Nothing on the Oilers website yet, but TSN is reporting that Edmonton has finalized their opening night roster today and both Ladislav Smid and Zach Stortini failed to make the cut.
I believe that leaves us with an opening night lineup that looks more or less like this:
Sanderson, Jacques, Spurgeon
Good on Gilbert for making the team despite the logjam and a easily-demotable two-way contract.
Otherwise, nothing wrong with sending Stortini down, at least at first so Jacques has a chance to prove his worth. Also, I can't really see Sanderson starting in the press box or staying too long if he does, so maybe he'll draw in for Pouliot if he falters or wait for Gagner to get sent back to the OHL.
And am I right? Has Tyler Spurgeon really weathered the storm and avoided the cut? If so, shocking.
