There are specific rules in place when it comes to captain Connor McDavid and centre Leon Draisaitl, because of the anticipated demand for their signatures.

Only the first 400 fans lined up for McDavid and Draisaitl will be guaranteed an autograph, and saving spots will not be allowed. Once fans line up, they must remain in the line.

In addition, McDavid will only be signing custom Upper Deck photos provided at the table. He will be personalizing signatures, the mall said.

Anyone planning on attending the event is asked to go early. Last year, the Oilers held a similar event at the mall and people were able to start lining up at 6 a.m.
