HAVE SOME OF THIS

  • It’s a rookie tournament, so take what happens with a grain of salt. That being said, you’re always hoping for more goals. The Oilers prospects scored a whopping zero goals against their provincial rivals in their first of two matchups. Can the Oilers light the lamp tonight?
  • THE BOUCH IS LOOSE - Evan Bouchard has a legitimate shot to make the big club out of camp this year. He’s paired with Dmitri Samorukov in tonight’s matchup.
  • CLASS OF 2019: Just one Oilers draft selection from 2019 (Raphael Lavoie, 2nd round) will appear in tonight’s contest.
  • NET GAINS: Expect a split performance between 2018 second round selection Olivier Rodirigue and a third round selection from 2017 in Stuart Skinner.
