KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 45-26-11, 101 points. Third in Central Division.
LOST to Winnipeg Jets in Western Conference quarterfinals.
COACH: Bruce Boudreau (third season, 12th NHL season).
ADDED: RW J.T. Brown, C Eric Fehr, C Matt Hendricks, RW Matt Read, D Greg Pateryn, D Matt Bartkowski.
LOST: C Matt Cullen, LW Tyler Ennis, RW Daniel Winnik.
PLAYER TO WATCH: LW Zach Parise. After missing the first 39 games because of a lower back problem that required surgery, Parise's delayed start was predictably slow. He scored 12 goals in his last 18 games of the regular season, though, and scored in each of the first three playoff games until being knocked out of action again by a broken sternum. Parise, who's entering his 14th NHL season at age 34, isn't built to be the team's premier scorer but needs to replicate that productivity down the stretch to help keep the offense balanced.
OUTLOOK: New GM Paul Fenton made only minor moves this summer for fresh faces on the fourth line and more depth on defense, so the Wild will rely on the same core that has been bounced out of the playoffs in the first round three straight times and won only two series over the last six years. Just reaching the postseason again in the rugged Western Conference would be an accomplishment in itself, and Boudreau has as strong of an 82-game track record as any bench boss in the league. Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, who's coming off a serious ankle injury that kept him out of the playoffs, must stay healthy throughout the seventh year of their identical $98 million megadeals. Wings Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter also have to bounce back from down seasons.
EDMONTON: LAST SEASON: 36-40-6, 78 points. Finished sixth in Pacific Division and missed playoffs.
COACH: Todd McLellan (Fourth season, 11th NHL season)
ADDED: D Jakub Jerabek, G Mikko Koskinen
LOST: D Eric Gryba
PLAYER TO WATCH: C Connor McDavid. Last season's Art Ross Trophy winner with a league-high 108 points, McDavid also won the Ted Lindsay Award as the most outstanding player as voted by the NHLPA. McDavid is the fastest, most dynamic and best player in hockey and is must-see entertainment every time he steps on the ice. Watch him as much as possible.
OUTLOOK: Who knows? McDavid can't carry the Oilers to the playoffs by himself, and general manager Peter Chiarelli didn't do anything to shake up Edmonton's mix after such a disappointing year. Goaltender Cam Talbot needs to rebound and a young, unproven defense must be significantly better for playoff hockey to return to Edmonton.
PREVIEW
Oilers hope Klefbom keeps scoring against Wild

It hasn't taken long for Oscar Klefbom to buy into what Ken Hitchcock has been preaching.

Klefbom looks to continue his timely production for the Edmonton Oilers when they play host to the Minnesota Wild on Friday night.

Selected 19th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft, Klefbom's best season came in 2016-17, when he established career bests with 12 goals, 26 assists and 38 points. After slumping to 21 points in just 66 contests last season -- and a slow start in 2018 -- the Swedish defenseman has rediscovered his offensive skills.

Klefbom has 15 points in 28 games, but has thrived since Hitchcock took over as coach on Nov. 20 for the fired Todd McLellan.

In eight games, Klefbom has scored all three of his goals with four assists. Two of his markers were game-winners in back-to-back contests, and he had the tying tally in the final minute of regulation as Edmonton (14-12-2) went on to a 3-2 shootout win over the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night.

"Klefbom let go a bomb," teammate Zack Kassian said.

Klefbom is also averaging nearly 26 minutes of ice time per game, a team high. He's also got quite a fan in his captain.

"Just scores big goals -- overtime winner, game-winner late in the third and now a game-tying goal," Connor McDavid said after the Oilers' fourth win in five games. "He's been great for us, not even because he scores goals. He plays a lot of minutes, plays hard, kills penalties, shuts guys down."

Klefbom has assists in seven of 10 career games against Minnesota. And Hitchcock said the message of getting the puck to the net is getting through to the six-year veteran.

"I think when you have good players up front, sometimes you defer and we're trying to get him to shoot the puck. We're trying to get him to pound it off the net and he's starting to do that stuff," Hitchcock said.

Edmonton fell to the Wild 4-3 on Oct. 30 at Rogers Place. Since the start of the 2010-11 season, the Oilers are 2-11-3 at home against Minnesota (15-11-2).

The Wild have a quick turnaround after their fourth loss in five games, a 2-0 defeat to the Calgary Flames on Thursday. Mikko Koivu left with an injury following a hit by Mark Giordano in the third period, and the longtime captain's status for this game is not immediately known.

Coach Bruce Boudreau said he did not have an update on Koivu, who is tied for the team lead with 17 assists and has 21 points.

Minnesota, which is trying to wrap up a three-game trip through Western Canada with a winning mark, is 4-1-0 in the back ends of games played on consecutive nights this season.

"At the end of the day, especially a game like tonight where we lost the game, it's always fun going right back at it," winger Nino Niederreiter said.

After backup Wild goaltender Alex Stalock made 18 saves versus Calgary, Devan Dubnyk is expected to get the nod against the team that picked him 14th overall in the 2004 draft.

Dubnyk is 3-1-0 with a 1.24 goals-against average, a .947 save percentage and one shutout in four road starts against the Oilers after being acquired from the Arizona Coyotes in January 2015. His 144 wins since being dealt are the second-most in the league behind the Washington Capitals' Braden Holtby (154).

Zach Parise, who is expected to appear in his 900th NHL game for Minnesota, has collected nine of his 13 goals on the road this season. One of those tallies came on the power Edmonton in October.
