Oilers' anthem singer, Robert Clark, led attendees at the 2018 Pride of Strathcona Awards in the national anthem.
The Sherwood Park native became the official anthem singer for the team in 2013, and believes that led to his being asked to perform at the awards.
"It's been awesome," said Clark. "I love doing it, I love being able to sing for the Oilers and the Oilers' fans."
He employed the updated lyrics to the anthem in his performance, substituting "all our sons command" with "all of us command."
Clark lived in Sherwood Park throughout his youth, moved away for a few years, and then moved back. He said he loves the community.
In addition to his work as the official anthem singer for the Oilers, Clark has also performed with Edmonton Opera. He is a tenor. Clark is also a voice teacher, adjudicator, and father of four.
Clark is used to singing in-front of a biger crowd. Average attendance for Oilers' home games in the 2017/18 season was just above 18,000 people per game.
