Oilers centre Sam Gagner has missed two days of practice in a row. The absence has been due to maintenance days as Gagner heals up a sore ankle. It is not expected to prevent him from playing against the Anaheim Ducks tomorrow night.
“Remember he hurt his ankle there, that twisted ankle has been flaring up on him,” Head Coach Dallas Eakins said. “He’s been sucking it up and playing so we’re just trying to give him as much time away from the games to heal. I’m sure he’ll just suck it up again tomorrow and play.”
Gagner says he’s ready to go.
“Just taking care of some things,” he said. “I should be good to go tomorrow.”
