Ray Emery will start in goal and Alex Salak will finish the second half of the game when the Blackhawks open their preseason schedule tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.
Jonathan Toews and brother David will both play tonight, and coach Joel Quenneville said he'll probably put the two together on a line during the game.
"David's new to the organization and we've seen him a little here in camp. But to play in an NHL game is a thrill," Quenneville said. "It'll be fun watching not just him, but that whole group of young guys."
Game time is 8 p.m. The game will be streamed live on ChicagoBlackhawks.com in the Chicago television market.

BOSTON (AP) — Marian Hossa scored with 1:26 left to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 1-0 victory over the Boston Bruins on Friday night.
Scott Darling stopped 30 shots for his second shutout of the season.
Tuukka Rask made 21 saves for Boston, which has lost three straight games and four of its last five.
It was a rematch of the 2013 Stanley Cup finals, when Chicago scored twice in the final 76 seconds of the third period in Game 6 to overcome a one-goal deficit and claim the NHL title.
This time, the game was scoreless before the Blackhawks made their final charge. The puck made its way to Tanner Kero on Rask’s left; he slid it across the crease for Hossa, who put it in the net.
David Kaplan hosts this episode of SportsTalk Live and is joined by Chris Rongey (670 The Score), Seth Gruen (Bleacher Report) and Chris Emma (670 The Score).
They debate whether or not the Bulls should make a run at signing Chris Bosh this coming off-season.
They also ask "O Captain, Where Art Thou?" and wonder what is behind Toews's dip in production this season. Finally, they discuss who is the best QB playing this weekend in the AFC and NFC Championship games.
