The heart and soul of the Oilers waits it out

Joanne Ireland reported on Sam Gagner's status via Twitter:

"Tenderness" A.K.A. pain, still exists in the affected area, so we wait in anticipation of the Oilers getting some much needed depth from injured reserve.

In his stead, Mark Arcobello has performed admirably, but Taylor Hall's injury has complicated matters.

When Gagner returns, expect him to slot in on the left wing initially, probably with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Jordan Eberle, before returning to the middle in place of Arcobello:

Sam Gagner - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle
David Perron - Mark Arcobello - Ales Hemsky
Tyler Pitlick - Boyd Gordon - Nail Yakupov
Ben Eager - Will Acton - Ryan Jones
