News: Coach Todd Nelson described Matt Hendricks as "banged up" and questionable to play Thursday against the Sharks, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks logged 11:34 of ice time in the surprise victory over the Kings, but wasn't able to escape the game with his health intact. The Oilers recalled forward Curtis Hamilton from AHL Oklahoma City on Wednesday, and he'll suit up Thursday if Hendricks can't go.

Oilers' Hendricks Out Third Straight

News: Matt Hendricks (back) will not play Wednesday against the Ducks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks is traveling with the Oilers on their road trip and was able to skate with the team Wednesday morning, but he'll still need a little more practice time before re-entering the lineup. He'll head to the press box for a third consecutive game and could be a candidate to play Thursday against the Kings.

Oilers' Hendricks Will Join Team On Road Trip

News: Matt Hendricks (back) will travel with the Oilers for their upcoming road trip, Reid Wilkins of 630 CHED radio reports.
Analysis: It isn't clear if Matt Hendricks will be able to suit up for the first game of the Oilers' road trip on Monday against Colorado, but the fact that he is travelling with the team is certainly encouraging news. The Oilers should provide an update on his status prior to Monday's contest against the Avalanche.

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Out Friday

News: Matt Hendricks (back) will not play Friday against the Stars.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks succumbed to the injury in Wednesday's win over the Avalanche, skating just 8:27 before leaving the contest. The winger provides toughness in the Oilers' bottom-six ranks with 205 hits and 76 PIM on the season, but his limited offense and his poor plus/minus rating doesn't make him an appealing fantasy target.

3/25/2015

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Exits With Back Injury

News: Matt Hendricks suffered a back injury in Wednesday's game against the Avalanche and will not return, Chris Wescott of the Oilers' website reports.

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks To Return From Two-Game Absence

News: Matt Hendricks (ankle) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Bruins, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: After missing the previous two games with the ankle injury, Matt Hendricks will swap back into the lineup as a member of the Oilers' fourth line. Aside from racking up hits (150) and PIM (60) over his previous 51 games this season, Hendricks has been a non-entity in the fantasy realm due to the lack of offense he provides.

2/16/2015

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks (Ankle) Out Monday

News: Matt Hendricks (ankle) won't return to the lineup Monday against the Jets, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks missed Saturday's game because of the ankle issue, and it will prevent him from suiting up Tuesday as well. His absence likely won't have a huge impact in most leagues, as he has just 13 points in 51 games this season. His next chance to return will come Wednesday against the Bruins.

2/14/2015

Matt Hendricks, C, EDM

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Will Not Play Saturday

News: Matt Hendricks (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's game against the Senators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks was on the ice for pregame warmups, but his absence from a regular line indicates he'll head to the press box Saturday. His next opportunity to return to action will come Monday in Winnipeg.

Oilers' Hendricks A Game-Time Decision Saturday

News: Matt Hendricks (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks' exact ailment is a bit unclear at this point, but it could cost him Saturday's contest as a result. His status for Saturday isn't confirmed one way or another yet, but the team should provide an update at some point Saturday. If he's unable to go, Matt Fraser would likely draw into the lineup in his place.

Analysis: Matt Hendricks opened up the scoring for the Oilers and saw his team rally for the win. The American skater has six years of experience but no season with more than 25 points. He's best viewed as a depth player for the Oilers.

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Lights The Lamp Twice

News: Matt Hendricks notched a pair of goals and had four shots on goal in Sunday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks now has three goals in his last four games, giving him five goals and 10 points in 35 games on the season. With 57 PIM and the likelihood of a 10-goal, 20-point season, Hendricks can be of value in some very deep leagues.

Oilers' Hendricks Back In Saturday

News: Matt Hendricks (illness) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Flames, Bob Stauffer of 630 CHED reports.

Oilers' Hendricks Out Tuesday With Illness

News: Matt Hendricks will miss Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, due to an illness.
Analysis: Matt Hendricks' exact illness is unknown at this time, but it will cause him to miss at least Tuesday's contest against the Coyotes. However, the team has a three-day layoff before their next game Saturday against the Flames, so he could return then. Luke Gazdic will draw into the lineup Tuesday in his place.

News: Matt Hendricks (leg) didn't travel with the Oilers to Winnipeg for Wednesday's game, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

Matt Hendricks

Oilers' Hendricks Bags Second Goal

News: Matt Hendricks tallied his second goal of the season Friday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The goal was an unassisted empty-netter with 1:27 remaining in the contest, so there's no need to get excited about Matt Hendricks potentially adding some more offense to his game. The fourth-liner will provide most of his value in the form of hits, a category in which he leads the Oilers with 31.

Oilers' Hendricks Playing Thursday

Analysis: Matt Hendricks left Tuesday's game after taking a Shea Weber slap shot to the leg, but he won't miss any time beyond the initial absence. With seven points in 65 games, he hasn't done much for fantasy owners this season, outside of the 86 PIM.

Oilers' Hendricks Suits Up Saturday

News: Matt Hendricks (head) skated 15:37 in Saturday's loss to the Bruins.
