The Edmonton Oilers are going to be without their leading scorer for a while longer.  The team placed Ales Hemsky on the Injured Reserve list Friday, and activated Steve MacIntyre to take his spot on the roster.

Hemsky suffered a concussion on Dec. 28 against Nashville, and has missed five games since then.  In 34 games this season, Hemsky has 10 goals and 25 assists.

MacIntyre will return to the Edmonton lineup after missing 26 games with a fractured orbital bone.  He has no points and 24 penalty minutes in 10 games this season.
