The Oilers are back in action tonight for more preseason action as they take on Vancouver. This time, it’s from the comfy confines of Rogers Place. Let’s go to the tape.


  • Tomas Jurco gets another shot in tonight’s top six, teaming up with Cooper Marody and Alex Chiasson on line two. He’ll try to make his claim to make the 23-man roster after a two point performance Tuesday in Vancouver.
  • Mikko Koskinen will make his preseason debut tonight as he splits time with Shane Starrett. Koskinen had flashes of brilliance last season, the Oilers will need more than flashes in 2019-20.
  • With a possible two defence spots up for grabs, which players other than Oscar Klefbom and Matt Benning will take the reins? Could we see Caleb Jones take a step? Is Joel Persson a safe bet?
