(Joey Laleggia in action with the Oilers at the Young Stars Classic Saturday)
Joey Laleggia is one of two former Vees playing in the Young Stars Classic this week in Penticton. Brendan O’Donnell is the other, as he’s playing with the Winnipeg Jets on a tryout.
*I’ve been told O’Donnell will make his Jets debut Monday against the Oilers.
Laleggia and the Oilers are 2-0, after wins over Vancouver (8-2) and Calgary (6-3). The Oilers wrap-up their tournament schedule tomorrow mid-morning against Winnipeg. Oilers TV sat down with Laleggia, talking about his pro debut in the AHL last spring, playing in the Young Stars Classic and playing alongside Connor McDavid.
