The Edmonton Oilers announced today that defenseman Adam Larsson has been activated from the injury reserve, and that there's good chances he could play tonight against the San Jose Sharks tonight.

Larsson has been sidelined since November 28th with an upper-body injury. He registered four points in 25 games before being injured. The 25-year old defenseman, drafted fourth overall by the New Jersey Devils in 2011, was acquired via trade by the Oilers in the summer of 2016 for Taylor Hall.

In 378 games played in the NHL, the Swedish defenseman produced 92 points, and added seven points in 18 playoff games.

The Oilers are currently seventh in the Pacific division with a record of 14-17-2.
