The Oilers defense is in freefall, having allowed an astounding 18 goals in the last three games, so this move is likely in an attempt to shake things up and give Stanton a chance to prove himself where the rest of the defensive corps cannot.

Stanton is expected to miss several weeks after sustaining a broken foot, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Stanton was likely competing with Eric Gryba and Matt Benning for a spot on the third pairing, but he'll now have to face the prospect of sitting out for an extended time frame.

Stanton will likely be fighting for a spot on the Oilers' 23-man roster along with Eric Gryba. Last season, the 27-year-old Stanton failed to get onto the ice with Colorado, instead suiting up with AHL San Antonio and AHL Cleveland for the year. Considering the blueliner last tallied an NHL point back in 2014-15 with Vancouver, fantasy owners probably shouldn't be pinning their hopes on him suddenly becoming an offensive force in the league.

Coach Willie Desjardins said Tuesday that Stanton (lower body) is "really close" to a return.Stanton looks like he'll be held out of Tuesday's tilt with the Hurricanes, but after taking part in the team's morning skate, it seems like he could be a more realistic option for Thursday's showdown with the Habs.
