The Edmonton Oilers activated defenceman Denis Grebeshkov from the injured reserve list Sunday.

He missed three games after suffering an upper-body injury in Edmonton's 3-1 win at Carolina on Nov. 1.

Entering Sunday's road game against the New Jersey Devils, Grebeshkov has one goal and four assists in 10 games this season.

The six-foot, 209-pound Russian had 18 points (3-15) in 71 games for the Oilers last season.
