The 2004–05 Edmonton Oilers season would have been the Oilers' 26th season in the NHL, however, the 2004–05 NHL lockout, which began a day after the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, cancelled the entire season.

Edmonton Roadrunners[edit | edit source]

With the NHL season wiped out, the Oilers would move their AHL team, the Toronto Roadrunners, to Edmonton, rename the club the Edmonton Roadrunners, and they played out of Rexall Place. The Roadrunners would finish with the 3rd highest attendance figure in the league, averaging 8854 fans per game.
