The 32-year-old left wing, who helped the Oilers reach the Stanley Cup finals in 2006, dislocated his right shoulder just eight games into last season and didn't play again. He had recently signed a four-year contract extension through 2011, before getting hurt.
Then in September, Moreau took a slap shot off his left ankle in a preseason game. He was supposed to miss a few weeks, but the injury was later discovered to be worse than initially diagnosed.
Moreau, a first-round draft pick by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1994, has 224 points in 685 career games. Saturday night, he started on a line with Andrew Cogliano and Fernando Pisani against the Wild.
