By Zach Laing1 year ago
The Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames will lineup once again tonight for a rookie Battle of Alberta.
Puck drop is set for 6 p.m. MST tonight and can be streamed at edmontonoilers.com.
Edmonton took game one of the two-game set Saturday with a 4-3 come from behind win.
Tonight, Oilers will be without Dmitri Samorukov who suffered a broken jaw Saturday night against the Flames. Similarly, prospect Jake Chiasson will miss the remainder of rookie camp due to an upper-body injury Saturday.
Goaltender Ilya Konovalov will get the full game tonight and is absolutely a player to watch.
Camp invite Henry Rybinski led the way Saturday with two goals and one assist while Ostap Safin notched two assists.
