The Oilers entered the bye week a little bruised up, giving a few injured Oilers some time to get healthy.

Head Coach Todd McLellan provided an update on Matt Benning, Darnell Nurse and Jujhar Khaira.

"Benning looks like he'll be OK," said McLellan.

Nurse has been sidelined since December 1 with an ankle injury. Khaira continues to labour an upper-body injury.

"Nurse obviously isn't ready but he's back on the ice. Khaira's on the ice, so those are good signs but neither of those two will be ready to compete."
