Edmonton Oilers goaltender Mike Smith and forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins are day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

Smith made his return to the lineup this past Wednesday after missing more than two months with an undisclosed injury. The 39-year-old struggled in both starts since returning and allowed a combined 10 goals.

Edmonton recalled goaltender Ilya Konovalov from the team’s taxi squad under emergency conditions and re-assigned defenceman Philip Broberg from the taxi squad to the AHL’s Bakersfield Condors.
