The most iconic Oilers fan in the league is still the old ceiling fans, which the Oilers used for the home opener last season.
Now, fans can bring the ceiling fans back.
As part of the Oilers’ annual Christmas Eve festivities, the Oilers will display the old fans on the ice for the first time on Dec. 25.
“It’s a great way to celebrate the occasion of our 25th anniversary and the fans, as well,” said Oilers executive vice president of hockey operations, Joe Sakic.
The Oilers also will display a new and improved version of the ceiling fan for the next season, a custom model created by Canadian manufacturer and design house Conexus.
“This is a brand-new model that was created with the Edmonton Oilers,” Sakic said.
The new model comes in a variety of colors and has an LED lighting system that is more accurate to the original, Sakic added.
“The fan is designed to reflect light on the face of the ice.
The lighting system and lighting technology are accurate to what is seen on the game ice.”
Sakic also confirmed the new ceiling fans will not be able to be used during the 2017-18 season.
Fans can pick up a Coneusis ceiling fan at the Coneuses website for $2,500.
The company has also created a Conesxus-branded wall-mounted wall-mount system, which will be available for $999.
The ceiling fans are also available for purchase on the Conesus website for about $400.
The team will also donate a C.D.C. sectional plaque to the fan’s home rink at Rexall Place.
Fans will be able sign up to receive a plaque when the season starts.
“These fans have a special place in our hearts,” Sakick said.
“They represent what it means to be an Oilers fan.
They’re a special, special fan and I know that our fans will remember the occasion and the memory of Christmas Eve.”
The Oilers will also display the ceiling Fans in the team’s new training room, which is currently under construction.
The arena was originally built in 1968, but the Oilers changed its name to Edmonton Oilers Memorial Auditorium in 2015.
Sakick noted the new sectional plaques are a big deal for fans who attended the team during its infancy.
“When we opened, the arena was underutilized,” Sakik said.
“It was used for concerts, for exhibitions and events.
I don’t think we were as used to having fans in there.
We felt that we needed a sectional to give them something to remember the night before.”
Conesxus is headquartered in Canada.
