The Oilers will find out as early as October if they'll land the WHL franchise they've long coveted.

Team president Patrick LaForge confirmed yesterday the Oilers will attend a meeting of WHL's governors in Calgary Oct. 12, at which time they will make a pitch to commissioner Ron Robison and his board.

"We're invited," LaForge said. "We'll go in there and make a presentation and answer any questions about how, if we were awarded a franchise, we'd manage it and so on and so forth."
