The 1993–94 Edmonton Oilers season was the Oilers' 15th season in the NHL, and they were coming off their worst season in team history in 1992–93, finishing with only 60 points and failing to qualify for the playoffs for the first time.

During the off-season, the NHL announced it would be renaming the divisions and conferences, and the Oilers would be placed in the newly created Pacific Division in the Western Conference, along with their Battle of Alberta rivals, the Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks, and the expansion Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

Edmonton would get off to a horrible start, starting the year 3–18–3, before head coach Ted Green was fired and replaced by Glen Sather for the remainder of the season. The Oilers would play much better under Sather, but still fail to qualify for the playoffs for the 2nd straight season, finishing 18 points behind the 8th seeded San Jose Sharks. During the season, Edmonton would once again trade veteran players for youngsters, as team captain Craig MacTavish was dealt to the New York Rangers for Todd Marchant, while Dave Manson was shipped to the Winnipeg Jets for Boris Mironov.

Offensively, Doug Weight would lead the club with 74 points, while 19 year old rookie Jason Arnott would score a team high 33 goals, and finish just behind Weight with 68 points. Shayne Corson and Zdeno Ciger would each score over 20 goals, with 25 and 22 respectively. Igor Kravchuk would lead the Oilers blueline with 12 goals and 50 points, while Bob Beers would put together a solid season on defense, scoring 10 goals and 37 points. Kelly Buchberger would be the team leader in penalty minutes, accumulating 199.

In goal, Bill Ranford would appear in a career high 71 games, winning 22 of them, with a 3.48 GAA and 1 shutout. Rookie Fred Brathwaite would back him up, appearing in 19 games, and winning 3 of them.
