Edmonton Oilers

Upcoming milestones for the Edmonton Oilers’ 2022–23 season

Outside of the age column, no statistic is a given to continue growing in the NHL. Goals, assists, points, games played, all statistics must be earned, that said a number of milestones are within reach for several Edmonton Oilers this season.

Time will tell if the Oilers will have the individual good fortune to achieve these marks, yet with any luck we might see a great deal of these reminders of how much we have all aged, symbolised by the milestone accomplishments.


Connor McDavid

  • 13 games to 500
  • 42 assists to 500
  • 3 points to 700, 103 points to 800

Scoring at over 100 points per season, it is a yearly occurrence for McDavid to reach such milestones in a given season.

Leon Draisaitl

  • 42 games to 600
  • 46 goals to 300
  • 38 assists to 400
  • 84 points to 700

46 goals and 84 points are nothing to sneeze at, but Draisaitl is well equipped to achieve both marks.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

  • 81 games to 800
  • 4 goals to 200

The more unlikely of the two is 81 games played, a near perfect attendance that would certainly be a welcome sight for Oilers fans.

Evander Kane

  • 14 goals to 300
  • 41 assists to 300

The goals mark is probable, while 41 assists would be a career-high for Kane. Though unlikely, alongside McDavid and Draisaitl, and well positioned to be the team’s tertiary offensive producer, such lofty heights are plausible.

Zach Hyman

  • 79 games to 500
  • 61 points to 300

Both marks could easily take another season to achieve, Hyman collected a career-high in goals (27) and points (54) last season. 

Jesse Puljujarvi

  • 41 games to 300
  • 4 goals to 50
  • 2 points to 100

Quite likely to reach these milestones, the bigger question appears to be whether Puljujarvi will do so as a member of the Oilers.

Kailer Yamamoto

  • 14 games to 200
  • 10 goals to 50
  • 7 points to 100

The young forward will achieve some meaningful milestones, reflecting the solid start to his career.  

Warren Foegele

  • 18 games to 300
  • 3 goals to 50
  • 3 assists to 50
  • 6 points to 100

Another trade candidate, perhaps, Foegele has kept his stats as consistent and even keeled as his game with near flat rates across goals, points, and games.  

Mattias Janmark

  • 8 assists to 100

Even in what is likely a fourth line role, Janmark should be able to reach this mark.

Ryan McLeod

  • 19 games to 100

While his overall impact on the game appears to have turned a corner, McLeod has done well to approach this mark. 


Darnell Nurse

  • 23 games to 500
  • 8 points to 200

Nurse has built a solid career for himself, and could look to double these marks by the time it is all said and done. 

Cody Ceci

  • 73 games to 700
  • 29 points to 200

This would constitute a strong season for Ceci, who will likely reprise his key role as Nurse’s partner. 

Tyson Barrie

  • 17 games to 700
  • 5 goals to 100

100 goals is meaningful for a defenceman, as is 700 games for any player. 

Brett Kulak

  • 66 games to 400

Despite seeming to come out of nowhere to shoot up the Oilers defence, Kulak has already built himself a significant resume with stops in Calgary and Montreal. 

Evan Bouchard

  • 16 assists to 50
  • 1 point to 50

It looks to be a big season for Evan Bouchard, who might even push to be the Oilers top defenceman by season’s end. 


Jack Campbell

  • 29 wins to 100
  • 1 shutout to 10

These aren’t quite enormous numbers for the recently signed UFA, who had a long road to the NHL. During his current five-year deal, we might see Campbell greatly increase these numbers as an Oiler, perhaps close to 300 wins and a lofty threshold of 30 shutouts, if all goes well.
