On Wednesday, the Edmonton Oilers skated in an optional practice at Rexall Place.  The big news was defenceman Denis Grebeshkov skated with the team in full equipment for the first time since suffering his ankle injury. Grebeshkov stated that he's close to returning and could be back in the lineup within a week or so.


Craig MacTavish also commented on a variety of topics and Jason Strudwick discussed how he's adjusting to life back in his hometown of Edmonton.

Also, Canadian rock legend Barney Bentall paid a visit to Rexall Place. As a friend of Jason Strudwick and also Paul Coffey, Bentall has been an Oilers fan for a long time.
