The 2006 Bakken Oilers had a successful inagural tournament finishing as runners-up at the North American Pepsi Cup in Fargo, ND. The newest addition and youngest team among all Bakken Oilers teams also has the most geographically diverse group of players. While several players are from Western North Dakota, others are from the Twin Cities area, Grand Forks, ND, Fargo and Manitoba, Canada. This group of young Bakken Oilers, coached by former UND Fighting Sioux player Jay Panzer, played well to make it to the championship game in their first tournament together. The rest of the Bakken Oilers organization will watch this group closely as they improve and are certain to have many successful seasons ahead of them.
