Laurent Brossoit will start for Edmonton on Sunday.

This will be Brossoit's second start in as many days, but the Oilers are leaning on him while Cam Talbot is sidelined. Brossoit has a 2-5-1 record, 3.52 GAA, and .880 save percentage in 10 contests this season.

Yohann Auvitu scored his second of the season Saturday.

The defenseman was highly touted last year when the Devils signed him as a 27-year-old UFA from Finland but it did not work out as hoped for there. But the Oilers inked him in the off-season to a one-year deal and he made the team out of camp as their seventh defenseman. He has five points in 15 games thus far after a two goal, four point performance in 25 games last season. He does have upside if he is able to get a real chance including some power play time.

Jujhar Khaira scored two goals as the Edmonton Oilers routed the Montreal Canadiens 6-2 on Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

Khaira scored once in the first and added another in the second, contributing to Carey Price's removal from the game. He now has five goals and nine assists in 16 games so far this season. He is on a bit of a hot streak, with five points in his last four games.
Dec 9 - 11:39 PM

Laurent Brossoit stopped 22 of the 24 shots he faced on Saturday night as the Edmonton Oilers routed the Montreal Canadiens 6-2 at the Bell Centre.

Brossoit notched his second victory of the season in place of the injured Cam Talbot. He was solid, improving his record to 2-5-1 with a 3.52 goals-against average and a .880 save percentage. He is in a tough spot filling in on an Oilers team that is struggling to save its season.

Drake Caggiula is a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against Montreal.

He has four goals, three assists and a minus-8 rating in 20 contests this season. Eric Gryba and Anton Slepyshev will also serve as healthy scratches tonight.
Dec 9 - 7:24 PM

Cam Talbot (upper body) was on the ice again Saturday.

"We're going to take our time with him, but I think he's getting closer," coach Todd McLellan said. Laurent Brossoit will make his fourth consecutive start on Saturday night against Montreal in Talbot's absence.
Dec 9 - 4:45 PM

Nathan Walker will play his first game with Edmonton on Saturday night.

Walker is projected to skate alongside Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Strome against Montreal. Edmonton claimed Walker off waivers from Washington earlier this month.
Dec 9 - 4:40 PM

Laurent Brossoit will be between the pipes on Saturday night against Montreal.

Brossoit has a 1-5-1 record this season and he has won once in three previous starts since Cam Talbot went down due to injury. He has a 3.71 goals-against average and .877 save percentage in nine appearances this season.
Dec 9 - 11:41 AM

Adam Larsson (upper body) missed Friday's practice.

Larsson is expected to be absent for his fourth consecutive game on Saturday. He has three goals and four points in 25 contests this season.
Dec 9 - 5:05 AM

Cam Talbot (upper body) skated prior to Friday's practice.

Talbot did some drills before the Oilers began their morning skate. He's making progress, but won't be ready for Saturday's game.
Dec 9 - 5:02 AM

Brandon Davidson is looking forward to playing against his former team, the Montreal Canadiens, on Saturday.

Davidson had an assist in 13 games with Montreal before the Canadiens put him on waivers on Dec. 2. He was claimed by Edmonton and Saturday's contest should be his first game since then. He's projected to play on a pairing with Yohann Auvitu. "When I was picked up that was the one (possible date with the Canadiens) that I noticed right away," said Davidson. "Maybe I’ve got something to prove a bit. But, hey, I’m just glad to get into a game, get my rhythm back, and it just happens to be my old team."
Dec 9 - 5:00 AM

Based on Thursday's practice pairings, it looks like Brandon Davidson will draw into the Oilers' lineup on Saturday.

It would be Davidson's first game with Edmonton since he was claimed off waivers from Montreal on Dec. 3. Davidson had an assist in 13 games with the Canadiens. If Davidson does play, he will likely be paired with Yohann Auvitu.
Dec 8 - 4:16 AM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins found the back of the net in Edmonton's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia Wednesday night.

Nugent-Hopkins has scored a goal in three of his last four games. That brings him up to 11 goals and 20 points in 28 contests. This is turning into a great season for him, especially in contrast to his 43-point 2016-17 campaign.
Dec 7 - 9:21 AM

Patrick Maroon registered an assist in the Flyers' 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Wednesday.

Maroon has eight goals and 16 points in 28 games in 2017-18. That puts him on pace for about 47 points, which would be a modest step up from his performance last season. He might not be able to quite maintain his current pace, but he should reach the 20-goal and 40-point milestones as long as he stays healthy.
Dec 7 - 9:19 AM

Mike Cammalleri posted an assist and one shot on goal across 11:43 of ice time in Wednesday's loss against Philadelphia.

Cammalleri has managed back-to-back points for the first time since coming over to the Oilers from the Kings, but his ice time was actually his lowest total in nine games with the team. The team needed an injection of offense, but he has no goals and just four assists since moving to Edmonton. Instead of solving their offensive problems, he has simply joined the mix.
