Edmonton Oilers defenceman Nikita Nikitin left the teams Thursday night game against the Vancouver Canucks with a lower-body injury and did not return. Jack Lambert Jersey . The 28-year-old Russian blueliner went down awkwardly after getting tangled up with Canucks centre Cal OReilly. OReilly was assessed a holding penalty on the play, while Nikitin went to the Oilers dressing room with an ankle injury. A team tweet confirmed the injury later in the game. The Oilers acquired Nikitin from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft and signed the pending unrestricted free agent to a two-year, $9 million deal prior to the opening of free agency on July 1. Nikitin wore a walking boot after the game for precautionary reasons. According to head coach Dallas Eakins, Nikitin twisted his ankle and will miss 1-2 weeks. Lynn Swann Jersey . - The Oakland Athletics have finalized an agreement on a 10-year extension to play at the Coliseum through the 2024 season. Landry Jones Jersey .35 million. The right-hander had agreed last February to a deal that pays him $3.775 million this year and allows him to earn an additional $225,000 in bonuses based on games finished. http://www.footballsteelerstore.us/Black-Friday-Cameron-Heyward-Jersey/ .com) - Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is set to return Tuesday against Nashville after sitting out the past two games because of a minor upper body injury.Dewi Morris shares his five key talking points ahead of the Challenge Cup final between Harlequins and Montpellier. Harlequins arrive in Lyon with a large Montpellier side standing between them and the trophy. The threat of the Top 14 side is obvious, with a recent eight-game winning streak taking them to the top two in their domestic competition.However, there are plenty of English stars in the Harlequins side, can they repel the streamrolling Frenchmen? Dewi Morris looks at five key talking points... Coaches cornerTo me Harlequins have revolutionised the English game under Conor OShea, and they will want to send him off with a trophy to thank him for his service. On the same note, OShea himself will want to prove his credentials on the big stage before he heads for Italy. In boxing they say styles make fights, and that saying will resonate in France this weekend. Dewi Morris The Irishman has already brought Challenge Cup silverware to the London club in what has been a quite successful period for Quins, but he certainly has his work cut out for him on Friday.In the room next to him will be Jake White, who voiced his desire to coach England when he was in the UK for Montpelliers match against Quins at the Stoop in November, and dont forget he won the World Cup with the Springboks in 2007. Can Harlequins win the European Challenge Cup to add to Conor OSheas silverware at the London club? White has lured a host of South Africans over to France and will have promised them long-term success along with euros, and with Montpellier chasing two trophies at the business end of the season, White will be hoping to deliver on at least one front.Honours even Harlequins beat Montpellier in November The Round 1 meeting between these sides in the group stages of the tournament ended in a 41-18 hiding for Montpellier, but the Top 14 side returned the favour with a 42-9 victory at Altrad Stadium in January.Theres not much to separate the sides this season, and to make it even more difficult to figure out who has the mental edge going into this game, both sides arrive on the back of heavy losses in their domestic leagues.Quins were humbled by Exeter Chiefs to the tune of 62-24 in the final round of the Premiership, while Montpellier were treated to a 36-10 loss to La Rochelle to bring an end to their eight-game winning streak. Will Greenwood previews the Challenge Cup final between Harlequins and Montpellier It would be fair to say that both sides had one eye on this weekends clash when theyy lost those fixtures, but the fact is neither will be bringing any immediate momentum into Fridays kick-off. Jack Butler Jersey. Smash v PanacheIn boxing they say styles make fights, and that saying will resonate in France this weekend. On the one side youve got the French team who will use their South Africans to smash, bang and wallop everything, while Quins will be trying to move the ball around as much as possible.Montpellier have a growling pack filled with grit, and Harlequins have the quick hands and running game that can punish opposition defences when they fracture under pressure. Jamie Roberts looks ahead to Harlequins game against Montpellier Four of the Montpellier tight five are bruising South Africans who will be tough to stop with ball in hand, but if Quins are smart they will keep the ball away from the contact area and force the likes of the Du Plessis brothers and Paul Willemse to run around the park for as long as possible.Tiring out the Montpellier forwards will be high on OSheas agenda.Nick Evans v Demetri CatrakilisI cant see Harlequins turning over this Montpellier side, but if they do manage it, the saving grace will be Nick Evans.Just as Racing 92 have a former All Black fly-half tasked with spearheading their challenge for European glory, Harlequins are pinning their hopes on a big performance from - in my opinion - one of the best ever overseas signings in the Premiership. Demetri Catrakilis has his work cut out against Nick Evans Opposite Evans is Demetri Catrakilis, another of Whites South Africans who moved to France from the Stormers. He has been fighting Francois Trinh-Duc for the No 10 jersey all season, which has benefited the squad.Evans up against Trinh-Duc would have been an interesting tussle, but one thing to remember is that Trinh-Duc has been injured for some time, and has missed the big winning run that Montpellier went on this year. Champions Cup: Pundit predictions Sky Sports pundits give their predictions for Saracens v Racing 92 Catrakilis will be more than trusted by White to do the job but he will likely be overshadowed by the sheer wealth of experience that Evans boasts. Will that be enough to get Harlequins up on the podium?Kicking to the backHarlequins have in Mike Brown a world leader in taking the high ball, and someone who is happy to run the ball back at opposition defences - he is a genuine threat in space.Montpellier have opted for Benjamin Fall, who is an interesting selection at full-back. The Frenchman will also be happy to run the ball back at the Quins line if they kick poorly, but White wont want to venture too far from the kind of rugby that wins finals. Make no mistake, despite the ambition of the individual players and the generally accepted ways of the Top 14, the Montpellier boys will kick plenty. However, when the back three do choose to run, Harlequins will need to switch on. Likewise if Brown is able to break through the middle and unleash his wingers out wide it could be a long night for the Montpellier side.Intelligent kicking out of hand, from the back three as well as the fly-halves, will be a requirement rather than a desire.Watch Harlequins v Montpellier live on Sky Sports 2 from 7.3pm on Friday.
