Tyler Pitlick (lacerated spleen) took part in some of Monday's practice.
Pitlick hasn't been cleared for contact. There's no guarantee that he'll return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign, but he remains optimistic. "Everything is feeling good, I haven't been in any pain in a while, so that part is going good," said Pitlick. "And I'm getting on the ice. I just have to wait for my next scan and make sure everything is healed up and then I'll be able to take contact." Feb 24 - 10:14 AM

Tyler Pitlick (lacerated spleen) might not return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Pitlick will need to wait a month before he can start exercising and is still three months away from being cleared for contact drills. So while it's still theoretically possible that Pitlick will play again this season, given that the Oilers aren't going to make the playoffs, his primary concern should be getting in the best shape possible for the 2015-16 campaign.

Tyler Pitlick suffered a lacerated spleen on Wednesday.

Pitlick was placed on the injured reserve list. It's not clear how long he'll be out for, but we wouldn't expect him to return when he's eligible to be activated in just under a week. The Oilers called up Anton Lander to help fill the void.
Jan 2 - 9:11 AM

Tyler Pitlick will begin Sunday's game on a line with Mark Arcobello and David Perron.

Pitlick had been seeing action on the top line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall but will be replaced on the top unit by Teddy Purcell. Pitlick loses any fantasy value he may have had on the top line and now it looks like Purcell gets a tick up on his fantasy value. Pitlick will see some power play time in front of the net as well on Sunday.

Tyler Pitlick scored his first goal of the season to get Edmonton on the board Friday night, they still lost 4-2.

Pitlick collected the loose puck by the offensive blue line after Ryan Nugent-Hopkins caused a turnover by sending Ducks defender Cam Fowler into his bench, and he ripped a pretty snapper by Andersen to make it 3-1 late in the second. With three shots, three hits, 43% faceoff wins, and his second career goal in 12:38 of ice time, it was a pretty good night for the Oilers' leader in +/-.

Tyler Pitlick will get a chance to play on Edmonton's first line on Wednesday.

The Oilers are trying to snap a 10-game losing streak, so they're trying to make some bold moves. Pitlick has a goal and no assists in 12 career NHL games, but he does have some offensive upside. "It's time for me to make a step. I think I'm ready," Pitlick said. His linemates will be Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall.

Tyler Pitlick sustained a knee injury when he blocked a shot against Anaheim on Friday, but he may not miss any action.

The Oilers have a few forwards that are questionable for Thursday's game, so they needed some insurance. Pitlick has eight goals and 22 points in 38 contests in 2013-14.

Tyler Pitlick scored his first goal of the season on Saturday but then suffered a knee injury and did not return.

Pitlick was selected 31st overall in the 2010 Draft and has a chance to crack the Oilers lineup this season on a permanent basis. He had a tough 2012-13 season as he suffered a concussion early in the season and then missed two months late in the year with a knee injury. The goal was the first of his NHL career but consider him day-to-day for now.

Tyler Pitlick is still in Edmonton Oilers training camp.

Pitlick had a tough campaign in the AHL last season as he suffered a concussion early in the season and then missed two months with a knee injury. Pitlick was healthy enough to play in 16 playoff games as he chipped in with two goals and four assists. He will benefit from another season in the minors as he eventually could be a serviceable bottom six forward in the NHL.

Oilers prospect Tyler Pitlick has had a trying season in the AHL.

The 20-year-old forward registered only two assists in 14 games this season before suffering a concussion. Despite the hard luck, Pitlick is an intriguing player who could find himself in the NHL at some point down the road. His high energy style of play could make him a useful third-liner in the bigs. Keep an eye on him in keeper formats.
