Port Adelaide Academy product Martin Frederick will make his debut for the Power this weekend against St Kilda.
Coach Ken Hinkley confirmed Frederick's inclusion into the side, with the 20-year-old to be unleashed off half-back on Sunday afternoon.
Frederick joined the Power as a Category B Rookie via the 2018 Rookie Draft from SANFL side Woodville-West Torrens.
Speaking to the media on Saturday, Hinkley said Frederick will add plenty of run out of defense at Adelaide Oval on ANZAC Day.
"Marty Frederick will play on Sunday," Hinkley said.
"It’s a great story. He’s an academy product coming off the rookie list. There’s just as much excitement around Marty as any other player coming through at our club.
"Marty gives us plenty of dash and excitement coming off of halfback. He’s a bubbly character around the group. The type of person you love to have at your football club."
The South Sudanese talent is likely to be one of several changes for Hinkley's side, with Hamish Hartlett and Dan Houston still out to prove their fitness, while rookie defender Lachie Jones will miss the next month with syndesmosis.
KH: We’re really confident Hamish Hartlett will play on Sunday. Dan Houston has a bit more to prove at training this morning. They’ll both go through some tests. We aren’t ruling either of them out #pafclive
