Matthew Tkachuk hilariously trolls the Edmonton Oilers with the most unexpected shoutout to the Calgary Flames

Matthew Tkachuk is a Stanley Cup Champion!

He was a great player when he played with the Calgary Flames but has been a perfect fit in Paul Maurice’s Florida.

After losing the Finals against the Vegas Golden Knights last year, he helped the Panthers to the organization’s first-ever Championship on Monday in a thrilling Game 7 against the Edmonton Oilers.

The Panthers had a 3-0 series lead over the Oilers, but after a remarkable shift in momentum, it was all decided in a Game 7, as the Oilers looked to become the first team since 1942 to win the Cup after losing the first three games of the Final series.

But Tkachuk and the Panthers weren’t going to let that happen. Tkachuk, who had 88 points through 80 games in the regular season, has been one of the Panthers’ key factors behind this year’s success.

He’s not just a skilled player; he also plays hard and with a lot of intensity.

Postgame, he was, understandingly, thrilled, but it also didn’t take long for him to troll the Oilers.

In an interview with ESPN not long after the final buzzer sounded, Tkachuk gave a shoutout to his former team, the Calgary Flames.

He started talking about how he has family everywhere and how everyone supports him. 

”Shoutout to all of them. Shoutout to my fans in Calgary, you know I couldn’t let Edmonton win,” he said.

Of course, Tkachuk’s hilarious words about Edmonton went viral, with some calling him a ’generational hater.’

”I respect the hate, ngl,” one Edmonton Oilers fan said.

”Who would’ve thought that Florida would win the battle of Alberta,” another said.

”The biggest troll lol,” a third added.
