Klefbom suffered the injury when he blocked a shot in Tuesday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche. After that game, head coach Ken Hitchcock said the injury would sideline Klefbom for “weeks, not days.“
The Oilers are dealing with a few injuries on their blue line right now. Defenceman Andrej Sekera has missed the entire season after tearing his Achilles tendon over the summer while Kris Russell was placed on injured reserve Thursday with an undisclosed injury.
In 31 games this season, Klefbom has three goals and 15 points.
