Edmonton's first ever game

Hi, I am looking for information on the Oilers first ever game back on 10 October 1979 against Chicago. I am curious as to who took to the ice that night, as in the 18 players who iced in that game. Also is there a box score available from that game?

Thanks for any info anyone can provide...

This is a list of every player who was on that team that year, but which ones were in the first ever game I am not sure. I know Kevin Lowe got the first goal.

You probably know this, but just to be clear this is Dave Dryden not Ken.

Maybe your local library has the newspaper online from Oct 11, 1979.
