Hendricks was activated from injured reserve, and will play Saturday against the Kings. Hendricks has missed the Oilers' last three games with a foot injury, but returned to practice Friday, and will draw back into Edmonton's lineup for Saturday night's tilt against L.A. Hendricks has tallied two points (one goal, one assist) in seven games this season.
Hendricks (foot) was on the ice for practice Friday, reports Oilers web site. There is no word yet on whether or not Hendricks will be able to play Saturday against the Kings but this is certainly a step in the right direction.
Hendricks (foot) won't play Thursday against the Coyotes. Thursday will mark the 10th total game Hendricks has missed with a foot injury that landed the 34-year-old forward on injured reserve earlier this season. The Oilers recalled Anton Slepyshev on Thursday, indicating Hendricks will likely once again be placed on injured reserve with his nagging foot injury. If that's the case, he will be eligible to return to the Oilers' lineup as soon as Saturday against L.A., although Edmonton will likely hold the veteran winger out of action until he has fully recovered from the ailment.
Hendricks (foot) will not play Wednesday against the Ducks, Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal reports. It appears Hendricks is dealing with some lingering issues with the foot that forced him to injured reserve earlier in the season. As a result, he will miss his second straight game Thursday, though the previous was reportedly a healthy scratch, and Luke Gazdic will instead draw into the lineup. Hendricks' next chance to return will come Thursday against the Coyotes.
Hendricks (undisclosed) is questionable to play in Wednesday night's road contest against the Ducks. Hendricks hasn't played in many games this season as he has battled the injury bug, but he tallied one goal and one assist through seven contests he has suited up for. Luke Gazdic will likely take Hendricks' spot in the lineup if he isn't able to play.
