Just saw this:
The Edmonton Oilers should find out within the next 24 hours the status of defenceman Ryan Whitney, but they're not expecting him back any time soon.
Whitney, 27, will meet with a surgeon on Monday, with the possibility his season will be shut down because of a right ankle injury. The most optimistic scenario would see him return before the end of the regular season.
Was this the same ankle he was having problems with when he was with the Pens?
