From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a complete list of players for the Edmonton Oilers of the World Hockey Association (WHA). It includes players that have played at least one regular season or playoff game for the Edmonton Oilers (or the Alberta Oilers, as they were known in their inaugural season) as a franchise in the World Hockey Association between 1972 and 1979.

A total of 130 skaters and 14 goalies played for the Oilers in the seven seasons between 1972–73 and 1978–79. Of those, 16 also played for the Oilers after they joined the National Hockey League for the 1979–80 NHL season.

Four ex-Oilers from the WHA era were later elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame: Jacques Plante (1978), Norm Ullman (1982), and Wayne Gretzky (1999) as players, and Glen Sather (1997) in the builder category.
