Oilers(3-1-1) are hosting the Jets(1-2-2) who have recently returned to the NHL, rising from the ashes of Atlanta like a Phoenix! Which is where their previous team now resides…
Oilers have also trimmed the following from the roster:
Richard Bachman* (G) – Oklahoma City (AHL) aka Stephen King
Brad Hunt (D) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Jujhar Khaira (LW) – Everett (WHL)
Oscar Klefbom (D) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Martin Marincin (D) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Ryan Martindale (C) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Andrew Miller (C) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Ty Rimmer (G) – Oklahoma City (AHL)
Sam Gagner (G) – IR (Thanks Kassian…)
OKC might do well this year as some of these names did fairly well in camp.
Enough small talk, time for game talk.
The Jets took an early pre-season game 3-2 in the peg. Oilers fought back in the last 5 to make it interesting but ultimately fell short. They took it to the Canucks recently and scored early, so hopefully they stay on the same page and grab the lead first. Makes the wins that much easier. The monster in the closet MacIntyre was claimed off waivers today, but won’t be in the line up. Looks like a number of bubble players are getting a look on both sides of the ice tonight, so more of a teaser of the future prospects than an actual look at the upcoming season.
