Stephen Hendry will face his teenage compatriot Anthony McGill in the opening round of the fourth Players Tour Championship event of the season next month.
Hendry is making his debut in the series having sat out the first three tournaments.
Ronnie O'Sullivan, a quarter-finalist in the first PTC event, also returns and will meet world no.12 Ryan Day in the last 128.
But Ding Junhui has once again not entered and is thus ineligible for the grand finals next March.
Players have to have competed in a minumum of three UK PTC events and three in Europe to be able to qualify for the big money finals.
In the standout ties in PTC4, world champion Neil Robertson faces Malta's Tony Drago, PTC2 winner Mark Selby takes on Zhang Anda, who qualified for the Crucible last season, and Matthew Stevens tackles James Wattana.
I counted 92 professionals in the field, meaning only three - John Higgins is still suspended - have opted out.
