The Edmonton Oilers have a winning streak going. Well, they have won two in a row and in Oil Country that qualifies as a streak.

The Oilers’ 4-2 win Monday night over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena marks just the fourth time this season Edmonton has managed to string together back-to-back victories.

And to beat Vancouver for the first time in four tries this season, the Oilers got a big contribution from a guy the Canucks wish they had selected back in the 2007 draft.

David Perron scored three goals for the Oilers. For those who have forgotten -- and the Canuck organization would certainly like to forget -- Perron went 26th overall in that 2007 draft.

The Canucks, picking 25th, went off the charts to take centre Patrick White.

Perron has a team-high 22 goals for the Oilers this season. White was last seen playing the 2012-13 season for a minor league team in Hanover, Germany.

The hat trick was Perron’s second in the NHL. Both have come against the Canucks. But Perron insists he is not trying to rub any salt in old Canuck draft wounds.
