Ready for hockey?  Of course you are, masochist.  After the Young Stars tournament but before the regular season, you've got a bevy of preseason games to dip your biscuits in.

The Oilers' preseason schedule was released today, and it goes a little something like this.

7 PM Monday September 26th:  Oilers vs. Flames - Split Squad

8 PM Wednesday September 28th:  Oilers @ Canucks

6 PM Friday September 30th:  Oilers @ Jets

TBD Sunday October 2nd:  Oilers @ Kings (from Lumley, BC)

7 PM October 4th:  Ducks @ Oilers

7 PM October 6th: Jets @ Oilers

7 PM October 8th:  Canucks @ Oilers

The Oilers open the regular season at Rogers Place on Wednesday, October 12th.

No doubt, there'll be a handful of stories to talk about this preseason.  Will the Oilers offer James Wisniewski a contract?  Will Jujhar Khaira push for a spot on the club? How about Drake Caggiula?  Griffin Reinhart?  Does Jonas Gustavsson make it to the first game of the season?  Should I invest in bottles, or cans?

Oilers hockey can't come soon enough.
