The 1999–2000 Edmonton Oilers season was the Oilers' 21st season in the NHL, and they were coming off a 33–37–12 record in 1998–99, earning their 3rd straight playoff appearance, however, they would be swept in the first round by the eventual Stanley Cup champions, the Dallas Stars.

The Oilers would not bring back head coach Ron Low, who had been with the team since 1995, and hire former Oilers defenceman Kevin Lowe as his replacement. Lowe played with Edmonton from 1979–1992, and then again from 1996–1998, winning 5 cups with the team, and scored the first NHL goal in Oilers history.

Edmonton would see their win total drop to 32, however, they would earn 88 points, the teams highest point total since the Stanley Cup winning 1989–90 season, and qualify for the playoffs for the 4th straight season, finishing in 7th place in the Western Conference.

Offensively, newly named captain, Doug Weight, would rebound from his injury plagued 1998–99 season, and lead the club with 51 assists and 72 points. Ryan Smyth would be the Oilers goal scoring leader with 28 goals. Alexander Selivanov would score 27 goals and 47 points in his first full season with the Oilers, while Bill Guerin would score 24 goals. Defenceman Roman Hamrlik would lead the blueline with 45 points, while 2nd year player Tom Poti would score 9 goals and earn 35 points. Sean Brown would once again lead the club in penalty minutes with 192.

In goal, Tommy Salo would get the bulk of the action, winning 27 games, while recording a GAA of 2.33, and earn 2 shutouts along the way.

The Oilers would open the playoffs against the Dallas Stars, and this would make the 4th straight season that these teams would face each other. The Stars finished in 2nd place in the Western Conference with 102 points, 14 points higher than the Oilers. The Stars would get a 2–0 series lead by winning both games in Dallas, however, the Oilers would cut the lead in half with a solid 5–2 victory in game 3 at Skyreach Centre. Dallas would win game 4 by a 3–1 score, then finish off the series in game 5 at Dallas, ending the Oilers season for the 3rd year in a row.
