He’s apparently had the problem since the beginning of the season. It’s probably just me but the Oilers always seem to have problems diagnosing these things in a timely fashion and I’m reminded of a career lost (Doug Lynch) due to a slow response to a (wrist) injury.
Do the Edmonton Oilers have a good medical staff? Are they more or less prone to these injuries than other clubs?
I don’t know. But 43 games is a long time to play on a wheel that isn’t mending.
