The Oilers begin their 2022-23 campaign at home against their division rival. Can the Oilers get ahead early? Will the Canucks be a roadblock? Let’s get to it.


  • Connor McDavid scored a boatload of points last season, he’ll look to score a boatload of points this season as well. The four time Art Ross winner led the league with 123 points in 2021-22, he’ll look to get off to a hot start tonight against the Canucks.
  • Dylan Holloway will start on the second line with Leon Draisaitl and Zach Hyman. Holloway had a beauty of a preseason, and he’ll look to carry that into the first game of the regular season on a line with two very talented linemates.
  • It’s the first regular season game for new Oilers goaltender Jack Campbell. Campbell put together a stellar win-loss record with the Maple Leafs in 2021-22, he’ll look to make a big debut with his new club tonight.

The Oilers look to put the Canucks on notice early. Can they pick up two points in their season debut tonight?
