Slepyshev (lower-body) is expected to return to the Oilers lineup on Sunday.

Slepyshev has missed the last eight games with a lower-body injury, but he is listed as “probable” for Sunday’s game in Boston. Slepyshev is expected to skate on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Patrick Maroon tonight and comes into play with two points (1G / 1A) in 10 games this season.

Slepyshev is expected to draw into the Oilers lineup following a conditioning stint with Bakersfield (AHL).

Slepyshev appeared in one game with the Condors during his conditioning stint and is expected to play Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Milan Lucic in his season debut. Slepyshev had four goals and six assists (10 points) in 41 games with the Oilers last season.

Slepyshev could start the season in the Oilers top-6.

Slepyshev will play on a line with Connor McDavid and Taylor Hall in the Oilers’ final preseason game. Slepyshev has two goals (both GWG) and two assists in six game this preseason. The 21-year-old had 15 goals and 10 assists (25 points) in 58 games with Ufa Salivate Yulayev (KHL) last season. If he does in fact start the season on that line, he makes for a speculative add in standard leagues.
