Spokane Chiefs product Kailer Yamamoto has earned his shot with the Edmonton Oilers.
The 19-year-old Mead High School product was a dark horse to make the NHL roster, but his five preseason goals were too impressive to ignore.
There is still a chance Yamamoto returns to the Chiefs organization at some point during the season, but Edmonton doesn't have to make that decision until Yamamoto has played nine games.
