The Oiler YoungStars team will participate in three games. Last year’s YoungStars tournament saw the first glimpses of Hall, Eberle and Paajarvi in on-ice action. This year’s first overall draft pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will be seen on ice in Oiler silks for the first time, sporting the #72 sweater. (If you haven’t already heard, he’s going with #93 should he make the team in October). Both Tyler Bunz and Oiliver Roy will see action between the pipes, and defence prospects David Musil, Colten Teubert and Jeremie Blain will all be representing the Oil.
The entire roster can be seen here.
The tournament is again likely to be streamed online. Haven’t seen if the same .URL will be used this year, but you can rest comfortably knowing that when I figure it out, so will you.
Ten days to go.
