Edmonton recalled Granlund from AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday.
Kailer Yamamoto is considered week-to-week with an ankle injury, so Granlund is likely in for an extended stay with the big club. The 26-year-old forward has notched four points in 32 games with the Oilers this season.
Granlund was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday.
Granlund's demotion could be an indication that Sam Gagner (undisclosed) will be good to go for Wednesday's matchup with Boston. In 32 NHL outings this year, the 26-year-old Granlund has notched three goals, one helper and 23 shots while logging 11:00 of ice time per game. This likely won't be the last call-up for Granlund before the end of the regular season.
Granlund was recalled from AHL Bakersfield on Friday.
Granlund has appeared in 31 games for the Oilers this season, notching three goals, one assist and 23 shots. The center will likely compete with Colby Cave for a spot in the lineup while Connor McDavid (lower body) is on the shelf.
