Perron returns for Oilers; Flyers shuffle lines

PHILADELPHIA -- The Edmonton Oilers will have forward David Perron back in the lineup Saturday when they play the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

Perron had nine points in 13 games prior to being injured.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
