EDMONTON - Nearly a year ago, Nikolai Khabibulin felt a twinge in his hip.

When the pain didn't go away, the Edmonton Oilers goaltender decided to undergo off-season surgery to repair the problem.

Now despite the NHL lockout, Khabibulin is still collecting his paycheck, rehabilitating the injury with the Oilers training staff.
