EDMONTON, AB - The Oilers are putting the final preparations in at practice Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's home opener against the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Place.

Head Coach Dave Tippett confirmed on Tuesday that Tomas Jurco will undergo a procedure that will keep him out for Wednesday's season opener. Joel Persson was on the ice, but Tippett believes the Swedish defender still has a ways to go before being cleared for contact and returning to game action.
