Oilers Flasher Stays Silent In July; Have 15 Minutes Of Fame Expired?

It's been two weeks, maybe three, since we've heard from Edmonton Oilers flasher Kait Flynn. It makes you wonder if we haven't heard the last of the female who went viral during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Granted, the NHL season is over and there's no reason for Flynn to continue to post pics of herself on social media when the idea is promoting hockey. But the Oilers have made some moves since the end of the season and Flynn could be using all of them to keep riding the wave of (temporary) fame. She has decided not to.

For starters, after posing for Playboy, Flynn has returned to her regular job.

She is believed to work for a company that provides solutions for oilfield hauling in Alberta.

"The Oilers' most infamous fan is back at work after inking a Playboy deal off the back of her viral success," wrote the Daily Mail. "Kait Flynn took to Instagram on Wednesday following Edmonton's Stanley Cup loss to the Florida Panthers, sharing a pic of herself heading to work in the oil fields."

She captioned the snap, "Happy hump day."

The Oilers' most famous fan "switched her Oilers jersey for a graphic tee," the Daily Mail wrote. "She also rocked a pair of unzipped overalls and added a trucker hat, as she styled her hair in two braids."

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 trophy.

"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!"
