Oilers Update - Eberle Out 2-3 Weeks - Brule to Yotes

The Edmonton Oilers announced that leading scorer Jordan Eberle will be out for 2-3 weeks with an knee injury.  MRI results revealed that the Oilers star has a right knee sprain after getting tangled with Jaime Benn last Saturday in Dallas.

"It's a lot better news than I expected...I think it kinda got extended and then with the extra push on the guy's (Benn) skate and then my knee buckled in a bit and I think I knew right away that something was wrong." said Jordan Eberle to the media.

Eberle tops the Oilers in scoring with 43 points in 41 games and becomes the 6th and latest casualty for the Oilers at the moment.  Less than 2 weeks ago Ryan Nugent-Hopkins went down with a shoulder injury while Tom Gilbert crahsed heavily into the boards thanks to Dan Carcillo.  

Gilbert Brule was claimed off re-entry waivers from the Phoenix Coyotes this afternoon.  The 25 year-old played spent three seasons with Oilers but has spent his entire year with the Oklahoma Barons.
