Amid the silence of the actual ice hockey team’s decision-makers, rumors flew which goalkeeper would get the Start Tonight for Edmonton Oilers The recently activated Troy Grosenick conducted a game day interview on the club’s website and advised him to Not to be the starter The obvious conclusion was that the only other netminder on the roster, Mikko Koskinen, turned 11 Would get start in a row

That would be Stuart Skinner, who joined the taxi team yesterday to make way for Grosenick, the 22-year-old Edmonton native, who replaced Koskinen in the first nine games This was due to # 2 Mike Smith’s injury, loss of waiver of # 3 Anton Forsberg, and # 3 Grosenick’s unavailability due to COVID logs

Out of the blue he seems to be back on the roster, on the line-up, and destined to take the crease tonight

Dailyfaceoffcom also projects Skinner on the “Starting Goalkeeper” page, but warns that it is “Unconfirmed” and “No goalkeeper details yet”

Skinner, who was elected in the third round of the 2017 NHL Draft, turned pro a year later and divided the time between the Oilers ECHL and AHL partners in Wichita and Bakersfield, doing the lion’s share of his time (41 games ) saw in the lower league in his first year, then in the major minor league (also 41 games) in year 2 He picked up a 3 on 31 goals against average and 892 percent less for a fighting team looking outside for playoff conflicts, when the curtain fell on the season

The Oilers will make a number of other line-up changes after the pulsating 4-3 overtime win over Toronto on Saturday night That game left top pairing D-man Ethan Bear with an apparent upper body injury Rishaug again:

Lagesson didn’t stay out long ice skating with the taxi team so he seems to be there https: // tco / dPXjdc9GMk

Very speculative If I understand correctly, the next step is to buy a couple of lottery tickets (Narrator: It wasn’t (entirely) right for an updated list at the end of the post)

Tonight’s opponents, Ottawa Senators, come to town after losing three games in a row to Winnipeg and Vancouver after losing three games in a row, the Ottawa Senators, the final five of them were regulated by a combined score of 7 for 26 against During Sens what the free space on the bingo card looks like this season, the club has been resting since Thursday, while the Oilers spent a lot of emotional capital from the Leafs on Saturday night

The Sens will reportedly miss a key defender of their own in the person of Thomas Chabot, who was struck in his last game in VanCity despite finishing the competition with 24 minutes of ice age

Game time is 7pm MST as Twitter is filled with jokes about “Oilers Start Goalie” from Joaquin Gage to Don Cutts

It turns out that Gaetan Haas is ready to go and will slide into the 4C point over Devin Shore, who was transferred straight to the taxi squad Presumably # 4 goalkeeper Dylan Wells has been transferred from the taxi squad to Bakersfield colleague David Staples here are more details about the Haas addition

The rest of today’s lines and pairings (and the starting goalkeeper!) are as we projected before
