Edmonton has placed Matt Hendricks on injured reserve after blocking a shot in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Calgary Flames.  Recently promoted to first line duties alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall, the injury kept Hendricks out of Sunday's game against Vancouver in favour of Anton Slepyshev.  No real word has been given on a timetable for Hendricks, though it's a fair bet he'll be out more than a game or two if he's on IR.

IT'S (ANDREW) MILLER TIME

Andrew Miller had a cup of coffee with the big club late in the season last year.  In nine games, Miller put up six points (1-5-6), including a three point effort against Colorado late in March.  Miller also had the distinction of scoring his first career NHL goal on a penalty shot, which is a pretty good conversation starter.  With the Condors, Miller has three points (1-2-3) in four games this season.

Boy oh boy, I miss Jordan Eberle something fierce.
