Taylor Fedun - a player to watch

Tonight the Oilers play the Minnesota Wild in their second last pre-season game of the year. This originally wasn’t supposed to be webcast, but looks like the Oilers have done as a favor and fixed that.

Tonight, I’ll be at the Oil Kings opener, so I’ll miss this one. You folks will have to fill me in later.

Players I have had an interest in this pre-season as being on the cusp of making the team (other than the usual suspects, including Hartikainen and Omark): Lennart Petrell and Taylor Fedun.

The original "The Nuge"

The original "The Nuge"

Tonight is an exciting night for “the Nuge”. It was originally reported that he was playing with Hemsky and Smyth tonight, but it turns out he’ll be playing with what is possibly going to be the line of the Oilers future one day. The bookends for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tonight will be none other than Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. This should make for a very exciting, dynamic trio. It would seem that RNH is a very responsible forward. I think Taylor Hall has a tendency to try to back check hard as well too.
