Edmonton, AB – A well rested Oil Kings team will welcome the Kelowna Rockets to Rexall Place tonight.

The Rockets also boast the reigning CHL Goaltender of the week Jordon Cooke.
TJ Foster continues to lead the Oil Kings with nine goals but the real story has been the special teams play. Edmonton enters the weekend with the second ranked power play as well as the second ranked penalty kill in the WHL.
