Former Okotoks Oiler Dylan Holloway has proven his worth in helping Edmonton reach the final four of the Stanley Cup playoffs. 

The Edmonton Oilers are off to the NHL Western Conference Final after Holloway and the Oilers were able to win game seven against the Canucks on Monday (May 20) with a 3-2 victory.

Holloway was able to help the Oilers get on the board first with a secondary assist on the Cody Ceci opening goal. Edmonton would score all three of their goals in the second period and held on to win after giving up two goals to Vancouver in the final frame.

He was also able to get the Oilers going in the previous game scoring the first goal in the contest and his third of the playoffs so far. Holloway currently has 4 points in 12 games with Edmonton and has made his presence known on the ice being noticeable on almost every shift.

Sam Carrick was originally intended to be more involved with the Oilers after the trade deadline, sending Holloway to Bakersfield, but the team obviously likes what they see in him, having Holloway play in all of the Oiler playoff games so far.

The former Okotoks Oiler and his team will now take on the Dallas Stars to try and reach the Stanley Cup final for the first time since 2006 when the Oilers fell to the Carolina Hurricanes in seven games.

Game one for the Oilers and Stars is Thursday (May 22) and will be hosted by Dallas.
