He's doing whatever it takes to get noticed, " Woodcroft said. "I saw him last game in Winnipeg kind of when the team was finding its feet in that road game. He scored a great goal, he finished a check, he was involved in a scrum, and I knew that Tyler Benson was in the building.

"I think with as many guys we have returning from last year, we still have some new faces, " Kane said. "I think it'll be a great opportunity to continue integrating guys into the room and become more comfortable with each other. Those things are always a lot of fun, so I'm expecting a fun day. "Goaltender Jack Campbell, who made eight saves in a half-game of action against the Calgary Flames on Friday, will start and play the whole 60 minutes against the Canucks. COMPETITION CRUNCH TIMERoles are up for grabs, and time is running out. Players in the heat of competing for a spot on the opening-day roster only have three pre-season matches left to make their mark, and that goes for the same for the coaches who have to make the hard decisions over the coming weeks about who stays and who doesn't.
"I think we're just building towards our lineup for the season, " Ceci said. "We're getting more guys in games now in the later half of this preseason. I think it'll give us a better look at what we're going to dress on opening night. " Video: PRE-RAW | Dylan Holloway 10. 22Ceci will make his second pre-season appearance after coming into Camp with a hamstring injury he suffered during captain's skates early in September.

They've all looked really good so far though. "Samorukov looks to have a statement game tonight in the left-side role of the third pairing alongside Barrie as he continues to audition for the job. "I think it's a good battle for that position, " Woodcroft said. "We're going to continue to evaluate on a day-by-day basis. "I have a good understanding of Dmitri going back to his first year as a professional, and he's someone who's shown well in the first few days. Having an impact on the game in the minutes you're given during pre-season is at the centre of getting noticed by the coaching staff, and Tyler Benson is doing his part.

"Both are unbelievable players, but I'm just really excited. I'm really excited to play and it should be a good game. " Head Coach Jay Woodcroft is awarding the 2020 first-round pick his chance to keep impressing, this time in a leading offensive role, after evaluating the roster's needs as a whole and seeing the strong impression he's made in the first two-plus weeks of Training Camp. "I think when you go through Training Camp, what happens is you want to make sure enough people get enough games and you kind of game plan out what certain people might need, " he said. "So we've had a few players play a lot of games last week, so we're not going to just outplay everybody in the preseason.
" Video: PRE-RAW | Jay Woodcroft 10. 03. 22Kane remembers himself as an 18-year-old breaking into the league with the Atlanta Thrashers and knows how important confidence is to a young player looking to stick in the NHL. Based on first impressions, Holloway isn't lacking anything in that department. "I think he's a guy that has a lot of confidence and that's a good thing, " Kane said. "You have to have that confidence as a younger player in order to be effective in this league because it you don't, you won't be effective. I think just continuing to have that confidence and belief in himself, which I don't think he needs a lot of help with, is good thing and I'm expecting really good things from him this year.
I thought we had a good game last night. Everyone came to the rink with mindset today to get better. "Fresh off a 3-2 shootout victory over the Jets in Winnipeg on Saturday, Edmonton reduced their camp roster by nine, assigning eight players to the Bakersfield Condors while placing Greg McKegg on waivers with the purpose of also sending him to the AHL. Video: PRE-RAW | Evander Kane 10. 22The Oilers were backstopped by rising goaltender Stuart Skinner in the victory over Winnipeg, with the 23-year-old turning aside 33 of 35 shots in regulation and overtime while not allowing a Jets skater to score in the shootout.
