How Well Do You Know Your Edmonton Oilers’ 1990s History?

The Edmonton Oilers have a great history. How well do you know the team’s history in the 1990s? Test your knowledge.

During the 1980s, the Edmonton Oilers were one of the greatest teams in the history of the NHL – a dynasty. That changed in the 1990s. While the team had some good players, they didn’t put it all together again until Connor McDavid came on the scene many years later.
