Nikolai Khabibulin has been put on injured reserve. The Oilers goaltender tweaked his groin in the shootout against Phoenix and again in overtime against Chicago.
Khabibulin is coming back to Edmonton for an MRI, but coach Ralph Krueger says he might re-join the Oilers later on their nine-game road trip. In the meantime, the Oilers have called up Yann Danis from Oklahoma City to back up Devan Dubnyk. (bd)
