There’s no need for any alarm bells over Anton Slepyshev’s off-season ankle injury. “It’s not serious. He may miss part of training camp,” said Edmonton Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli, who was made aware the top 9 right-winger had hurt his foot in training, but the Russian forward has already been examined by their medical personnel and there’s nothing major wrong. Slepyshev had a strong playoff last spring in the Oilers’ first trip to the post-season in 11 years, silencing a San Jose crowd with a nifty breakaway goal in the series clinching first-round matchup with the Sharks. He figures to be a second- or third-line right-winger on Oilers head coach Todd McLellan’s depth chart.
