The NHL club recalled left-winger Alexei Mikhnov from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the AHL on Sunday.

Smyth, who had scored 16 goals in 24 games, hurt his thumb in the first period of a 4-0 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Mikhnov, the Oilers' first choice in the 2000 entry draft, had three goals and seven assists in 13 games after being assigned to the AHL team Nov. 4. The only NHL game the six-foot-five Ukrainian appeared in was on Oct. 23.
