It’s the final Injury Report of the season and probably the busiest one yet! Can you believe it? The season has come and gone. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve thrown inanimate objects out of anger, and we’ve cried some more. It’s been a less-than-ideal run, and it’s finally coming to an end.
This past week has been a good one for guys returning from injuries. If you remember, we had quite a busy injury report last week. In my opinion, the more healthy players we have finishing off the season together the better it is. It has to be a good morale thing right?
Just because the season is winding down, doesn’t mean the Capilano Rehab Injury Report needs to wind down as well. We’ve got some fresh new injuries to talk about this week, so let’s get to it!
It was the news we’ve all been expecting, but the Oilers have officially shut down Oscar Klefbom for the season as he will undergo a procedure to correct whatever is wrong with his shoulder.
Alright so I’ve slept on the weird idea of Klefbom temporarily coming back for a couple days only to have more surgery and be shut down for the remainder of the year.
According to Oilers head coach, Todd McLellan, Oscar Klefbom will miss the next two games to undergo a “minor procedure.” Could that lead to something more significant? That’s what the Oilers are trying to find out.
While watching last nights game I was getting prepared to include Iiro Pakarinen in my injury report today after Cal Clutterbuck randomly broke his stick over Iiro’s back. Thankfully the hockey gods were nice to us and Iiro returned to the game unscathed. If you’re wondering about Clutterbuck, don’t worry, Jujhar Khaira took care of…
We’ve had a lot of ups and downs this past week. The bulk of the injuries in the last half of the season have just been minimal which is fortunate. It’s been mostly guys taking an extra day off to heal up a nagging pain or bruise. This is understandable based on the position in…
Earlier today, the Oilers dealt Brandon Davidson to the New York Islanders for a prospect. Soon after, they made a corresponding roster move by activating Andrej Sekera from the Injured Reserve and recalling forward Ty Rattie from the AHL.
There are 22 games left in the regular season and the injuries are beginning to pile up. I often wonder if they’re actually injuries or if it’s just guys taking an extra day off because they’re feeling more down than normal. I’d like to believe that if the Oilers were in playoff contention we wouldn’t…
The injuries are starting to add up for the Edmonton Oilers and at this point in the season, I’m not even surprised. Is it time to start shutting some guys down for the season to rest up for a big playoff push next year? Let’s take a look.
After a lengthy hiatus from the team due to the tragic passing of his father, Adam Larsson has returned to practice with the Oilers today. There’s no word on whether or not he’ll play tomorrow in Arizona, but one would imagine he’ll be back in the lineup this weekend.
