Edmonton Oilers is an ice hockey franchise that was formed in 1971 in response to the huge popularity of the sport in the area. At the time of its creation, the Oilers were members of the World Hockey Association. The other team to represent the region in the WHA were the Calgary Broncos. However, after the Broncos moved to Ohio, the Oilers changed their name to Alberta Oilers. The move was not a popular one and after a single season, the franchise switched its name back to Edmonton Oilers.
The Best in the West
The Oilers played in the WHA until it merged with the NHL in 1979. Edmonton Oilers thus joined three other clubs that were made a part of the NHL due to the merger. However, it remains the most successful one. The Oilers are placed in the Western Conference of the league and they play in the Pacific division.
The Dynastic Eighties
The Oilers achieved the peak of their success during the 80s when they went on to win the Stanley Cup five times. As a tribute to their success the Hockey Hall of Fame gave the Edmonton Oilers lineup of the decade the title of a ‘dynasty.’ Over all, the Oilers have won 7 Conference titles, 2 President Trophies and 9 Division titles, making it a part of a very elite group of the NHL franchises.
