"It was just a side muscle, oblique I guess you would call it. I feel good though," Rattie, who hasn't played since Oct. 18, said. "I've been skating by myself for the last week with the training staff and the last couple of days with the team. 

"I'm back to 100 percent. So, I feel well and I'm just ready to get back in there and help the team any way I can."

The Airdrie, AB, native has two points in five games this season.

"Now it's a matter of how my body reacts to skates and stuff like that. Right now, I feel good and we'll go from there," he said.

BLOG: Benning provides injury update

"It was good to get out on the ice yesterday by myself and then today back with the team. I feel back to normal," said Benning.

EDMONTON, AB - The Edmonton Oilers opened their home schedule this past week against the Boston Bruins. While the Oilers skated away with a 3-2 overtime victory, it didn't come without a cost.

After playing 2:27 of the hockey game, Matt Benning left the game with an upper-body injury after making a hit in the first period.

"I kind of got my bell rung when I hit (David) Backes in the Boston game," said the Oilers defenceman. "It was a few days of minor symptoms and now I feel back to normal.

"It was good to get out on the ice yesterday by myself and then today back with the team."

In four games, Benning has four shots and a minus-4 rating this season. The 6-foot-1, 203-pound defenceman logged a season-high 21:17 in the team's opening game against the New Jersey Devils.

Benning was placed on Injured Reserve on Friday.

"When you're off the ice for four or five days, you kind of lose your wind a little bit. For me, it's going to take a few days to get my wind back and those puck touches back."

The 2012 sixth-round pick says he feels ready to contribute as early as Saturday versus Nashville. He cannot be activated from the IR until Friday and will miss Thursday's tilt against the Washington Capitals as a result.

"He won't play Thursday for sure and I don't know where he'll be for the weekend," said Head Coach Todd McLellan following Wednesday's practice. "He was allowed to skate in a non-contact situation. He had a smile on his face, which is a good sign. He looked energized.

"All of those are positive steps for him."

"Ty Rattie won't be playing tonight and he'll be out for a couple of weeks at least," said Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan

by Paul Gazzola / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - Head Coach Todd McLellan provided an update on Oilers forward Ty Rattie on Saturday.

"Ty Rattie won't be playing tonight and he'll be out for a couple of weeks at least," said the bench boss ahead of the club's match against the Nashville Predators.

"Matt Benning is on IR, so he'll be out for a week for sure and Drake Caggiula is not ready to play," McLellan continued.

Rattie was limited to 7:14 of ice time and nine shifts total against the Bruins on Thursday.

"It was a muscle, a mid-body muscle," McLellan added. "I can't even tell you how it happened, it just happens and (Rattie) pulled something and he's hurt. So, he's going to need some time to recover and heal."

The Airdrie, AB, native has one goal and one assist in five games this season.

BLOG: Larsson skates, Russell doesn't on Monday

Coach Todd McLellan had an injury update on Adam Larsson and Kris Russell

by Marc Ciampa / EdmontonOilers.com

Oilers head coach Todd McLellan said that defencemen Adam Larsson and Kris Russell will not be in the lineup on Wednesday against the Cologne Sharks.

Larsson suffered a back injury on Saturday against the Flames and was taken out as a precautionary measure. He didn't practice with the team on Monday but he skated. 

"Lars skated today then left as we had planned so he's doing better. We still won't run the risk of him playing Wednesday." McLellan said, adding he expected him in the lineup for the season opener Saturday in Sweden. 

"There's a good chance Kris is going to be playing in Gothenburg when we get there. He just won't play on Wednesday."

Tryout blueliner Jason Garrison is expected to play Wednesday and that will be the last game he can play without a contract.
