Description: Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney scored his second goal of the season Tuesday against Columbus.
Insight: His first goal came on March 1. The veteran defenseman has been a healthy scratch for much of this season but he could be earning himself more playing time with his recent performance.

Description: Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney expects to be back in the lineup Wednesday after being a healthy scratch Monday. SOURCE: EdmontonOilers.com
Insight: Whitney played in the first eight games and had three assists. However, the veteran also has a minus-21 differential over his last 59 games (including minus-5 this season).
 
11/16/2011 1:03:00 AM
Description: Ryan Whitney is expected to be out of the Oilers' lineup for at least another week with a sprained right knee. TSN
Insight: The fact that Whitney is expected to miss only another week is encouraging, but he has been slowed by the bad knee for several seasons. He has already missed nine games this season because of the injury while playing in only four games.
 
10/27/2011 12:44:00 PM
Description: Ryan Whitney is unlikely to be in the Oilers' lineup for Thursday's game against Washington. TSN
Insight: Whitney left Tuesday's game against Vancouver with a knee injury when he appeared to hit a rut in the ice. The injury may be a complication resulting from his surgically repaired ankle that forced him to miss time both last season and this season.
 
10/18/2011 2:49:00 PM
Description: Ryan Whitney is expected to make his season debut for the Oilers on Tuesday against Calgary. TSN
Insight: Whitney has been sidelined since late December because of ankle surgery, so his minutes will probably be limited on Tuesday. The Oilers' defense is thin, so Whitney should help significantly (27 points and +13 in 35 games last season).
 
1/18/2011 6:04:00 PM
Description: Ryan Whitney will miss the rest of the regular season after undergoing surgery on his ankle on Monday. Edmonton Journal
Insight: At this stage, only owners in keeper formats should retain Whitney. Tom Gilbert and Kurtis Foster should benefit from increased power-play time as a result of Whitney's injury.
 
1/16/2011 1:33:00 AM
Description: According to Hockey Night in Canada, Ryan Whitney will undergo surgery on his injured ankle on Monday. Edmonton Oilers
Insight: Ankle surgery would likely mean that Whitney's season is over. Check back for official word from the Oilers, but this doesn't sound promising for Whitney owners.
 
12/30/2010 6:00:00 PM
Description: Ryan Whitney will be out of the Oilers' lineup at least a month with an ankle injury. Edmonton Journal
Insight: The one month appears to be a minimum time frame, as Whitney needs to wait for the swelling in his ankle to subside. He will see a specialist soon to see if surgery is needed, in which case he would be sidelined awhile longer.
 
12/29/2010 11:57:00 AM
Description: Ryan Whitney left Tuesday's game against Buffalo in the first period with an ankle injury. Edmonton Journal
Insight: The Oilers will update Whitney's status on Wednesday. With all the young guns on the Oilers, Whitney leads the team in scoring with 27 points (2g-25a) and a +13 ranking.
 
12/27/2010 6:02:00 PM
Description: Whitney scored his second goal of the season on Sunday against the Canucks.
Insight: Whitney now has 27 points in 34 games so far this season for the Oilers. (RapidDraft.com)

Insight: Whitney has points in four straight games with a goal and four assists over that span. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/17/2010 8:03:00 AM
Description: Whitney recorded two assists on Thursday night in a win over Columbus.
Insight: Whitney now has three assists over his last two games to give him 24 assists in 31 games this year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/15/2010 9:00:00 AM
Description: Whitney picked up an assist on Tuesday night in a loss to the Leafs.
Insight: Whitney had gone three games without a point but now has 22 assists in 30 games so far this season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/3/2010 8:04:00 AM
Description: Whitney picked up two assists on Thursday night against the Leafs.
Insight: Whitney has three assists in his last four games to give him 20 assists on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/15/2010 8:04:00 AM
Description: Whitney picked up an assist on Sunday in a loss to the Rangers.
Insight: Whitney continues to play well as he now has assists in four of his last five games. He has five assists over that span to give him 14 assists on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/30/2010 12:20:00 AM
Description: Ryan Whitney sat out Tuesday's preseason game against Phoenix after taking a puck to the face during Sunday's game. TSN
Insight: Whitney did not have any broken bones, but he was still dealing with a headache. Don't expect this injury to affect him long-term.
 
9/23/2010 2:05:00 AM
Description: Ryan Whitney recorded assists on all three Oilers goals in their 3-2 win over Vancouver in exhibition play on Wednesday. TSN
Insight: Whitney scored 11 points (3g-8a) in 19 games after being acquired by the Oilers last season. With Sheldon Souray likely booted out of town, expect Whitney to see a ton of icetime for the Oils. Don't expect him to help in the plus/minus department, however.
