Already without Taylor Hall the Edmonton Oilers will close out their six-game road trip against the Montreal Canadiens without Ryan Smyth. And they may also be lining up without Jordan Eberle.
Eberle missed the last two days of practice while Smyth has returned to Edmonton with an unspecified injury. He did skate on Sunday.
That has opened the door for Tyler Pitlick who was recalled from the AHL Oklahoma City Barons. Pitlick has yet to play an NHL game. Ryan Jones will draw into the lineup as well.
“You could argue Jordan has been our best forward and a big part of our team” head coach Dallas Eakins said Monday. “Just running practice without him isn’t for the faint-hearted. We’ll cross our fingers that he’s good for tomorrow but we have to be careful too.
“We don’t want to rush him and have this turn into something bigger.”
Eberle said on Sunday he had just woken up stiff and sore but wasn’t specific about whether or not it was his back.
Hall meanwhile was injured in Saturday...

from Katie Strang of ESPN,
Boasting a lineup with some of the most talented youngsters in the league -- Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Nail Yakupov, Justin Schultz -- the Oilers seem like a team that should be on the precipice.
