Nope, and I don't think the Oilers do either. They have stuck with the November 1st date since prior to surgery. I think RNH will see NHL ice mid October, maybe 3rd week.

Is he playing in any pre season games?
As of yet, nope. RNH has stated that he is not in game form yet.

The "no contact" jersey coming off in camp means nothing if he's not playing in pre season games.
Incorrect. That is a multimillion dollar liability no sane business person would ever make unnecessarily. I could see a team waiving insurance liability for a playoff run, for pre-season, or even the first half of a year...no chance.

If he was cleared to play he'd be playing. You don't sit out a guy for 13-14 games if he's medically cleared.
Incorrect again.

You play your players when they are ready to play. Throwing a player out when they are medically cleared, but not mentally, or (as I suspect) physically ready, you do nothing but hinder their long term development.
