The Edmonton Oilers continue to be in communication with Alberta Health about the possibility of welcoming fans back to Rogers Place, but will not put a timeline on when they expect to open its doors.

Reports surfaced over the weekend indicating that Oilers Entertainment Group, the company that owns the Oilers, had put forth a proposal for the return of a limited number of fans to games.

In a statement to Sportsnet, the team said it will not rush the process and will need to ensure public health measures and best practices related to COVID-19 are followed.
