The Edmonton Oilers will get a boost to their offence Monday night as forward Kailer Yamamoto returns to the lineup after recovering from an ankle injury.

Yamamoto was hurt last week and listed as week-to-week, although will only miss three games ahead of Monday’s game against the Nashville Predators.

The 21-year-old has been a big boost to the Oilers since being recalled at the end of December with 21 points in 21 games.
