The Battle of Alberta is shaping up to be exactly that on Saturday. One day after the Calgary Flames called up tough guy Eric Godard from the American Hockey League, Edmonton responded by announcing that Zach Stortini would be joining the Oilers.

Stortini, 21, has never played an NHL game but has racked up 440 penalty minutes in 108 AHL contests. Godard, meanwhile, has 267 PIMs in 110 career NHL games. He has also logged 942 PIMs in 279 AHL games.

Goddard and Stortini have tangled already this season, back on November 10, when both players were in the minors, and in a pre-season game on September 21.

To make room for Stortini on the roster, Edmonton placed defenceman Steve Staios on injured reserve.
