      Oilers' Luke Gazdic: Activated from injured reserve

      Gazdic (illness) was activated off injured reserve Monday. Gazdic missed just the minimum one week after coming down with an illness and looks set to draw back into the lineup for Monday's contest against the Capitals. The club has yet to announce a corresponding roster move, but one will likely come before the start of Monday's tilt to clear the way for Gazdic to return.

      Oilers forward Luke Gazdic logged 8:04 of ice time and took one shot on net in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Blues. Gazdic had been dealing with an undisclosed injury that forced him to miss some practice time heading into Thursday's tilt, but the ailment is no longer an issue moving forward. Gazdic will likely once again suit up as a fourth-line winger for the Oilers in Saturday's matchup with the Predators.
