The Oilers have announced that winger Jordan Eberle will be out 4-6 weeks with a shoulder injury.

Eberle left last night's game against Arizona, in the first period, following a collision against the wall behind the Coyotes net. He did not return.

An interesting name on the Bakersfield Condors camp list is Daniil Zharkov. Zharkov was drafted in the third round by the Oilers, 91st overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft. Zharkov is attending the Condors camp on a pro-tryout basis.

Last season, he played with HK Sarov in Russia's VHL and had four goals and nine points in 39 games. He also played with the Nizhny Novgorod junior squad for four games, scoring one goal. The previous season he played in the KHL with Nizhny Novgorod and prior to that he played a pair of seasons with the Belleville Bulls.

He could be an interesting player to keep an eye on, having slipped off the radar of Oilers prospects the past several seasons.

Oilers prospect John Marino of the Tri-City Storm was selected as the CCM Defenceman of the Week in the USHL.

He had three assists in his first game -- the only game played in the week -- helping his squad to a 5-1 win over the Omaha Lancers. He assisted on two goals in the opening frame and then had another in third period.

It's Marino's first season in the USHL. He's slated to attend Harvard next season.
