It was just revealed when Corey Perry is expected to make his debut for the Edmonton Oilers after a hiatus and termination from the NHL.

Perry Expected to Be in Lineup Tonight Against Predators

The Edmonton Oilers are on a historic win streak and are looking to go for their 16th straight win tonight against the Nashville Predators. Now, it appears that their most recent addition, the controversial Corey Perry, will be in the lineup for the first time for the game.

Perry expected to make debut when Oilers go for 16th straight win:

This will be Perry's first game back in the NHL since his termination from the Chicago Blackhawks. It's expected that he will play in the bottom six for the Oilers after signing a league-minimum deal with several performance incentives built in.

Perry's Teammates Already Love Him

After his signing, Oilers forward Dylan Holloway talked about how he used to watch Perry before he could even tie his own skates, and how he is excited to get to play on a line with him.

"He was winning cups before I even learned how to skate."
