Just a few notes for this game
- @David Rittich vs. @Stuart Skinner is our goaltending match-up for tonight’s contest. Rittich has an all-time record of 4-5-1 against the Oilers. Skinner has a 1-1-0 record against the Jets. Rittich is looking for a bounce-back game as his last time in the net he allowed 5 goals on 13 shots during the May third loss to the Colorado Avalanche in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Could this type of game against young Oilers help the former All-Star goaltender? I hope so. Getting a couple of decent early saves in the preseason will help anyone find some confidence. Skinner will be playing the full 60-minutes in today’s match-up, it’s unknown if @Arvid Holm will see any ice-time tonight.
- @kevin Stenlund will be making his Jets debut. Stenlund the 26-year-old Sweed signed a one-year contract with the Jets during the free agent frenzy on July 13th. in his short career in the NHL Stenlund has played 71 games and scored 11 goals and nine assists for 20 points. The second-round draft pick is looking to join the Jets after being injured most of last season and only getting in three games with his former club the Columbus Blue Jackets.
- Pierre-luc Dubois vs. @Kailer Yamamoto. There’s nothing like starting beef over the internet these days. Dubois would have this incredible video go out on Twitter.
We needed more Oilers vs. Jets games this year. You can't rip on PLD and not have a meaningful game coming up soon. No, the preseason does not count as meaningful hockey. https://t.co/2jWgK6YFpt

- According to the NHL app and the TSN app. We should be able to watch this game on TSN 3. Going back to the end of last year the Jets play-by-play was Dennis Beyak who retired. We haven’t seen who the official replacement for the former broadcaster is but TSN 690’s English Montreal Canadiens guy Dan Robertson will be taking over for tonight’s broadcast and most likely for the entire season.
- It’s just preseason but rip on those Oilers fans on social media, they seem to forget that the James Richardson International is a real place which flies to LA on a daily now.
- The Jets line-up is “relatively young” according to head coach @Rick Bowness. As you can down below the only full-time Jets we will see tonight will @Jansen Harkins, @Dominic Toninatio, @Mason Appleton, @Perre-Luc Dubois, @Dylan Demelo and @Logan Stanley.
