Nail Yakupov is expected to make his return from an ankle injury tomorrow against San Jose. The Oilers winger has missed 21 games, sitting out since November 27.
“I expect him to play,” said Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan. “That could certainly change when he comes off the ice or if things havent gone well medically, but all indications are he’s real close to playing.”
Yakupov skated with Anton Lander and Zack Kassian at practice, however McLellan said not to read into the lines as there could be changes ahead of the game.
