Yes, we missed last week in recapping the top tweets from Oil Country. Sometimes life just simply gets in the way. A lot has happened so let’s check in our favorite Oilers’ players and personnel and highlight the top tweets.
Many changes have taken place surrounding the Oilers in the last couple of weeks including a trade that saw Magnus Paajarvi traded to the St. Louis Blues. The 22-year old took to Twitter to thank the fans of Edmonton and admits he was caught off guard by the news.

Forward Ryan Jones signed a new one-year deal with the Oilers and it’s easy to tell that he’s excited to be back. Based on the pic, I’m not sure who’s more excited about his new deal, Ryan or Joey.

And finally, this pic has been all over Twitter, the news and every Oilers outlet possible. When the news broke that the Oilers had signed Edmonton native Andrew Ference, he posted this pic of himself as a young boy making it clear who he cheered for while growing up. Now that is a classic shirt. Welcome to Edmonton Andrew.
