Insight: His first goal came on March 1. The veteran defenseman has been a healthy scratch for much of this season but he could be earning himself more playing time with his recent performance.

Description: Ryan Whitney is expected to be out of the Oilers' lineup for at least another week with a sprained right knee. TSN
Insight: The fact that Whitney is expected to miss only another week is encouraging, but he has been slowed by the bad knee for several seasons. He has already missed nine games this season because of the injury while playing in only four games.

Description: Ryan Whitney is unlikely to be in the Oilers' lineup for Thursday's game against Washington. TSN
Insight: Whitney left Tuesday's game against Vancouver with a knee injury when he appeared to hit a rut in the ice. The injury may be a complication resulting from his surgically repaired ankle that forced him to miss time both last season and this season.

Description: Ryan Whitney is expected to make his season debut for the Oilers on Tuesday against Calgary. TSN
Insight: Whitney has been sidelined since late December because of ankle surgery, so his minutes will probably be limited on Tuesday. The Oilers' defense is thin, so Whitney should help significantly (27 points and +13 in 35 games last season).

Description: Ryan Whitney will miss the rest of the regular season after undergoing surgery on his ankle on Monday. Edmonton Journal
Insight: At this stage, only owners in keeper formats should retain Whitney. Tom Gilbert and Kurtis Foster should benefit from increased power-play time as a result of Whitney's injury.

Description: According to Hockey Night in Canada, Ryan Whitney will undergo surgery on his injured ankle on Monday. Edmonton Oilers
Insight: Ankle surgery would likely mean that Whitney's season is over. Check back for official word from the Oilers, but this doesn't sound promising for Whitney owners.
 
12/30/2010 6:00:00 PM
Description: Ryan Whitney will be out of the Oilers' lineup at least a month with an ankle injury. Edmonton Journal
Insight: The one month appears to be a minimum time frame, as Whitney needs to wait for the swelling in his ankle to subside. He will see a specialist soon to see if surgery is needed, in which case he would be sidelined awhile longer.
