SMID HAS SEPARATED SHOULDER

Steve Tambellini announced on After Hours on CBC that Ladislav Smid has a separated A/C joint, but didn’t say how long he’ll be out.

The Oilers blueline wasn’t that strong to begin with, and Smid’s injury will put even more pressure on the backend.

You have to think the Oilers will be claiming a D-man on waivers sometime this week.
