Henrique’s return is a significant boost for the Oilers, who acquired him from the Anaheim Ducks at the trade deadline. The deal also included Sam Carrick, with the Ducks retaining 50% of Henrique’s salary. It’s not known who is coming out of the lineup, but ironically, it might be Carrick.

Despite not replicating his offensive numbers from earlier in the season with Anaheim, where he posted 51 points in 82 games, Henrique’s experience and skill are invaluable. Since joining Edmonton, he has contributed nine points (six goals, three assists) in 22 games. In the playoffs, he has tallied one goal and one assist in six games, although his ice time and overall effectiveness have been hampered by the injury.

Henrique’s Return for Game 3 Will Make Oilers Deeper

Henrique’s presence in the lineup allows the Oilers to better optimize their forward lines. If both remain in the lineup, Ryan McLeod is expected to shift to the wing, while Derek Ryan can revert to his role on the fourth line, enhancing the team’s depth and versatility.
