The Maple Leafs will make a pair of lineup changes on Saturday night for Saturday's matchup against the Ottawa Senators. Jack Campbell getting the start in goal, while Frederik Andersen will not dress. Aaron Dell will be the back-up. Forward Nick Robertson will make his regular-season debut in place of Alexander Barabanov, who will take Robertson's place on the taxi squad.
Forward Jujhar Khaira stayed late to work with the team's practice squad this morning. If Tyler Ennis is able to return from injury Khaira could be removed from the lineup for Saturday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.
Khaira has zero points and 10 penalty minutes in two games played this season.
The Oilers also claimed goaltender Troy Grosenick off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings. The move comes on the heels of losing Anton Forsberg on waivers and placing Mike Smith on long-term injury reserve.
According to TSN's Brent Wallace, Mike Rielly will take the place of Christian Wolanin in Saturday's lineup against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Wolanin, 25, went scoreless in one game this season. Rielly, 27, scored one goal and added 11 assists in 30 games with the Senators last season.
The Canucks will start the same lines that skated the team's first two games against the Oilers, according to TSN's Farhan Lalji. The only tweak seems to be Jake Virtanen and Brock Boeser flipping sides, with Virtanen playing on his natural right side and Boeser playing on his off wing.
