Edmonton Oilers defenseman Oscar Klefbom is expected to be sidelined weeks having a hand injury sustained during Tuesday night’s win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Klefbom was hurt obstructing a shot, and coach Ken Hitchcock said after this match,”I would say weeks for certain, after which we’ll see from there.”

The Oilers placed Klefbom on injured reserve Wednesday and recalled defenseman Caleb Jones out of Bakersfield (AHL).

25, klefbom, is currently leading Edmonton in ice hockey in 25:25 per match and has three goals and 12 assists in 31 games.

He had a shoulder injury in March that cut his 2017-18 season and necessitated surgery.

The Oilers also triggered forward Drake Caggiula and assigned forwards Cooper Marody into Bakersfield.
