Before we get into the Oilers' starting goaltender for tonights game and also the lineup, the Oilers released a medical update on a injured player:

Forward Warren Foegele skated during the pre-game skate but doesn't appear quite ready to make his return to the lineup after last recording an assist in Edmonton's 4-3 victory over the Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 26.

"The warriors like Warren, they're scratching, clawing and chomping at the bit to get back in," Head Coach Jay Woodcroft said. "I think for us, we're big-process oriented and it's no different when it comes to medical for Warren. He's had a good week here. He's been out, I think, maybe ten games or so, and we've taken a conservative approach with him."

"He didn't come with us on this road trip, and I thought it was important for him personally to work with the team and get skated by the coaches after today. I thought he had a good day and he won't be in tonight, but he's right there. He's very close."

The lines are as followed:

Draisaitl - McDavid - Hyman
Janmark - Nugent-Hopkins -Yamamoto
Holloway - Hamblin - Puljujarvi
Kostin - Shore - Ryan

Nurse - Ceci
Kulak - Barrie
Broberg - Bouchard

Skinner will get the start in goal!
