The 2011–12 Edmonton Oilers season was the 33rd season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 22, 1979,[1] and 40th season including their play in the World Hockey Association.

The Oilers failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs, the sixth time in a row since they went to the playoffs in the 2005–06 NHL season.

The Edmonton Oilers drafted first overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, and chose Red Deer Rebels centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. With the 19th pick overall (obtained from the Los Angeles Kings in a trade for Dustin Penner) the Oilers chose defenceman Oscar Klefbom.
