Well, things are sort of up in the air for Zach Hyman.
He left the game against the Carolina Hurricanes Saturday night with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. The reaction from Hyman wasn’t great. You could tell he was in quite a bit of discomfort as he left the ice.
After the game, Tippett said he didn’t have any update on what had happened. With the Oilers taking Sunday off, they returned to practice Monday morning and Hyman wasn’t in any of the Oilers four lines.
And not long after, TSN’s Ryan Rishaug suggested Hyman would be out on a week-to-week basis.
But not long after that, Rishaug walked it back.
So long story short, Hyman may or may not be in the Oilers lineup Tuesday when the Toronto Maple Leafs come to town. Hyman missing any time would be detrimental to a team already plagued with injuries and on a five-game losing skid.
