The 2019-20 Edmonton Oilers season was the 41st season for the National Hockey League (NHL) franchise that was established on June 22, 1979,[1] and 48th season including their play in the World Hockey Association (WHA).

The season was suspended by the league officials on March 12, 2020, after several other professional and collegiate sports organizations followed suit as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.[2][3] On May 26, the NHL regular season was officially declared over with the remaining games being cancelled.[4] The Oilers advanced to the playoffs for the first time since the 2016-17 season and lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in four games in the qualifying round.[5]

The season also saw one of their roster players, Colby Cave die after suffering a brain bleed due to a colloid cyst after being in a coma for four days.[6][7]

Regular season

The Oilers started their season with a 3-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks on October 2.[8] The Oilers had a 5-game winning streak, where they came back in all those games, that set an NHL record.[9]
