Oilers Update - Ralph Kreuger

Ralph Kreuger becomes the new Head Coach for the Edmonton Oilers.  GM Steve Tambellini announced that 52 year-old native of Winnipeg will take over the vacant spot for Tom Renney. 

Kreuger spent the last 2 seasons with the club as an associate coach and will finally get his chance to coach in big leagues.  Before joining the Oilers, Kreuger has been coaching the Swiss National squad between 1998 to the 2010.

"I know how much potential I feel there is in Edmonton.  I don't think there's any question there's a big upside.  It's there.  But it's going to take a lot of hard work in the next while to there." said Krueger in an interview with the Edmonton Sun.

Krueger becomes the 11th coach to serve the Oilers under the NHL.
