The Oilers are gearing up to make some significant changes to the organization, and it appears Ken Holland is not part of the long-term plans in Edmonton.

Reports Surface That Ken Holland Will Not Return After This Season in Edmonton



The Edmonton Oilers were expected to make a push for the Stanley Cup this season. With Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl coming to the end of their current contracts, the window of opportunity is quickly shutting in Edmonton.

This season has been an eye-opener for many on the Oilers, as they have nearly twiddled away any chances at making a run to the Cup. Now, it appears there are some big changes coming to the organization, as the new President Jeff Jackson has already had his hand in firing Head Coach Jay Woodcroft. It is hard to imagine him stopping there, as GM Ken Holland is in his last year as GM.


Emily confirms what many Oilers fans expected would happen. Holland is done at the end of the year and the Oilers are bracing for more changes after hiring Jeff Jackson. Expect a lot to change at the end of the season.


This isn't huge news for Oilers fans, since many expected Holland to retire or move into an advisory role with the club after this year. However, it does bring an eery feeling about the lack of success that the club has. Now, Jackson will be forced to reshape the organization in what was supposed to be the Oilers' prime time to win. This is a disappointment, to say the least.
