Andrej Sekera (foot) returned to action on Saturday.

Sekera picked up an assist Saturday but it was only his fifth in 31 games this season. The defenseman had eight goals and 38 points last season but injuries have taken their toll and it is probable that he is not owned in your fantasy league. Don't overlook him next season.
Mar 25 - 2:27 AM

Andrej Sekera left Sunday's game early after blocking a shot and injuring his foot.

The injury bug has affected Sekera this season as this will be the third time he has missed action due to injury. The defenseman started the season on the injured list and did not return until just before Christmas after undergoing ACL surgery in the off-season. He then missed seven games with a facial injury in February and now this. Sekera has only four assists in 30 games this season after an eight goal and 35 point season last year.
Mar 19 - 8:04 AM

The Edmonton Oilers have activated Andrej Sekera (face) from injured reserve.

The injury has kept him out of the lineup for the last seven games. He has no goals, one assist and a minus-10 rating in 18 games this season. Sekera is an important part of Edmonton's defense, but he doesn't need to be owned in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 24 - 3:48 PM

Andrej Sekera (face) participated in Tuesday's morning skate.

Sekera might be ready to return as early as Thursday versus the Colorado Avalanche. If he isn't available to play by then he might come back during Edmonton's upcoming three-game road trip.
Feb 20 - 5:51 PM

Andrej Sekera, who was struck in the face by the puck on Feb. 9, doesn't have any broken bones, but he might have a concussion.

As previously reported, Sekera is on the injured reserve list now. He has been sidelined for two contests. This has been a rough campaign for Sekera, who has been able to play in just 18 games this season. If he does have a concussion then there will likely be no telling as to when he might return.
Feb 15 - 4:42 AM

Andrej Sekera (face) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Sekera has missed Edmonton's last two games. He has an assist in 18 contests this season.
Feb 14 - 2:55 PM

Andrej Sekera has been ruled out for Monday's game against Florida.

Coach Todd McLellan is hopeful that a few more days of recovery will help make Sekera available to play during Edmonton's upcoming road trip.
Feb 12 - 2:04 PM

Andrej Sekera is doubtful Monday with a facial injury.

Sekera left Friday's game after he was hit in the face in the first period and did not return. Sekera also missed Saturday's contest and looks to be day-to-day for now. Sekera has only one assist in 18 games this season as he returned after missing the first half of the season due to off-season ACL surgery. It was thought he would be more involved offensively as he had eight goals and 38 points last season but that has not happened yet.
Feb 12 - 7:28 AM

Andrej Sekera will be scratched Sunday afternoon.

Jan 7 - 2:59 PM

Andrej Sekera (knee) has been activated from injured reserve and he will make his season debut on Thursday night.

Sekera suffered a torn ACL during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs and he underwent surgery in May. In 80 games last year, he potted eight goals and earned 35 points. He could be worth an addition with Oscar Klefbom out of the lineup, but there could be some rust.

There's a good chance that Andrej Sekera (knee) will be available on Thursday.

Sekera still needs to be medically cleared, but his showing in Wednesday's practice was encouraging. "I feel as good as I need to feel to be playing at this level," Sekera said. "I’m ready. I’ll go out, play hard and try to help this team win a game." He hasn't been able to play yet in 2017-18, which has been a big issue for the Oilers as they counted on him to log an average of 21:29 minutes per game last season.

Andrej Sekera (knee) has been practicing with the team of late and could return to the lineup shortly.

Sekera has not played this season after undergoing off-season surgery on his knee for a torn ACL. He had eight goals and 38 points with a plus-14 rating last season and his presence on the blueline has been sorely missed. "I’m feeling much better," Sekera said. "I’ve been testing the knee in battles, starting to go full out in battles. Testing the knee and seeing how it reacts. I’m doing more and more on the ice and the same things in the gym before and after. I’m going to make sure I stay on top of it. The prognosis was end of December, start of January, but it depends on how it reacts to everything I do on the ice. Is it going to be pain free or there’s going to be any trouble? We’ll go from there."

Andrej Sekera (knee) was able to practice with the Oilers on Monday.

Despite that, Sekera is nowhere near close to returning. "When the calendar changes and we get to December, then we’ll be talking about when Sekera might play," said Oilers coach Todd McLellan. Sekera is recovering from knee surgery for a torn ACL.
