This is it, folks! Â Morgan Rielly skating in WHL regular season action against one of the better teams in the league on national television.
Many of you likely caught some of Rielly in the Subway Super Series but this is probably the first time most of you will be catching him in WHL action. Â Edmonton is the kind of team that can cause Rielly some trouble as they’re pretty aggressive forecheckers and they carry a lot of size in their top-6 forward group. Â Still, I would be betting on Rielly being the best player on the ice tonight, especially on the powerplay.
Another player to keep an eye on is Edmonton Oil King forward Curtis Lazar who our very own Jon Steitzer has been stalking / cheering for all season. Â Lazar is 2013 draft eligible and will probably slot in somewhere between 7-15 overall. Â Definitely a guy worth tracking tonight.
