EDMONTON — The Edmonton Oilers have activated defenceman Adam Larsson from injured reserve.

Larsson has missed Edmonton's last eight games with an upper-body injury.

He will be available for Edmonton's game tonight against visiting San Jose.

Edmonton posted a 4-4-0 record over Larsson's injury stint.

Larsson has three goals and an assist in 25 games this season.

The six-foot-three, 210-pound blueliner leads all Oilers defencemen with 90 hits.

The Oilers assigned forward Anton Slepyshev to the American Hockey League's (AHL) Bakersfield Condors in a corresponding move.
