Oilers Flasher Jokes That She Should've Won Stanley Cup MVP Award

Now that the Edmonton Oilers flasher has been identified and signed with Playboy, she is showing no quit. Not only did she predict that the Oilers would win Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals from the shower (she was wrong), she is hailing herself as Cup MVP.

The award, known as the  Conn Smythe trophy, actually went to Oilers star Connor McDavid. But the flasher known as Kait Flynn may have deserved at least a share of it, in the eyes of some. She definitely helped bring notoriety to the NHL and the Oilers.

After the Oilers had lost, 2-1, to the Florida Panthers in Game 7, Kait was at it again.

It took place in her Instagram Stories, where she shared a slideshow of inspiring messages, including a mock reel in which NHL commissioner Gary Bettman awarded her the Conn Smythe.

"For the first time in NHL history, we are giving the award to a fan," an AI-generated clip of Bettman says. "The winner of the 2024 Conn Smythe trophy is Kait Flynn, otherwise known as 'Oilers Girl.' When the Oilers were down three to nothing in the Stanley Cup finals, she whipped out her jugs and sent this Edmonton team into a frenzy. Please, everyone, join me in congratulating Oilers Girl!"

Per the Toronto Sun:

"Along with the meme, Kait shared highlights from the hard-fought series and other words of wisdom following the heartbreaking loss, including a note urging followers to 'stay kind and keep loving life.'

"She also thanked the team for inspiring the city and a nation during the Oilers' incredible two-month long playoff run."

Say this month for Kait. She knows how to go viral and how to stay relevant. That much, we can be certain.
