OILERS: After an 8-2 win over the Canucks in their first game, the Oilers took down Calgary 6-3 on Saturday night in comeback fashion. Leon Draisaitl gave the Oilers their first lead of the night in the third period with a penalty shot. That proved to be the game-winning goal. Draisaitl (2-2-4) and Josh Winquist (3-1-4) are tied for the team lead in scoring. Braden Christoffer (2-1-3), Kyle Platzer (1-2-3) and Joey LaLeggia (1-2-3) all have three points this tournament.

Draisaitl and Connor McDavid are among the names not expected to suit up against the Jets.

Eetu Laurikainen is expected to start in net.

JETS: The Jets Rookies lost 4-1 to the Canucks on Sunday. Josh Morissey (1-0-1), Brendan Lemieux (1-0-1), Jimmy Lodge (0-1-1) and Ryan Olsen (0-1-1) are the lone Jets players to record points in this tournament. Connor Hellebuyck has seen the bulk of work in net, playing 90:13. He has allowed five goals and has made 54 saves for a save percentage of .915 and goals-against average of 3.32.
