clincher seconds after Benson emerged from the box. That reduced the disadvantage to “just” 4-on-5, though a highly undisciplined one that left the goalie to deal with two point-blank shots, the second of which cashed.

It was far from a one-sided game, though score effects certainly played a role. Ontario outshot Bakersfield 14-6 in the first to forge that 2-0 lead; over the final 40 the shots were 27-18 Condors including a few point-blank chances — Malone, Benson, Granlund, Colby Cave, Joe Gambardella, Josh Currie, Jakob Stukel — but the only two that beat Petersen found iron.

It was that sort of frustrating night for the Condors (now 16-18-5 on the season) who will need a strong bounceback in the near future if they want to stay in the playoff conversation. Their current heavy run of games continues all week with contests Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.  We’ll check in on one or two of those and provide further reports on the play of other Oilers prospects.

Connor McDavid opens up on the scary medical decision he faced last spring .
After a late flight delayed his arrival at All-Star weekend in St. Louis, Edmonton Oilers’ megastar Connor McDavid met with the assembled media on Friday afternoon. Of course the questions on everyone’s lips were about the serious knee injury McDavid suffered in Game 82 last April. Details have been scarce until now, halfway through the following season. In a different universe, he’d still be recovering from surgery; in this one, McDavid is leading the NHL in scoring and thrilling fans from Edmonton to Everywhere in his customary fashion.
