Oilers winger Benoit Pouliot did not skate yesterday, but was on the ice today for practice. Head Coach Dallas Eakins said he was dealing with a hip flexor injury on Tuesday. Pouliot says it was feeling much better today.
“I’m feeling good,” Pouliot said. “It’s been a long week, I haven’t really skated that much as I’m trying to stay off of it and trying to heal whatever is going on. But I felt great this morning and hopefully tomorrow I will feel the same way.”
Pouliot says he does not know the exact origin of the injury, he’s just trying to make sure it doesn’t affect him much longer.
“Just a bad hip. I guess it happened when skating or maybe I got hit, I have no clue. One day it was really sore and I just tried to get it better so it doesn’t keep going for a few games or a few days.”
