FEATURE: Sekera back with the team

Injured defenceman Andrej Sekera skated with the team for the first time on Friday since tearing his ACL in the playoffs

by Chris Wescott / Head Writer

EDMONTON, AB - The Oilers are sure happy to see Andrej Sekera's smiling face on the ice.

"It's a good thing. When you're injured, you're kind of on an island," said Oilers defenceman Matt Benning. "You're coming in before everyone shows up and you leave when guys are coming on the ice. You don't really get to see much of him so it's nice to see him back around and see he's doing well."

No player is happier to see Sekera doing well than the blueliner himself.

BLOG: Caggiula, Draisaitl comment on status

by Chris Wescott / Head Writer

PITTSBURGH, PA - The Oilers anticipate that Drake Caggiula and Leon Draisaitl could be cleared as early as tomorrow for the team's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. However, that's still up to the players and the doctors.

But that didn't stop both forwards from working hard in practice on Monday. They both participated in every drill and every situation, including power play. Draisaitl was on the top unit, while Caggiula was on the second.

"I feel pretty good," said Draisaitl. "Felt pretty good the last couple days. Happy to be out there with the boys and hopefully it won't be much longer. We'll see how I feel tomorrow and then we'll go from there."

"More than happy to be out there for a full practice and fully participate," said Caggiula. "Still have to see how the rest of the day goes and see how tomorrow goes, don't know for sure if I'm playing or not, but I'm feeling pretty good and have been practicing now for a little while. There will be some rust for sure but I've been trying to practice and keep up as much as I can."

BLOG: Draisaitl and Caggiula close, but not cleared

by Chris Wescott / Head Writer

PITTSBURGH, PA - It's a burning question for the Edmonton Oilers, so Head Coach Todd McLellan opened his media availability by answering it before taking any others.

Both injured forwards Leon Draisaitl and Drake Caggiula are questionable for tomorrow's tilt with the Penguins, despite fully participating in practice.

They're close, but not yet cleared to play.

"Leon and Drake both look good, they feel good but they both have a number of hurdles to cross before they get cleared to play in tomorrow's game," said McLellan. "We're anticipating that could happen, but before they say they're in or out, I don't have enough information right now to tell you that."

"I'm anticipating they're going to be cleared, but I'm not in a position to clear them for that. We don't know how they're going to feel after practice or how they're going to feel in the morning and what the doctors will decide. It all comes down to that."
