  • Neal was placed on waivers Tuesday in order to buy out his contract, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports. Neal found himself periodically serving as a healthy scratch this season and was limited to just 29 regular-season appearances in which he generated five goals and five assists. Still, the veteran winger extended his personal playoff streak to 11 straight seasons, which is incredibly impressive considering he accomplished that feat with five different franchises. While his $5.75 million cap hit was certainly cost-prohibitive given his production last year, Neal will certainly sign on the dotted line somewhere ahead of the 2021-22 campaign and could be a decent mid-range fantasy option.

  • Neal produced an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canadiens. Neal has gotten on the scoresheet in three straight games, notching a goal and two assists in that span. The 33-year-old winger is up to 10 points, 50 shots on net, 25 hits and a minus-2 rating through 28 contests. He could be in the mix for bottom-six minutes and power-play usage during the Oilers' playoff run.

  • Neal scored a goal on five shots and had two PIM in a 4-3 overtime win over Montreal on Monday. Neal collected a loose puck along the goal line and stuffed it past Montreal netminder Jake Allen to get the Oilers on the board midway through the first period. It was the fifth goal of the year for the veteran Neal, who showed good chemistry on Edmonton's fourth line with Ryan McLeod and Alex Chiasson.

  • Neal provided a power-play assist and two hits in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canucks. Neal set up the first of Leon Draisaitl's two goals in the contest, which was the latter's 500th NHL point. The 33-year-old Neal hasn't found much success this season with eight points, 43 shots on net and 25 hits through 26 contests. He's been limited to mainly bottom-six duties when he makes the lineup.

  • Neal was promoted to the active roster ahead of Thursday's game versus the Canucks. Neal will take the place of Tyler Ennis, who was moved to the taxi squad in a corresponding move. Look for the 33-year-old Neal to work in a third-line role.
