Publish date:

The Edmonton Oilers have activated captain Ethan Moreau from the injured reserve list.

He's been sidelined since Feb. 28 when he took a stick in the eye during a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Moreau is expected to be wearing a tinted visor when he returns to the lineup for Thursday's home game against Atlanta.

The rugged winger has 12 goals and 11 assists in 61 games this season.
