As the Edmonton Oilers eagerly await their return to action in October, a heartwarming story has emerged that has captured the attention of fans far and wide.

A New Fan in the Making

Despite not having hit the ice for the Oilers just yet, Connor Brown has already secured a special spot in the hearts of Oilers supporters. This past week, the Oilers gained a pint-sized devotee, none other than Brown's own newborn son, Nolan.

A Picture of Family Delight

While the hockey season may be a few weeks away, Connor Brown and his wife Madison found a reason to celebrate at home. The couple shared a heartwarming snapshot from a warm and cozy welcome party for their adorable family of three.

Teammates' Cheers and Congratulations

Former teammate Dylan Strome couldn't help but speculate about the future of the little Oilers fan: "Can only imagine this kid's work ethic in the future. Elite," he commented. Joining in the chorus of congratulations, former Oiler Tyson Barrie shared his excitement, adding, "Congrats, you beauty's!!" Mitch Marner and others even commented....


From Tough Times to a Fresh Start

For Connor Brown, the past year brought its challenges. A knee injury early in the last season put a halt to his time with the Washington Capitals, forcing him to sit out the rest of the games. But with a new chapter ahead, Brown signed a one-year contract worth $4 million with the Oilers in July, eager to bounce back.

Looking back to his junior days, Brown and Oilers' captain Connor McDavid formed a dynamic duo on the ice. Their partnership flourished during their time with the Erie Otters, where Brown's performance was nothing short of impressive. In the 2013-14 season, he racked up a staggering 45 goals and 83 assists, amassing a total of 128 points.

A Player with a Proven Track Record

Brown brings valuable experience to the Oilers, having played a total of eight seasons in the NHL across different teams. His journey includes stints with the Washington Capitals, Toronto, and Ottawa, accumulating a combined total of 90 goals and 126 assists in 448 games.

As the Oilers gear up for the upcoming season, the Oilers' community is abuzz with a heartwarming story. The addition of Connor Brown's newborn son, Nolan, to the ranks of Oilers fans adds a touch of warmth and excitement to the anticipation of the games to come.
