The Oilers didn't have a traditional practice today as part of the team participated in fitness testing, part of rookie Head Coach Dallas Eakins' devotion to his team's conditioning.

The coach says he hasn't seen the results of the testing but, just from observing, the team appeared to be working hard.

"I haven't seen the results," said Eakins. "It looked like they were working hard but looks aren't the important things, it's the time. We had tested about half the team a week ago, on a day, and we had the other half today."

Boyd Gordon, Nick Schultz, Ryan Smyth, Ales Hemsky, Justin Schultz, Martin Marincin, Corey Potter, Nail Yakupov and Tyler Pitlick all participated in fitness testing.
