Edmonton Oilers centre Reid Petryk will slot in tonight for his first game action in an Oilers sweater.
Petryk, a rookie camp invite, will have extra motivation to perform tonight in front of a home crowd.
“It’s definitely a lifelong dream of mine,” said the Edmonton native. “There’s going to be a lot of family and friends out here tonight for me so I am pretty excited.”
Petryk replaces the Oilers 2012 3rd round pick, Jujhar Khaira, in the lineup tonight and will center Kyle Platzer and Kale Kessy.
