Cam Talbot will get the start in Saturday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

Talbot has dropped each of his last four decisions. He has a 19-21-2 record with a 3.20 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage this season.

The Edmonton Oilers have assigned Keegan Lowe to the minors.

The 24-year-old has two goals and eight assists in 35 games this season. He hasn't played in an NHL game since 2014-15.
Feb 17 - 2:24 PM

Laurent Brossoit has been recalled from the minors on an emergency basis.

Brossoit is being called because Al Montoya was hurt during Friday's practice. He has a 3-7-1 record with a 3.22 goals-against-average and a .886 save percentage this season.

Cam Talbot is the Oilers' likely starter for Saturday afternoon's contest against Arizona.

Al Montoya might have been in line for the start, but he took a shot off the mask in practice on Friday and may need another day before guarding the cage. Talbot has lost four games in a row and is coming off a 4-1 loss to Vegas in which he stopped only 24 shots. We keep waiting for the Oiler and Talbot revivals, but they has been slow in coming.

Al Montoya took a shot off the mask in practice Friday.

As of now, the Oilers have not recalled a goalie from the minors, which is a good indication that Montoya will be able to dress for Saturday's matinee against the Coyotes. That said, he is not likely to start. If Montoya is feeling better on Sunday, he could get the call for the second of back-to-back contests when the Oilers face off against Colorado.
Feb 17 - 12:11 PM

Adam Larsson rejoined the Oilers for Friday's practice.

Larsson's father, Robert, passed away and Adam of course needed some time off. Oilers coach Todd McLellan said there's no timetable for Larsson's return to the lineup.

Mike Cammalleri registered an assist in the Oilers' 4-1 loss to Vegas Thursday night.

Cammalleri has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last six games. It's an interesting time for him to get hot as it might make it easier for the Oilers to shop him before the trade deadline. He has five goals and 21 points in 48 contests this season.
Feb 16 - 10:13 AM

Leon Draisaitl scored his 17th of the season in a 4-1 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night.

Despite the loss, and him scoring his team's only goal on the night, Draisaitl extended his points streak to three games. The German winger has 17 goals and 50 points in 52 games this season.
Feb 16 - 12:46 AM

Cam Talbot made 24 saves on 28 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night.

Talbot has now lost four straight for the Oilers. His record falls to 19-21-2 with a 3.20 GAA and .900 save percentage.
Feb 16 - 12:46 AM

Cam Talbot will get the start in Thursday's game against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Talbot comes into the game having dropped each of his last three games. He has a 19-20-2 record with a 3.17 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season.
Feb 15 - 6:28 PM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (ribs) hasn't resumed skating yet.

Nugent-Hopkins suffered cracked ribs back on Jan. 13. He was originally projected to miss five-to-six weeks and we're about four-and-a-half weeks into that timetable. Nugent-Hopkins had been solid this season with 16 goals and 31 points in 46 games.
Feb 15 - 4:46 AM

The Edmonton Oilers are likely to attempt to trade Mike Cammalleri at the deadline.

Cammalleri can become an unrestricted free agent this summer and the Oilers have almost no hope of making the playoffs at this point, so they're expected to make some trades with the future in mind. Cammalleri was acquired by Edmonton from Los Angeles back in November in exchange for Jussi Jokinen. Cammalleri has five goals and 20 points in 47 games this season.
Feb 15 - 4:44 AM

Andrej Sekera, who was struck in the face by the puck on Feb. 9, doesn't have any broken bones, but he might have a concussion.

As previously reported, Sekera is on the injured reserve list now. He has been sidelined for two contests. This has been a rough campaign for Sekera, who has been able to play in just 18 games this season. If he does have a concussion then there will likely be no telling as to when he might return.
Feb 15 - 4:42 AM

Andrej Sekera (face) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Sekera has missed Edmonton's last two games. He has an assist in 18 contests this season.
Feb 14 - 2:55 PM

Kris Russell is on a three-game point streak.

Russell registered an assist on Monday, which also served as his 20th point of the season. This is the first time he's reached the 20-point milestone since 2014-2015.
