Sekera (illness) is expected to return to the Oilers’ lineup on Tuesday.
Sekera has missed the last two games with an illness, but is expected to return to the lineup tonight in Columbus. Sekera has had a nice season, collecting four goals and 13 assists (17 points) in 36 games. Expect him to draw back into the lineup on the second pair with Kris Russell.
Sekera is expected to make his Kings debut on Friday.
Sekera was on the ice for the Kings optional morning skate, but the optional made it difficult to decipher whether or not he will play. However, you don’t trade for a player to sit him in the press box, so expect him to replace Jamie McBain in the lineup tonight.
Sekera passed his physical and has been cleared to play tonight, so it is up to coach Darryl Sutter to decide whether or not Sekera will be in the lineup tonight. It seems likely that he will play, but monitor his status during pre-game warmups.

Sekera is a pending unrestricted free agent, but definitely bolsters the Kings blue line in the short term. Defence was not a huge need for the Kings until Slava Voynov ran into trouble with the law. Sekera is a strong puck-moving defenseman, who brings a solid amount of offence to the table. He has 19 points (2G / 17A) in 57 games this season.
Sekera missed Thursday’s game with an undisclosed injury, but he will be back in the lineup this afternoon vs. the Red Wings. Sekera will replace Jay Harrison in the lineup. He has eight assists in 23 games this season.
Sekera missed practice on Wednesday and today’s morning skate. Head coach Bill Peters said that Sekera is “real close, but now 100%,” so he will sit tonight. The Hurricanes are hoping to have Sekera back by Sunday vs. Detroit.
Sekera (upper-body) will return to the Hurricanes lineup on Tuesday.
Sekera missed just one game after a scary collision with the end-boards last week. He will be back on the top-pair with Justin Faulk. He has two assists and a minus-2 rating in three games this season.
Sekera (upper-body) once again took part in Hurricanes practice on Monday.
Sekera missed last Thursday's game with an upper-body injury but has been skating with the team for consecutive days. Head coach Bill Peters said that there is no guarantee that Sekera will play, so monitor his status during Tuesday's morning skate.
