Oilers' projected lineup vs. Kings

Tuesday, 02.19.2013 / 1:42 PM

The Edmonton Oilers skated Tuesday morning ahead of their game against the Los Angeles Kings at Rexall Place.

They had set forward lines, but rotated all seven defensemen, making the lineup a bit of a guessing game. And that didn't include Theo Peckham, who has been recalled from Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League.

Here is the lineup the Oilers could use Tuesday, with defense pairings that could change by game time:

Taylor Hall - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle

Teemu Hartikainen - Sam Gagner - Ales Hemsky

Ryan Smyth - Eric Belanger - Nail Yakupov

Ben Eager - Chris VandeVelde - Magnus Paajarvi

Nick Schultz - Justin Schultz

Ryan Whitney - Jeff Petry

Ladislav Smid - Mark Fistric

Nikolai Khabibulin

Devan Dubnyk

Scratched: Lennart Petrell, Theo Peckham, Corey Potter

Injured: Ryan Jones, Shawn Horcoff, Anton Lander

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
