Edmonton Oilers forward Adam Henrique has been ruled out for Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinal series versus the visiting the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday due to a lower-body injury.

Connor Brown will draw into the lineup in place of Henrique, who missed the series opener due to a lower-body injury and logged only 11:38 of ice time in Game 2. The best-of-seven series between the Oilers and Canucks is tied at one victory apiece.

Henrique, 34, contributed one goal and one assist in Edmonton’s five-game first-round series victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

Acquired in a March 6 trade, Henrique posted 51 points (24 goals, 27 assists) in 82 games with the Anaheim Ducks and Oilers in the 2023-24 season.

The 14-year veteran has produced 530 points (263 goals, 267 assists) over 912 career games with the New Jersey Devils, Ducks and Oilers.
