The Edmonton Oilers had another milestone night with Connor McDavid reaching the 300th goal of his career, while Stuart Skinner set a new franchise record with 10 wins in a single month. Skinner's record-breaking win came with a shutout against the LA Kings, his first shutout of the season.

His performance was crucial in what is arguably the Oilers' biggest game of the season. After the game, coach Jay Woodcroft joked that Skinner won't be getting sent down like last time he got an NHL shutout.

Woodcroft also praised Skinner's maturity, saying that he made the big saves at the right time. This impressive night shows that the Oilers have both veteran and young talent to lead the team.

Stuart Skinner put up an incredible performance, making eight high danger saves, which is exactly what you want to see from your goaltender before the playoffs. With his impressive month, some are wondering if Skinner should be in the conversation for Rookie of the Year. This topic has been discussed on Oilersnation Radio and Oilersnation Everyday, but no Oiler has ever won the Calder Memorial Trophy. Although Skinner is building a strong case, it seems that Seattle Kraken rookie, Matty Beniers, is the current favorite for the award.
