EDMONTON, AB - If you listen to Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan talk about his players, there's a recurring theme among those entering their second year with the club. He said it for Andrej Sekera entering last season, and he says it for Milan Lucic and Adam Larsson this year.
Puljujärvi said after the morning skate he wanted to have a better all-around performance in his second pre-season game, and he expressed a desire to shoot more and score. He finished the game with three points, including his first two goals of the exhibition season.
He was bumped up during the game to play on Connor McDavid's wing after starting with Jussi Jokinen and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
