The Edmonton Oilers rookies lace up the skates against the Vancouver Canucks group tonight in Penticton at the Young Stars Tournament. Oklahoma City Barons Head Coach Todd Nelson is the bench boss for the Oilers tonight and he gave some insight as to what the lineup will look like.
On the ice at practice the lines were as follows:
The defensive pairings were:
Sitting out tonight will be Winquist, Ewanyk, Krushelnyski and Platzer. All four will rotate into the lineup tomorrow night. Ludwig, Betker and Craig are out defensively.
Laurent Brossoit gets the start in net tonight.
Another lineup note is expect Nurse and Gernat to see more time on the power play while the pairing of Boland and Musil will see more time on the penalty kill.
