Days Until The First Oilers Game: 38 – Jeff Deslauriers
Today’s Player: Jeff “don’t call me Drouin” Deslauriers.
Career Oilers Stats:
Imagine having a GAA of 3.30 and a S% over 0.900? Oilers.
Why We Liked Him:
I met JDD at a Buckcherry concert in St. Vegas. Nice guy. Was fired up when “Crazy Bitch” came on.
Why We Didn’t Like Him:
Here’s Mason Raymond taking a fortnight to shoot the puck before scoring a goal on a wrister from Jupiter that put us down 3-0 in the first:
Steady Steve providing one helluva screen in front of our own goalie during the weeks that play took to develop. Meanwhile, our penalty killing forwards were changing with the puck in our zone. The goddamn Oilers.
Also, his last NHL win came against the Oilers. Of course it did.
Where Is He Now?
Like many former Oilers, JDD is now playing for a team you’ve never heard of. The Augsburger Panther (singular) of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga.
