EDMONTON, AB - The Oilers have recalled defencemen William Lagesson and Philip Broberg from the Bakersfield Condors while placing defencemen Darnell Nurse and Slater Koekkoek on Injured Reserve.

Additionally, goaltender Mike Smith has been placed on Long-Term Injured Reserve.

Broberg has posted 10 assists in 13 games for the Condors this season in the American Hockey League, while Lagesson has recorded two assists in 11 games. Over 27 career NHL games with the Oilers, Lagesson has tallied two assists, while Broberg has yet to make his NHL debut.

Nurse played 31:21 for the Oilers in Thursday night's 2-1 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets and leads the club in average TOI this season with 26:06. In 16 games, the Hamilton, Ont. product has produced 11 assists. Koekkoek left Thursday's game against Winnipeg with a lower-body injury.

Smith suffered a lower-body injury in the second period of a 6-5 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Oct. 19 and has yet to return to the crease. After travelling with the team on their last five-game road trip, the veteran netminder returned to Edmonton early in the trip for re-evaluation.
