Henrique did not skate with the team on Tuesday and is considered “day-to-day,” according to Oilers coach Kris Knoblauch.

Mattias Janmark will likely replace Henrique on Edmonton’s top line when the best-of-seven series gets underway against the Canucks.

Henrique, 34, contributed one goal and one assist in the Oilers’ five-game first-round victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

Acquired in a March 6 trade, Henrique posted 51 points (24 goals, 27 assists) in 82 games with the Anaheim Ducks and Oilers in the 2023-24 season.

The 14-year veteran has produced 530 points (263 goals, 267 assists) over 912 career games with the New Jersey Devils, Ducks and Oilers.
