If injuries were felines, the Oilers would be catnip. Injuries wait for the lights at Rexall to go on and then find their station along the wall and in the middle of the ice. If we could find them, maybe we could stop the madness.
Ben Eager has a concussion, no doubt a result of the blow in photo. Eager has had a few during his NHL career, this is his second as an Oiler and fourth since 2007. Among other things, this is an enormous opportunity. With Eager hurt and Ryan Jones on the IR, both Hartikainen and Paajarvi have a small window of opportunity to establish themselves.
