Another game, another injury.
Patrick Maroon, Oscar Klefbom, Kris Versteeg, Iiro Pakarinen, Brandon Davidson and now Matt Hendricks have been injured so far this preseason. Maroon only missed a week and he looked great last night scoring a goal and adding an assist. Klefbom was also only out a few days. Davidson and Versteeg still aren't skating, but they are listed as day-to-day. Pakarinen is out a month and Hendricks will be out weeks according to head coach Todd McLellan. It has not been a good start, injury-wise, for the Oilers.
Hendricks was a lock to be the fourth line left winger on opening night and he would have been the on the Oilers' first PK unit with Mark Letestu. His injury has opened the door for Anton Slepyshev and Tyler Pitlick to earn a spot on the roster, but it creates a hole on the PK unit.
