Cam Talbot will be the Oilers' starter on Friday.
Talbot has only played twice this month. It might be related to the fact that he's allowed at least three goals in each of his last six starts, including 13 goals in his last three games.
Jujhar Khaira has been called up by the Edmonton Oilers.
Khaira has three goals and seven points in 16 AHL contests in 2015-16. He's not expected to have any fantasy value in standard leagues during his stint with Edmonton.
Christian Thomas has been promoted by the Montreal Canadiens.
Thomas has seven goals and 14 points in 18 AHL games this season. The 23-year-old forward has played in 21 career NHL contests and has scored one goal over that span.
Dustin Tokarski has been called up by the Montreal Canadiens.
No surprise there. Carey Price has been sidelined once again, so Tokarski is back with Montreal. Although Tokarski has spent a fair amount of time with Montreal so far, he still has just 20 minutes worth of playing time in the NHL this season.
Jiri Hudler will draw into the lineup on Friday.
Hudler was dealing with an illness, but he was available on Tuesday and the Flames still opted not to use him. He has four goals and 13 points in 20 contests this season.
Karri Ramo will start for Calgary on Friday.
It will be Ramo's 12th consecutive start. He has a 3.12 GAA and .898 save percentage in 14 contests this season.
Justin Schultz (back) is probable for Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.
We'll take that to also mean that Schultz isn't likely to return on Friday against Detroit. He has an assist in nine games this season.
Carey Price (leg) is expected to be out for at least a week, per the Canadiens.
It's worth noting that Montreal gave the same estimate after Price first went onto the sidelines with this injury and he ended up missing three weeks. Of course, just because that's how it played out last time doesn't mean that history will repeat itself, but it highlights that we don't really know if this will be a relatively short-term absence or not.
