EDMONTON, AB - The Oilers are back at Rogers Place on Saturday to begin a four-game homestand against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Following his activation off Injured Reserve this morning after missing nine games with a shoulder injury, defenceman Oscar Klefbom will re-join the lineup on the club's top pairing with Adam Larsson.

Head Coach Dave Tippett elects to move Ryan Nugent-Hopkins off his line with Leon Draisaitl and Kailer Yamamoto and connect the Burnaby, B.C. product with Connor McDavid and Zack Kassian on the top line. Nugent-Hopkins has 39 points (14 G, 25 A) with a +11 rating in his last 27 games.
