The stout Finnish winger finds himself on IR.

The Oilers Twitter account today announced that Lennart Petrell was back in the lineup and Teemu Hartikainen has been placed on Injured Reserve:

Petrell recovered from a concussion due to a puck to the head during warm-ups against Colorado, while Hartikainen's injury has not been announced.

Hartikainen did suffer soreness in his shoulder after being hit last Saturday against Colorado. He played just 8:33 and didn't return. But Hartikainen skated in practice the next day and didn't miss any time due to injury. In fact, Hartikainen contributed the game-tying power play goal in Edmonton against Phoenix on Saturday, a goal which sent the game into overtime, where the Oilers eventually won in a shootout.

Petrell will skate on the fourth line with Nail Yakupov and Chris Vandevelde.
