Mark Arcobello and Ryan Jones may return to the lineup very soon, after not playing in a game since November 13. Head Coach Dallas Eakins will look to plug them in somewhere and very soon, possibly on the Oilers upcoming road trip.
"I've got to talk to our other coaches about it but I do want to get Arcobello back in," said Eakins. "I do want to get Ryan Jones back in. This may turn into, depending how we're playing, a rotation process until we can get our lineup totally set.
"We've got guys on the cusp of, a lot of them have played well enough to be in the lineup. The problem is, we've got extra guys and those extra guys have played well enough to be in the lineup. That's something that we'll have to sort through but my vote is to get those guys back in and somebody coming out will have to take it on the chin even though they've probably played okay as well."
Arcobello has 12 points in 20 games this season for the Oilers while Jones has three points in 12 games.
