Koskinen is expected back between the pipes on the road versus Vegas on Friday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

With Mike Smith (leg) on injured reserve, the Oilers are set to roll with Koskinen in both ends of a back-to-back after playing against Arizona on Thursday. Fortunately for the netminder, Edmonton will have four days off following the tilt with the Golden Knights, which should give him plenty of time to recover. Until Smith is cleared to return, Koskinen should see the bulk of the action with Stuart Skinner serving as the No. 2 option.
