Good morning everyone, here we go.

To Start, Oilers’ forward Tobias Rieder will be out for a month due to an upper body injury. (Sportsnet)

Because Rieder will be out that long, the Oilers have called up Patrick Russell from the Bakersfield Condors. (Copper&Blue)

Legacy wrote a very nice fanpost about the Oilers, the NHL, and Optics on this site. Yes, fanposts are a thing we do here, and you should feel encouraged to use them any time you have something to say. (Copper&Blue)

Tyler Dellow looks into Milan Lucic and comes to the conclusion that even with his mostly buyout-proof contract, he should be bought out. I disagree, I suggest paying him his money through a front office job to convince him to retire instead. If you’re paying the actual money, there’s no reason for it to count against the cap. (The Athletic)

Lastly, Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey has been fined for his body-slamming infraction. (The Sporting News)

That’s all for now, enjoy your weekend.
