The Oilers could get a welcomed body back on the blueline when they host the Ducks on Thursday as Brandon Davidson has skated with the team these last few days and is almost ready to return from his rib injury.
“He had a good practice today,” said Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan. “I would say that he’s pretty much ready to go, unless somebody tells me otherwise after our meeting here.”
With forward Iiro Pakarinen out with an undisclosed injury suffered Tuesday against Los Angeles, one of two players could make their return to the lineup in his stead.
Either Rob Klinkhammer or Jujhar Khaira are the choices for McLellan.
“Klink is getting close as well, so it will be one of JJ or Klink to come in,” said the coach.
