Per the Oklahoma City Barons Website:

The Edmonton Oilers recalled forward Josh Green and defenseman Colten Teubert from the Oklahoma City Barons, Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today.

Green will replace Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in the lineup and Teubert will replace Tom Gilbert after both suffered injuries against the Chicago Blackhawks last night.

Nugent-Hopkins, second on the Oilers in points through 38 games, was spotted in a sling after the game last night and coach Tom Renney said he wasn't an option against the Sabres tonight after injuring his shoulder. Gilbert, the Oilers leader in ice time by nearly four minutes per game, suffered an injury to his right knee according to Renney, and is rumored to have left the building on crutches and in a leg boot.

Corey Potter will likely replace Gilbert on the Oilers' top pairing with Ladislav Smid and Sam Gagner will likely draw in on the top power play to replace Nugent-Hopkins.
