Oilers' Hall, Pouliot placed on IR

Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - The Edmonton Oilers placed forwards Taylor Hall and Benoit Pouliot on injured reserve Tuesday.

Hall has been sidelined since exiting the Oilers' 5-4 shootout win at San Jose on Feb. 2. He returned from an ankle problem to play against the Sharks, but was forced to leave when he was slashed in the same area.

Pouliot injured his foot blocking a shot against the Sharks. He missed 18 games earlier this season with a broken foot.

Additionally, the Oilers recalled goaltender Richard Bachman from Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League after Ben Scrivens tweaked his hamstring late in Monday's 2-1 win at New Jersey.

Forward Ryan Hamilton was also summoned from Oklahoma City.
