BLOG: Perron update

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

David Perron missed Tuesday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs with an illness. While the Oilers forward is over that and feeling better, he is still day-to-day and missed practice this morning.

Head Coach Dallas Eakins says they'll see if he'll be ready to play on Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings.

"We'll see," said Eakins. "He wasn't feeling well the other day, I think he's over that. He's got a ton of pain in his back and up on his neck. He took some serious whacks the other night. He's kind of day-today. I'm hoping he'll be back tomorrow."
