The Edmonton Oilers have long been one of the most successful hockey teams in all of the NHL.

The Oilers played their first season in 1972 as the Alberta Oilers. They were originally members of the WHA, but merged with the NHL for the 1979-1980 season, and won their first Stanley Cup Finals in 1984. They have won a total of five NHL Championships in the years since joining the biggest professional hockey league in the world.

A large part of the early success that the Oilers saw was thanks to the phenomenal Wayne Gretzky, who played with the team from 1978 until 1988. Gretzky helped lead the team to four Stanley Cup Championships before he left to go to the Los Angeles Kings. Gretzky had such an impact on the NHL that after he retired from hockey with the New York Rangers that his number was retired across the entire National Hockey League. The Oilers owe much of their success and popularity to him, but certainly not all of it. In fact, the Oilers have won several Conference and Division championships in the years since then. They continue to be successful, and many great players currently skate for the team. Whether they go on to the Pro Hockey Hall of Fame is another question, but the team is certainly an exciting team to watch regardless.
