Edmonton Oilers assign winger Alexei Mikhnov to AHL Wilkes-Barre

Mikhnov, the Oilers' first choice in the 2000 draft, made his NHL debut with Edmonton in a 5-2 win versus the Phoenix Coyotes on Oct. 23. He was scoreless over four minutes 21 seconds of ice time in his only game to date this season.

Mikhnov joined the Oilers this season after playing the last nine seasons in Russia. His last Russian team, Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, filed a lawsuit last month claiming that he was still under contract with them and argued that he shouldn't be able to play anywhere else.
