Oilers likely to look for d help

Pierre LeBrun was on Vancouver’s TSN 1040 when he was asked if the Oilers would be searching for defensive help now that Darnell Nurse will be on the shelf for up to 12 weeks following surgery on his right ankle to repair bone and ligament damage.

“Well, the thing is they’re going to get him back, so it’s not like you can take his salary,” noted LeBrun. “He’s going to come back and you’ll have to put him under the cap.

“I will tell you this – if they don’t find more consistency defensively, certainly over the next month, it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s an area they looked again,  yes.”
