After tweaking his knee, there were reports that Jordan Eberle may have had an MRI or had one scheduled. However, Oilers Head Coach Dallas Eakins said Thursday that those weren’t true and Eberle, one of their roster’s stars may not be out very long.

“We don’t feel there’s a need for one now,” Eakins said. “Not saying it’s never, but the misinformation in the twitter world is always quite amazing. But he tweaked his knee, there’s no MRI scheduled and we’re hopeful he won’t be out very long.”

Eberle has 53 points (23-30-53) in 69 games this season. He will miss tonight's game against Buffalo.
