Oilers' Evander Kane: Back at practice
Kane (personal) returned to practice Friday, Tom Gazzola of TSN.ca reports.
Kane should return to action Saturday against Chicago after missing Wednesday's loss to Columbus due to a personal matter. He's picked up five goals and 13 points through 17 contests this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: Provides power-play assist
Nugent-Hopkins recorded a power-play assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Nugent-Hopkins has a goal and four helpers, including three on the power play, during his three-game point streak. The 29-year-old remains on track for a career year -- he already has a career-best 30 power-play points, and he's at 58 points through 49 contests overall. That puts him 10 shy of his previous high-water mark from the 2018-19 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Connor McDavid: Nabs power-play helper
McDavid logged a power-play assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
McDavid kept his point streak alive at 11 games when he set up a Zach Hyman tally in the second period. The streak has spanned all of January, with McDavid posting eight goals and nine helpers, including seven power-play points, in that span. The 26-year-old is up to 89 points (44 on the power play), 203 shots on net, 43 hits and a plus-1 rating through 49 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Derek Ryan: Nets goal Wednesday
Ryan scored a goal on five shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Ryan has gone from being a purely defensive forward to picking up two goals and an assist over his last four games. The 36-year-old probably won't sustain this burst of offense for long, but he's starting to earn more ice time with his strong play. For the season, Ryan has seven goals, five assists, 54 shots on net, 30 hits, 29 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 47 outings.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Zach Hyman: Strikes on power play in OT loss
Hyman scored a power-play goal on two shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Hyman has been on quite the heater lately. He's scored in four straight outings, and he has five goals and eight helpers during a six-game point streak. The 30-year-old winger has already secured a career year in points with 57, and his 25 goals put him two shy of matching his career-best mark from the last season. In 2022-23, he's added 186 shots on net, 50 hits, 25 PIM, 19 power-play points and a plus-13 rating through 48 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Drops result in overtime
Skinner allowed three goals on 27 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Skinner started for the second straight game, but he didn't get enough goal support Wednesday to pick up another win. The 24-year-old gave up the decisive tally to rookie Kent Johnson midway through the extra session. Skinner is now at 13-10-3 with a 2.92 GAA and a .914 save percentage through 28 appearances. With Jack Campbell getting into form while Skinner was away from the team, this could become more of a tandem situation the rest of the way. The Oilers' last game before the bye week and All-Star break is Saturday versus the lowly Blackhawks.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Between pipes versus Jackets
Skinner will tend the twine at home versus Columbus on Wednesday.
Skinner allowed just two goals on 29 shots (.931 save percentage) in his first game back from a personal absence against Vancouver on Saturday. With Jack Campbell currently riding a five-game winning streak, Skinner may be hard-pressed to reclaim the starting gig.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Mattias Janmark: Ready to return
Janmark (illness) will be back in the lineup Wednesday versus Columbus, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Janmark, who has sat out the past two games, has contributed four goals, nine assists and 40 shots on net in 32 games this season. He is projected to play alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Klim Kostin because Evander Kane (personal) is unavailable.... See More ... See Less

Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Tickles twine in win
Draisaitl scored a goal in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.
Draisaitl was the only Oiler to record exactly one point, but he made it count as the game-winning goal. This was his ninth game-winner of the season. He's notched six goals and five assists during his current six-game point streak, and he's up to 28 tallies, 73 points, 143 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 46 contests overall.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Connor McDavid: One of each in win
McDavid scored a goal on seven shots and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.
McDavid reached the 40-goal mark for the season when he opened the scoring 1:26 into the game. He also set up a Zach Hyman tally later in the first period. During McDavid's 10-game point streak, he's racked up eight goals and eight assists, and five of those contests have been multi-point efforts for the superstar. He's at a stunning 88 points with 200 shots on net, 41 hits and a plus-2 rating through 48 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: Posts three-point effort
Nugent-Hopkins scored an empty-net goal on two shots, added two assists and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.

He's up to 22 goals, 57 points (29 on the power play), 112 shots on net and a plus-7 rating through 48 contests overall.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Zach Hyman: Carves up Canucks for four points
Hyman scored a power-play goal on five shots and added three assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.
Hyman scored at 8:31 of the first period to put the Oilers up 2-0. He had the primary assist on their other three goals, putting together one of his best games of the season. He's on a five-game point streak consisting of four goals and eight assists, and he's up to a career-high 56 points (24 tallies, 32 helpers) through 47 contests overall.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Triumphant return to crease
Skinner stopped 27 of 29 shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.
The Oilers' top six set the tone, and Skinner bent but didn't break to earn his first win since Dec. 30. It was the Oilers' sixth straight win as a team, but Jack Campbell had picked up the first five during the streak. Skinner improved to 13-10-2 with a 2.92 GAA and a .915 save percentage through 27 appearances. It's a good problem for head coach Jay Woodcroft to have when both of his goalies are in form, but it leads to a potential timeshare in the Edmonton crease that limits fantasy value for both of Skinner and Campbell. The Oilers host the bottom-feeding Blue Jackets on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less

Janmark (illness) won't return Saturday versus Vancouver, according to the NHL media site.
