The 1982–83 Edmonton Oilers season was the Oilers' 4th season in the NHL, their 2nd straight season of finishing with over 100 points, and they won the Smythe Division for the 2nd straight season. The Oilers would break the NHL record for goals in a season with 424, breaking the record they previously set in the previous season.

Regular seasonEdit

Wayne Gretzky had another amazing season, scoring 71 goals, while earning an NHL record 125 assists to finish the year with 196 points, winning his 4th Hart Trophy and his 3rd Art Ross Trophy. The Oilers would tie the Boston Bruins' 1971 record of four 100—point scorers, as Gretzky, Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson and Jari Kurri would each pass the 100 point plateau during the season.

Andy Moog would step it up as the Oilers #1 goaltender, winning a team record 33 games, while posting a team best 3.53 GAA.
