Puljujarvi practices on Oilers’ top line with McDavid

The Score

Edmonton Oilers head coach Ken Hitchcock hopes to get more out of Jesse Puljujarvi and believes slotting him alongside Connor McDavid on the team's top line may be the solution.

"I feel like his next step is to get his tempo higher," Hitchcock said after moving Puljujarvi to the top unit during the Thursday's practice. "So why not play him with the fastest player on the team, and maybe even in the league and see if he can keep up."

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was the other member of the Oilers' first line after Hitchcock's changes.
