      Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Will return Wednesday

      Korpikoski (head) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Blackhawks. Korpikoski has been sidelined since Oct. 27 with the head injury, but it appears he's finally past the issue. The Oilers will need to make a roster move to accommodate his return, but that will likely come at some point Wednesday. Korpikoski will likely slot in on either the third or fourth line.

      Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Skates Monday

Korpikoski was placed on injured reserve nearly two weeks ago with a head injury, but he appears to be progressing back to game action. He remains without a definitive timetable, and head injuries can be unpredictable, but it's an encouraging sign that he was able to return to the ice.

      Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Placed on IR Tuesday

      Korpikoski (head) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. The 29-year-old winger had been playing on the bottom lines for the Oilers, but it appears he is going to need more time to recover from the head injury he sustained on October 27 in a game against the Wild. It is unclear at this time how long he will be out for.

      Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Out Saturday

      Korpikoski (head) will not play Saturday against Calgary, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports. Earlier reports indicated Korpikoski would be available for Saturday's tilt against the Flames, but the 29-year-old apparently wasn't feeling up to the task shortly before pregame warmups. Anton Slepyshev will draw into the Oilers' lineup in Korpikoski's absence, who will hope to return to action Tuesday against the Flyers.

      Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Will play Saturday

      Korpikoski (head) will return to Edmonton's lineup Saturday against the Flames, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports. Korpikoski was held out of Thursday's game against Montreal with the ailment, but was able to participate in Saturday's morning skate, and is set to return to action Saturday night against Calgary. The 29-year-old has tallied three points (two goals, one assist) in 10 games this season, and will likely slot in as a bottom-six forward Saturday against the Flames.

      Oilers' Lauri Korpikoski: Misses Thursday skate

      Korpikoski didn't skate Thursday as he's still feeling the effects of a hit to the head in Tuesday's game against the Wild, per Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports. The severity of the injury is not clear at this point, but we believe the team will release more concrete details in the coming days. Korpikoski is a versatile winger who can be used in a number of different situations, including the penalty kill. He's usually good for 20-25 points each season, further cementing his reputation as a solid, but unspectacular all-around skater.

      News: Lauri Korpikoski was traded to the Oilers on Tuesday in exchange for center Boyd Gordon.
      Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski was often miscast as a second-line player during his time with the Coyotes, but he should settle into a more natural third- or fourth-line role with Edmonton. The winger recorded six goals and 21 points in an injury-plagued 69 games in the desert last season.

      Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski will only have missed 13 games on the season, but he's dealt with a number of injuries of every turn that have made him less reliable for fantasy owners. Of course, those who might have rostered Korpikoski probably only did so out of desperation, as the six goals, 21 points, and minus-27 rating he supplied didn't exactly make him a trendy waiver-wire pickup.
