Matt Benning News
Benning (illness) will not play Tuesday vs. Carolina.
Benning was a healthy scratch on Saturday but was expected to draw back into the lineup tonight vs. the Hurricanes. However, he is under the weather so Yohan Auvitu will remain in the lineup and Kris Russell will likely see power-play time on the second unit.
The Oilers have placed Matthew Benning (undisclosed) on IR.
Benning left after playing just 4:15 TOI in last night’s loss in Carolina. Benin’s injury will keep him out for at least seven days, so the Oilers placed him on IR to create a roster spot to recall Jordan Oesterle.
