Oilers forward David Perron missed the Oilers last game, against Toronto, with an illness. He then missed practice with pain in his neck which he remained out with today.
Edmonton's Head Coach Dallas Eakins says that Perron will likely be out of the lineup for another game tomorrow night as the Oilers host the Detroit Red Wings. He is being sent in to get a MRI done on his injured neck.
"I don't think he's going to be," said Eakins when asked if Perron would return to the lineup. "We're going to send him for an MRI on his neck to make sure nothing's dysfunctional there because he's got a lot of pain in his neck. We're going to send him for a MRI and we'll wait for that. He's still questionable I guess, but he's a guy I need a more in depth look to see what's going on."
