Forward Jordan Eberle is fully on board with Head Coach, Dallas Eakins’ philosophy that the Oilers wish to shed the ‘Young Team’ label. Eberle is part of a youthful core that will no longer be seen as the new kids on the block.

It’s time to shed that label and turn positive projections to success.

“There comes a point when you’re sick and tired of hearing how good the young guys are going to be, how good you’re going to be,” said Eberle. “You just want to get to that point.

“I don’t want to say that I am getting older, but this is my fourth year and I’m getting to take on a leadership role on this team and want to be one of the core guys. I know we’re getting older and want to be a better team.”
