Days Until The First Oilers Game: 34 – Fernando Pisani
Today’s Player: Fernando Pisani. Cue the music:
Career Oilers Stats:
Career Oilers Playoff Stats:
We’re scored 70 goals during that Cup run. Pisani had 20% of them. Was one of them in particular a big goal or something?
Why We Liked Him:
Before Patty Kane, there was Fernando Pisani. When my last breathe happens, I’ll remember few things vividly. One of those vivid memories will be knowing exactly where I was the second Fernando buried that overtime winning shorty against Carolina in game 5.
Why We Didn’t Like Him:
He had 14 goals in 24 playoff games during the Cup run. He never eclipsed the 14 goal plateau in a single season for the rest of his career.
Where Is He Now?
Like a good Edmonton kid, he’s coaching his son’s minor hockey team in St. Albert. He should never have to pay for anything in the capital city again.
