Back in June the 84/85 Oilers were named the greatest NHL team EVER and they want to celebrate with you in February at Rogers Place! Here’s what’s happening, according to the Oilers website
“As part of the National Hockey League’s 2017 Centennial Celebrations, over 3.6 million ballots were cast by NHL fans in a vote to determine the “Greatest NHL Team of All Time.” The NHL announced in June the 1984-85 Edmonton Oilers team were the recipient of that historic honour.
In recognition of this significant distinction, a very special event will take place at Rogers Place on Sunday, February 11, 2018. Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier and their 1984-85 teammates will host an intimate and interactive evening of storytelling and unique multi-media vignettes that will recount their journey to legendary status atop the list of greatest teams in NHL history.”
