  • Oilers' Philip Broberg: Gets on scoresheet with helper

    Broberg provided an assist in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Broberg's secondary helper on a Derek Ryan goal in the first period was the former's first point in seven games this season. The 21-year-old Broberg has added 11 blocked shots, five hits, three shots on goal and a minus-2 rating. He's mainly seeing just third-pairing minutes, but he's played consistently since his call-up, leaving Ryan Murray in a reserve role.

  • Oilers' Dylan Holloway: Adds assist in big win

    Holloway produced an assist in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Holloway saw 15:05 of ice time in the blowout win, his second-highest total of the year. It's unlikely to be a regular occurrence, but with the Oilers looking for any chemistry among their depth scorers, he could be due for more playing time. The rookie winger is at one goal, three assists, 14 shots on net, 36 hits and a minus-5 rating through 23 outings.

  • Oilers' Darnell Nurse: Generates assist Wednesday

    Nurse posted an assist and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Nurse helped out on the first of Connor McDavid's two goals in the third period. With a goal and an assist in four games to begin December, Nurse is still providing fairly steady offense. This blowout win allowed him some rest -- he played just 18:15 in the contest, the first time he's been under 20 minutes all year. The blueliner has put up 15 points, 56 shots on net, 48 blocked shots, 44 hits, 26 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 27 appearances.

After a one-game absence with an undisclosed injury, this kind of blowout win allowed Hyman to be eased back into action with 16:11 of ice time. He has eight assists over his last five outings, and the 30-year-old winger is now at 27 points (nine tallies, 18 helpers), 96 shots, 31 hits and a plus-4 rating in 26 contests overall.

    Barrie has posted four assists over his last three games, and three of those helpers have been with the man advantage. The 31-year-old blueliner continues to quarterback the top unit for Edmonton -- it's where he's earned 10 of his 17 points on the season.

  • Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Adds two more points

    Draisaitl picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 8-2 win over Arizona.

    Draisaitl scored a power-play goal in the second period before adding an assist on a Connor McDavid tally in the third. It's the fourth multi-point effort for Draisaitl in his last five games.

  • Oilers' Klim Kostin: Logs two points

    Kostin recorded a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Kostin picked up an assist on Derek Ryan's first-period tally before scoring a goal of his own in the third, beating Connor Ingram with a wrist shot following an Arizona turnover. The 23-year-old winger now has two goals and an assist through his first 11 games with Edmonton. Once a top prospect with St. Louis, Kostin offers some intriguing upside, but it's hard to trust him to provide consistent offense on the Oilers' fourth line.

  • Oilers' Stuart Skinner: Slated to start

    Skinner is on track to start between the pipes in Wednesday's home game versus the Coyotes, Tony Brar of Oilers TV reports.

    Skinner was excellent in his last start Monday against the Capitals, turning aside a whopping 47 of 50 shots, but he still came away with a loss due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. The 24-year-old netminder will try to get back in the win column in a favorable home matchup with a struggling Arizona team that's lost five straight games.

    Draisaitl registered a minus-2 rating during Monday's 3-2 loss to the visiting Capitals.

The 27-year-old center was left off a scoresheet for just the fourth time in 26 games this season.
