Oilers' Joensuu In Walking Boot

News: Jesse Joensuu (ankle) was spotted in a walking boot Monday, according to the Edmonton Sun.
Analysis: A walking boot seems to be standard operating procedure for any kind of lower leg injury so it may not indicate a long term injury but it still seems likely that Jesse Joensuu could miss at least the next game or two.

News: Jesse Joensuu (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Hurricanes.

Oilers' Joensuu Suffers Ankle Injury

News: Jesse Joensuu left Friday's game with an ankle injury and will not return.
Analysis: With just five points through 42 games, the fourth-liner hasn't had much of a fantasy impact this season. Jesse Joensuu continues to log about 10 minutes per game, and he still hasn't shown any signs of becoming a top-six forward.

Oilers' Joensuu Struggling To Find Ice

News: Jesse Joensuu has appeared in just 10 games since the New Year.
Analysis: On the nights he's been in the lineup, Jesse Joensuu has been seeing about 10 minutes of ice time per game, limiting his ability to put up numbers. The fourth-liner has accrued just four points and 14 penalty minutes in 35 games to go along with a minus-16 rating.

Oilers' Joensuu Over The Flu

News: Jesse Joensuu (illness) was back on the ice for Monday's practice, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Jesse Joensuu last played Jan. 3, but his recent absences probably had more to do with him being a healthy scratch than being weakened by illness. He's now put the flu behind him but is not guaranteed to be back in the lineup Tuesday vs. the Stars.

Oilers' Joensuu Skates With Team Saturday

News: Jesse Joensuu (back) skated with the team Saturday, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Jesse Joensuu has been skating on his own for the last week, so his involvement with the team Saturday suggests that he could return from injured reserve next week. He's been out since Oct. 14 with a torn muscle in his back.

Oilers' Joensuu A Week Away From Return

News: Coach Dallas Eakins said Jesse Joensuu is a week away from returning.
Analysis: It sounds like Jesse Joensuu has resumed some level of on-ice activities in the last few days, and he'll presumably be put through full-contact practices in the coming days for the Oilers to better gauge how his recovery is proceeding. He could make his return to game action next Saturday against the Flyers.

Oilers' Joensuu Could Play Saturday

News: Jesse Joensuu (back) was on the ice for Saturday's morning skate and could play against the Maple Leafs, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Jesse Joensuu's return would add some needed beef to the forward ranks, assisting a defense that's allowed 4.8 goals per game in four contests. If his back presents no issues during warmups, he'll likely find his place back in the lineup Saturday.

Joensuu Scores In Oilers Debut

News: Jesse Joensuu scored his first goal as an Oiler in the season opener Tuesday against the Jets. He skated 14:10, fired five shots on net and collected two PIM in the loss.
Analysis: The former Islander signed with Edmonton the offseason, and though he was active in the offensive end in this one, it's hard to expect much from a guy who managed just 15 points in 67 games spanning four seasons with the Isles.

Joensuu Signs With Edmonton

News: Jesse Joensuu signed a two-year deal with Edmonton on Friday, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Analysis: The Oilers have plenty of top end offensive talent, now they are looking to add some grit, someone who will do the dirty work in the corners. Jesse Joensuu is that kind of player.

News: Jesse Joensuu (hernia) has been cleared to play and will be added to the Islanders' active roster.
Analysis: Jesse Joensuu, who has yet to suit up for the Isles this season, recorded nine points and 33 PIMs in 42 NHL games last season and he figures to reprise his role as a checking winger with the team now that he's back.

Isles' Joensuu Practicing With Team

News: Jesse Joensuu (hernia) was practicing with the team Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Since the Islanders don't play until Thursday, allowing Jesse Joensuu to get a couple of practices under his belt, it seems likely that he will take the spot vacated due to the injury suffered by Michael Grabner.

Isles' Joensuu Out 5-7 Weeks

News: Jesse Joensuu will miss the next 5-7 weeks after underoing surgery for a sports hernia Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Jesse Joensuu was nothing more than a fourth-line player for the Islanders. His absence should not be missed.

Isles' Joensuu (Groin) Not Expected Back Anytime Soon

News: Jesse Joensuu (groin) is not close to returning to the ice, New York Newsday reports.
Analysis: Jesse Joensuu's groin injury is preventing him from doing as much as skating on his own, so it looks like he could have a lengthier timetable than originally thought. The Islanders officially suspended him last week after he got injured overseas, but he'll be reinstated after he passes a physical.

Isles Suspend Joensuu

News: Jesse Joensuu (groin) has been suspended by the Islanders, according to the Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Jesse Joensuu was suspended for getting hurt while playing overseas. It's curious that the Islanders would take this route; they don't need to pinch pennies, as they're barely above the cap floor as it is. Joensuu will be reinstated once he passes his physical.

Isles' Joensuu (Groin) Won't Be Ready For Start Of Camp

News: Jesse Joensuu is dealing with a groin injury and will not be ready for the start of camp, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: This won't be a huge loss for the Islanders, seeing as Jesse Joensuu didn't skate in the NHL last season and only tallied nine points in 42 games the year before. Once he returns, Jonesuu could find himself fighting just to earn a spot on the roster.

News: Jesse Joensuu signed a one-year, one-way deal with the Islanders on Friday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
