The Canucks visit Edmonton tonight in the first of a home-and-home series that will close the preseason for both teams. TSN1040 pregame show begins at 4:00, Jon Abbott and Dave Tomlinson have the call at 6:00. Linden Vey will get a chance to slot in on the wing, alongside Nick Bonino and Alex Burrows. That will be the Canucks de facto number one line against the Oilers. Shawn Matthias will play at centre, as Matthias will work between Chris Higgins and Jannik Hansen. Matthias can play on the wing or down the middle, and his versatility will be a factor in Matthias earning playing time this season. The Canucks three hopeful youngsters will all suit up against the Oilers, as Bo Horvat will centre a line of Tom Sestito and Derek Dorsett, while Hunter Shinkaruk and Nicklas Jensen will skate with Cal Oa€?Reilly. On the backend, the Canucks will have a fair bit of experience, as Alex Edler, Kevin Bieksa, Dan Hamhuis, Chris Tanev, Luca Sbisa, and Ryan Stanton will play. Eddie Lack will get the start in goal against the Oilers, while Ryan Miller will start in Saturdaya€?s game. The Sedins and Radim Vrbata will not travel to Edmonton, which means the Twins will appear in four home games and no road games in exhibition action. Linden Vey has switched from uniform number 44 to number 7. The low-key forward said double-digits seemed a little flashy for him and he preferred a lower number. With Vey on the wing, the Canucks will have four left-handed centres in tonights game.
