BLOG: Eakins on injury status of Pouliot, Nikitin

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins spoke to the media after practice on Tuesday and commented on the status of Benoit Pouliot -- who did not skate -- and defenceman Nikita Nikitin.

Eakins said that Pouliot did not skate today due to a hip flexor but that he's probably for Thursday. Nikitin did skate but his status for Thursday remains up in the air. He has been out with an ankle injury.
