Neal hasn’t played since Jan. 29 due to the injury. It’s unclear who will be removed from the lineup in Neal’s place.
The 32-year-old was acquired from the Calgary Flames last summer and has 19 goals and 29 points in 50 games.
This will be the second-consecutive game the Oilers will get a key forward back from injury. In Monday’s win over the Nashville Predators, Kailer Yamamoto returned from an ankle ailment and collected two points.
The Oilers enter play Tuesday two points behind the Vegas Golden Knights for first in the Pacific Division.
