      Oilers' Andrej Sekera: Likely out Friday

      Sekera (illness) likely won't play Friday against the Devils, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports. If Sekera is unable to go Friday, Eric Gryba will likely replace him in the Oilers' lineup, with Oscar Klefbom potentially sliding up to skate alongside Darnell Nurse on Edmonton's top pairing in the contest.

    • Oilers Ink Sekera To Six-Year Deal

      News: Andrej Sekera signed a six-year, $33 million contract with the Oilers on Wednesday, TSN's Aaron Ward reports.
      Analysis: It's a steep price to pay for a defenseman likely entering the back end of his career, but the Oilers have been desperate for help on the back end for years, and Andrej Sekera certainly qualifies as an upgrade. He struggled to make an impact for the Kings last season after coming over in a trade from the Hurricanes prior to the deadline, resulting in him finishing the season with a rather pedestrian total of 20 points in 73 games. The Oilers won't count on Sekera to be a driving force of their offense, but he'll provide a stabilizing presence in the team's top-four defense ranks to accompany Oscar Klefbom and Justin Schultz.
    • Sekera Will Not Return To Kings

      News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) will not return to the Kings next season, ESPN's Craig Custance reports.
      Analysis: After acquiring Milan Lucic in a trade with the Bruins on Friday, the Kings no longer have enough cap room to sign Andrej Sekera to a new deal. It's unfortunate for the Kings, as they traded Roland McKeown and a 2015 first-round draft pick in exchange for Sekera in February. Sekera only played a total of 16 games for the Kings this season, as he was held out of the team's last six contests due to injury. He should be ready for the start of his new team's training camp in September.
    • Kings' Sekera Out For Final Two Games

      News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) will not play in the Kings' final two games of the regular season, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: Andrej Sekera hasn't been practicing with the team since suffering the injury last week Monday against the Blackhawks. Should the Kings qualify for the playoffs, it's far from guaranteed that Sekera would be able to suit up for any of their first-round games.
    • Kings' Sekera May Miss Rest of Regular Season

      News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) is not expected to return to action during the regular season, Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times reports.
      Analysis: Assuming the report is accurate, Andrej Sekera will miss the Kings' final five regular season games due to a lower-body injury. L.A. will likely have to recall a defender from AHL Manchester in order to acquire some much needed depth at the blue line. Sekera will hope that the Kings can manage to secure a spot in the playoffs during his five-game absence.
    • Kings' Sekera Seems Unlikely To Play Thursday

      News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) didn't practice Wednesday and seems unlikely to play Thursday against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: Coach Darryl Sutter didn't fully divulge the extent of Andrej Sekera's injury, but seemed to suggest the Kings weren't counting on having him back within the next couple of days. Sekera will have a check-in with a doctor later Wednesday, which could better clarify a potential return timetable.
    • Kings' Sekera Sidelined

      News: Andrej Sekera is sidelined with a lower-body injury, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: While there's no timetable for a potential return for Andrej Sekera, it's safe to rule him out for Thursday's game against the Oilers. As a result, Alec Martinez skated with Robyn Regehr at practice Wednesday, while Brayden McNabb was paired with Matt Greene.
    • Kings' Sekera Suffers Lower-Body Injury

      News: Andrej Sekera suffered a lower-body injury in the second period of Monday's game against the Blackhawks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
      Analysis: Andrej Sekera said he sustained the injury when another player fell on his leg during the contest. The extent of Sekera's setback is uncertain, but more will be known about his status after he is examined by team doctors Tuesday.
