The 2010–11 Edmonton Oilers season was the 32nd season of play for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 22, 1979,[1] and 39th season of play including their play in the World Hockey Association.

The Oilers posted a regular season record of 25 wins, 45 losses, and 12 overtime/shootout losses for 62 points and last place in the 30 team league, failing to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the fifth consecutive season.

A documentary on the season was produced for TSN titled Oil Change.
