Playing a pre-season game in Winnipeg might not seem like much at the best of times, much less after starring for the most exciting team at the World Cup of Hockey, but Ryan Nugent-Hopkins couldn’t wait for the puck to drop.

WINNIPEG — There is a rock-star thing about Patrik Laine back home. In Finland, he’s seen as the second coming of the Finnish Flash, Teemu Selanne, who skated with the Winnipeg Jets at the beginning of his 21-year National Hockey League career. But as longtime scribe Vesa Rantanen said in a Winnipeg Free Press story just before the draft, “there was no Twitter or Instagram or Facebook back then, and now if Laine posts a picture on Instagram, they want to know if he’s got a new haircut or his driver’s licence.” Here in Winnipeg, they just want to know if he can score on NHL goalies. The No. 2 pick in the June draft behind Auston Matthews, who went to Toronto, had his

Playing a pre-season game in Winnipeg might not seem like much at the best of times, much less after starring for the most exciting team at the World Cup of Hockey, but Ryan Nugent-Hopkins couldn’t wait for the puck to drop. “I had a week off so I’m feeling pretty rested,” said the Edmonton Oilers centre, who wants to be as busy as possible so he can maintain the momentum he had with Team North America. “I definitely want to play a few at least to keep in that game shape and not lose anything going into the season.” Nugent-Hopkins, on a line with Benoit Pouliot and Jesse Puljujarvi against the Jets, likes what he’s seen from the Finnish rookie so far. “He’s looking good, he

The Oilers continue their preseason slate tonight with game number four against the Winnipeg Jets. The club enters tonight with a 2-1-0 record on the exhibition slate after their 5-3 loss at Vancouver on Wednesday night. Edmonton made a number of cuts on Thursday, including assigning goaltender Nick Ellis to the Bakersfield Condors of the AHL. Trin Protratz touched on the cuts earlier today, and you can read his thoughts here. Cam Talbot will start tonight for Edmonton, while Laurent Brossoit will backup. It remains to be seen what the time split between these two will be, if there is one. The Jets, meanwhile, will have Ondrej Pavelec and Michael Hutchinson dressed in this game. The Lineup

Why the Oilers’ blue line is looking ‘a lot more promising’

EDMONTON — There is only one team in the National Hockey League that could have made the Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson trade, and had even 25 per cent of its fan base claim to endorse the move. That is how bad the Edmonton Oilers‘ defence corps has been over the years — that general manager Peter Chiarelli could deal a 65-point winger for a stay-at-home defenceman who has amassed 69 points in his entire, 274-game NHL career. “He’s not a sexy defenceman,” Chiarelli admitted back on June 29, when the deal went down and the howling began in Edmonton. “You have to reserve judgment on this [trade] before you start the Twitter war. It’s all one equation.” Today, as the Oilers

Griffin Reinhart goes right back under the microscope as Oilers take on Jets

While hotshot Finns Patrik Laine and Jesse Puljujarvi will grab most of the headlines, there is no single member of the Edmonton Oilers who needs a strong performance in Winnipeg tonight more than defenceman Griffin Reinhart. The 22-year-old defender has been the subject of wrath in some corners since the day he was acquired by the Oilers for two high draft choices at the NHL draft 15 months ago. He certainly didn’t help his cause in his first game of the current preseason, in Vancouver two nights ago when the Oilers fell 5-3 to the Canucks. Reinhart did score a goal but took a bad penalty and struggled on several occasions to contain wide speed, a concern in the past which remains his
