In a crucial update before game 7, Oilers' coach Kris Knoblauch announced that Adam Henrique will miss the game due to an injury.

This development comes after Henrique tried to persevere through a leg injury sustained in the Oilers' last game against the Los Angeles Kings. Despite his efforts, including playing one game against the Canucks, it is clear that he is not fit to participate at the moment.
Henrique's attempt to return was hindered by the severity of his injury, casting a shadow over his availability for the critical upcoming match. His determination to play has been evident, yet his physical condition has made it impossible for him to join the lineup.
Since joining the Oilers, Henrique quickly adapted to his role, surprisingly slotting into the first line left wing position. His integration boosted the team's dynamics, allowing the bottom six forwards to excel, particularly in their penalty kill efforts. However, his absence now forces a strategic reshuffle.
Coach Knoblauch has reformed the first line, reintroducing a high-caliber trio of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Connor McDavid, and Zach Hyman. Meanwhile, Corey Perry has been sidelined to bring in Sam Carrick, adding speed and physicality to the mix.
Henrique's absence in game 7 is undoubtedly a blow to the Oilers, especially given the stakes of this playoff game. However, the team is no stranger to overcoming challenges, with numerous players stepping up in times of need. As both teams face similar challenges with injuries, the upcoming game will likely hinge on resilience and tactical execution.
As the Oilers gear up for tomorrow night, the focus is on leveraging their playoff experience and collective talent to secure a victory and advance to the third round. The anticipation is high, and the team's depth will be tested in what promises to be a showdown of endurance and will.
