Day 9 - 8/27/15 - Connecticut Oilers
The Connecticut Oilers feature a team in the Premier Division of the Eastern Hockey League, coached by Eric Lind. Lind is the co-founder and General Manager of the Premier team, and this will be his 4th season behind the bench. Steven Brown is Lind's main assistant, and also serves as the Director of Organizational & Team Development for the Oilers. Last season the Oilers were one of the top teams in the EHL, playing to a record of 31-11-1-1, which was good 64 total points and a tie for 4th in the overall league standings.
The Oilers were also towards the top of the league in terms of their total number of college commitments. The team had 13 players sign their letters of intent last season, six heading to Division I schools, and seven going to Division III. The CT Oilers will look for another successful season during the 2015-'16 campaign.
