The Oilers were back on the ice after a four-day Christmas break, but Andrej Sekera was noticeably absent. Sekera blocked a shot on his foot late in the San Jose game, and if he's out any period of time it would be a huge blow.

The Oilers defence has been able to play well despite injuries to Darnell Nurse, Brandon Davidson, Mark Fayne, Kris Russell and Eric Gryba and various times, but Sekera has been their best D-man all season and he'll be very hard to replace. After practice, Todd McLellan said Sekera reported back from the Christmas break feeling under the weather and they will see how he feels tomorrow.

New Year’s Eve is around the corner and one resolution for the Edmonton Oilers might just be to do everything in their power to become a playoff team. Good news, this team is in position already to that (crazy, I know). So the next step is to be more than a team that just makes it in and is happy to be there. This team should resolve itself to add another impactful player.

CGD: Canada looks to continue their hot start against Slovakia

Canada's opening day 5-3 victory over Russia showed us a couple of things. For starters, this year's Team Canada has a real shot at competing. The team is structured well with a team-based approach in their systems and having all five players on the same page while on the ice. The game also displayed the immense skill that Canada possesses. Dylan Strome, Tyson Jost, Matthew Barzal and Pierre Luc Dubois, among others, have the traits to become dominant players for Canada. 

While Canada did pull off a convincing victory over Russia, no indications have been made as to who will be the team's starting goaltender moving forward. Tonight, Connor Ingram will take the reigns from Connor Hart and start between the pipes as Canada faces off against Slovakia.

Puck drop is slated for 8pm ET and you can catch tonight's game and all the World Junior action on TSN.
