Share post:

Edmonton Oilers forward Adam Henrique is set to return from a seven-game absence on Monday night.

Henrique will replace Ryan McLeod in the lineup as the Oilers host the Dallas Stars in Game 3 of the Western Conference final. The best-of-seven series is tied at 1-1.

Henrique, 34, has not played since Game 2 of the second-round series against the Vancouver Canucks on May 10 due to a suspected ankle injury. He had been listed with a lower-body injury after scoring one goal with one assist in six games this postseason.

Henrique, who was acquired in a trade with the Anaheim Ducks on March 6, recorded 51 points (24 goals, 27 assists) in 82 regular-season games with the Ducks and Oilers.

He has 530 career points (263 goals, 267 assists) in 912 games with the New Jersey Devils, Ducks and Oilers. He has 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in 34 career postseason contests.

McLeod, 24, has yet to score a point in 14 games this postseason after tallying 30 points (12 goals, 18 assists) in 81 games during the regular season.
