Oilers winger David Perron, a last-minute scratch last game against Toronto, didn’t practise Thursday as his condition changed from illness to injury. “We’ll see,” said head coach Dallas Eakins, when asked about Perron’s status for Saturday against Detroit. “He wasn’t feeling well the other day. I think he’s over that, and he’s got a ton of pain in his back and up in his neck. He took some serious whacks the other night. He’s kind of day to day.” Goaltender Devan Dubnyk, who missed two games with a bad ankle, practised with the team. If he’s ready it’ll mean Richard Bachman or Jason LaBarbera will be sent to OK … With Justin Schultz taking the practice off and Corey Potter and Denis Grebeshkov placed on waivers for the purpose of assignment to Oklahoma City, Ryan Smyth skated as the sixth defenceman Thursday.
