Edmonton Oilers Team News
After a very successful season, the Oilers kept the majority of their stars and will be looking to make the next step. Last year they reached the Western Conference Final after a period of struggle. In 2006 they lost in the Stanley Cup Finals and then failed to make postseason for 10 consecutive years.
As usual, they will still rely on the deadly combo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, which will have plenty of support. They spent the most of the summer extending contracts and resigned Evander Kane and Brett Kulak. Defenseman Duncan Keith retired, but they have a lot of quality players who can step up.
Winnipeg Jets Team News
Last year the Jets had a season to forget, missing the playoffs for the first time in five seasons. If you want to turn things around, you have to start by changing your head coach. This summer the Jets searched far and wide and decided to appoint Rick Bowness, who arrived after a solid 3-year stint with the Dallas Stars.
Paul Stastny signing for Carolina left a hole in Winnipeg´s offense, but the Jets are hoping their talented youngsters can make up for that loss. A couple of other players left as well, but the majority of Winnipeg´s roster is the same, which means not making the playoffs for the second straight season would be a huge disappointment.
Edmonton Oilers vs. Winnipeg Jets Prediction
Both teams will have a lot of players with a point to prove in their starting lineups, but one of them stands out. Coach Jay Woodcroft has decided to give a chance to rookie netminder Stuart Skinner, who is expected to have a major role this season. He has to prove he is ready to become the main backup option, so we expect him to be at a high level today.
