Can you believe Warren Moody, the vice principal at Gibbons School, isn't an Oilers fan?
Susan Johnson's Grade 6 class decided they had to do something about it.
On the day of the home opener, the students all dressed up in Oilers' jerseys and orange attire. When he walked into their class, the students began chanting "welcome to oil country" and "let's go Oilers."
"He was pretty surprised and shocked," said student Cohen Currie. "It just felt really exciting."
Currie added that they did their best to convert him into an Oilers fan, but they aren't completely sure it worked.
"We were hoping so. He might have, but I think he still likes Colorado (Avalanche) more."
