Pre-Season - Edmonton Oilers @ Winnipeg Jets - Oct 1st - Preview
The Winnipeg Jets enter tonight's game with a 2-1 record in the pre-season, with 3 games remaining (Edmonton (1) & Calgary (2)). After unveiling the Dale Hawerchuk statue as a tribute to the best Jet of the 1.0 Winnipeg Jets franchise, the hometown team will be looking to honour Ducky with a win.
The Jets will dress a much more talented roster than the previous game versus the Canadiens, but there are still big names watching from the pressbox (Scheifele, Ehlers, Connor, Morrissey, etc). Here is the expected line up for Winnipeg tonight.
Chevy announced some roster moves as the Jets went from 47 players at training camp to 31 left after they sent 16 to the Moose (9 directly, 3 indirectly and 4 on waivers).
This leaves them with 31 players broken down as follows:
The Edmonton Oilers come into Winnipeg with 4 pre-season games in the books and 4 more left to play. The Oilers beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-0, lost to the Seattle Kraken 3-0, dropped a game to the Calgary Flames 4-0, and then won yesterday 2-1 when they had a rematch versus the Flames.
In today's game, Edmonton won't be dressing their star players like McDavid, Draisaitl, Kane, Nurse, etc. Here is their expected lineup:
