Breaking: First round pick out of the lineup

Edmonton Oilers head coach Todd McLellan shook up his lineup for the game against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.


First round pick forward Kailer Yamamoto will come out of the lineup, and veteran Jussi Jokinen will take his spot. Anton Slepyshev will play on the second line, alongside Milan Lucic and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Cam Talbot is expected to start the game in nets.


Maroon - McDavid - Draisaitl
Lucic - RNH - Slepyshev
Caggiula - Strome - Jokinen
Pakarinen - Letestu - Kassian

The defensive pairings were not cast in stone during the morning skate. 

Edmonton will try to bounce back from a shaky start this season, as they only won three of their first eleven games.
