James Neal continues to prove his scoring touch is back.

The Edmonton Oilers forward has passed his goal total from last season after notching his eighth marker of this campaign in the veteran's sixth game on Monday against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 32-year-old was traded to Edmonton for Milan Lucic in July after potting just seven goals in 63 games with the Calgary Flames during the first season of a five-year, $28.75 million contract.

Lucic, who scored six goals with the Oilers last season, has recorded zero points and 26 penalty minutes so far this year in six games with the Flames.
