The stars of the Oilers
The great success of the Edmonton Oilers is likely connected to the large number of star players they have had over the years. Wayne Gretzky, considered by many as the greatest player in history, was a key player for the Oilers and joined the team at the beginning of the 1979-80 season. Becoming the team captain and holding an important position, Gretzky led the Oilers to four Stanley Cup victories in the '80s. Gretzky's skill has been said to have revolutionised the sport, with his impressive skill and speed as well as multiple awards and record-breaking scores. He became the first player to average more than two points per game in the season of 1980-81. Another star player in more recent times is Connor McDavid, who was drafted by the Oilers in 2015. McDavid was a top pick by the Oilers and was then considered to be one of the best players in the competition, going on to help the Oilers win 47 games ¬– one of the best performances from the team since the '80s.
