Top Story: Edmonton's latest shiny new toy, Darnell Nurse will be on display for the first time, and he'll be accompanied by Oscar Klefbom, an older shiny toy. Calgary might have players competing for roster spots tonight.

The Oilers are saying:

"I'm real confident with what I've done this summer. I've put myself in a good position for the tournament"

--Nurse on the status of his game.

The Opponent is saying:

"Most everyone concedes Monahan is gone at least until Game No. 10 of the Calgary Flames season on Oct. 24, which is the same night the 67’s will play their 14th game in Peterborough."

--Don Campbell, on Sean Monahan staying in the NHL. What are the odds Nurse sees 9 games?
