Players will undergo physcial evaluations on Sunday and will begin practice on Monday at 8:45 a.m.  All training camp practices will take place at the Oilers Ice Center (6413 S. Mingo) and all practices are open to the public.

“I’m excited about the talent we’ve got on this roster,” said Ramsay.  “There’s a good mix of young talent along with some veteran leadership and I think overall, we’ll be a much deeper team than we were last season.  It’s going to be fun to see these guys compete and I know I’ll have some tough decisions to make.”
