McDavid Set to Make Comeback in Tonight's Game

An unfortunate collision between Connor McDavid and the Winnipeg Jets' Josh Morrissey left fans concerned about McDavid's availability.

However, the situation appears to have taken a positive turn, as McDavid will be returning tonight.

As of last night after practice the plan was for McDavid to be in the lineup so barring a setback this morning, 97 will make his return against the Flames.




With McDavid's return, the Oilers' forward lines for the upcoming game are as follows:

Draisaitl-McDavid-Foegele
Kane-RNH-Hyman
Holloway-McLeod-Brown
Erne-Janmark-Ryan

On the defensive front, the Oilers will line up as follows:

Nurse-Ceci
Ekholm-Broberg
Kulak-Bouchard
Desharnais


The Battle of Alberta, set for tonight at 7PM, will feature a performance by Nickelback during intermission at Common Wealth Stadium. With the news of Connor McDavid's return, fans are hoping the Oilers can make a strong comeback in this highly anticipated game.
