This morning, the Edmonton Oilers announced via their social media channels that the team has activated forward Devin Shore from the injured reserve and placed Brendan Perlini on waivers in order to clear the space needed to make it happen.

After missing the last month with an undisclosed lower-body injury suffered against the New York Rangers, Devin Shore is back and ready to be reinserted into the lineup and will hopefully provide a spark in the bottom-six. Before his injury, Shore got into eight of the team’s 10 games as the team’s fourth-line centre and looked like he was starting to establish himself as a viable option for that spot. Now that Ryan McLeod seems to have cemented his place in the lineup, I was curious to see where Shore would fit upon his return, and based on the line rushes from the morning skate, it looks like he’ll be starting at left-wing with Derek Ryan assuming the duties at centre.
